MERAUX, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - St. Bernard Parish sheriff's deputies have arrested a man who threatened to post a sex video on the Internet if his teen-aged girlfriend broke up with him.

The girl, of Violet, told her mother of the alleged threat and she called the sheriff's office.

Authorities say the girl - whose age was not released - wanted to end the relationship with 21-year-old John Johnson Jr., but Johnson claimed he made a sex video of them and threatened to post it online. Detectives say Johnson later admitted that there was no video and had only claimed there was one so the girl wouldn't leave him.

Johnson was booked Friday with two counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile teen and extortion. He's being held on $75,000 bond.
