A Delaware Deputy Attorney General has been arrested for sexually assaulting an underage boy he met on Grindr.

Daniel Simmons, 34, of Wilmington, met the 16-year-old boy on the popular gay and bisexual dating app earlier this year, authorities said.

He has been charged with four counts of fourth-degree rape for his encounters with the teen, according to the Delaware News Journal.

Simmons was arrested Friday after a more than one month investigation looked into his interactions with the boy, sources told the paper. That investigation found that Simmons was the primary aggressor in the encounters, authorities said.
