DULARGE, La. (AP & KNOE 8 News) - Deputies say a carnival ride attendant from Wisconsin is in jail after a 12-year-old girl told authorities he fondled her at a fair in Dularge.

24-year-old Edward Jackson was booked Saturday on one count of indecent behavior with a juvenile.

The sheriff's office says the girl approached an off-duty deputy working a detail at the Knights of Columbus fair. She told the deputy Jackson allegedly fondled her buttocks after she exited a ride.

Jackson is employed by the Calkins Midway Carnival group and travels around the country as a carnival ride attendant.
