BATON ROUGE - Sheriff's deputies accused an Ethel man of prostitution with a juvenile in East Baton Rouge after investigators said they caught him in the act.

Deputies arrested Verginald Smith, 41, Sunday on suspicion of prostitution and indecent behavior with a juvenile.

According to arrest records, deputies were called to a vacant residence Hiawatha Street after someone reported a suspicious vehicle there. When they approached, deputies said they saw Smith and someone else in the vehicle, and that Smith's pants were around his ankles.
