ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

An investigation into a vehicle obstructing traffic led to an arrest for online solicitation of a minor in Ector County in the early hours of Friday morning.

According to the Ector County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy on routine patrol saw a car at about 3 a.m., in the area of 9843 W. University Blvd., was blocking traffic.

Authorities say the deputy saw a young girl leave a house and get in to the car.

Because it was so early in the morning, along with the car obstructing traffic, the deputy talked to the driver who told him he was picking up his cousin.

Cesar Gonzalez, 26, told the deputy that the 14-year-old girl’s parents knew he was picking her up.

Another female, identified as the minor’s older sister, came out of the house and asked the deputy what her sister was doing out in the yard.

It was then that the deputy told the older girl to go and get her mother who then said that her daughter did not have permission to be out of the house at that time.

An investigation revealed that the 14-year-old had met Gonzalez several months ago on Facebook.

The minor said Gonzalez knew she was only 14, but when questioned, the suspect said he thought she was 15 or 16.

Both Gonzalez and the 14-year-old said they were going to end their friendship that night due to their age difference.

The girl told authorities that Gonzalez had made sexual advances towards her online.

Gonzalez was put into custody initially for lacking a valid ID but was then arrested and charged with online solicitation of a minor.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
