Winter Haven, Florida -- A lieutenant with the Winter Haven Fire Department was arrested for inappropriately touching a girl for 6 years from the time she was 9 years old.
During an interview with detectives on May 3, 44-year-old Bobby Creech admitted to touching the girl's breasts from 1997 to 2006 during what he called "sweet hugs" and "tickle fights".
In a statement, he apologized to the girl, now 24, for everything he had done to her and that he has hated himself for so long for what he did.
Creech, of Tampa, is being charged with Lewd Molestation.
Back in February 2012, Creech was charged with Kidnapping, Battery and Tampering with a Victim after he forced his former girlfriend into a vehicle after an argument. Police say the woman had abrasions and she told them he threatened her life.
