Harare, Zimbabwe (CNN) - Authorities in Zimbabwe on Tuesday said they have arrested former U.S. Rep. Melvin Reynolds, accusing him of violating the country's immigration laws and possessing pornographic material.

"He is still in custody and will go to court as soon as possible - hopefully before Friday. For us he will answer allegations of flouting immigration laws," Francis Mabika, a senior Zimbabwe immigration official, told CNN. Police spokeswoman Charity Charamba had referred to Mabika all questions regarding Monday's arrest.
