South Florida television personality Bill Kamal was arrested in Fort Pierce Sunday as part of a federal investigation of alleged sexual predator activity, according to law enforcement officials.

The popular chief meteorologist for the WSVN-Fox affiliate is accused of arranging to have sex with a minor, sources said.

Kamal, 47, of Miami Beach was arrested in Florida's Treasure Coast at around 1 p.m., when he showed up for a scheduled meeting that he had arranged via the Internet with an underage person.

Instead, he was met by a detective who arrested him, a source said. At last check, Kamal was being held at St. Lucie County Jail on state pornography charges. He is expected to make his first appearance on separate federal charges in U.S. court today.

U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement and St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office, as well as the U.S. Attorney's Office in Miami, declined to comment on the arrest.

Nina Pruneda, spokeswoman for the immigration agency in Miami, confirmed only that St. Lucie County and federal agents arrested a person on Sunday afternoon who had been targeted by their sexual task force, Operation Predator, launched last year.

Pruneda refused to identify the person or define the charges.

Lily Pardo, a WSVN-Fox spokeswoman, said the station was unaware of the arrest and declined further comment.

''Until we have all the facts, we can't make a statement,'' she said. ''Even then, it is our policy not to comment on personnel matters.'' Kamal could not be reached for comment, and the station could not provide the name of his attorney.

It's not the first time Kamal has been in trouble.

Last November, the weatherman was arrested in Fort Lauderdale on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol. Police say they saw him driving erratically in his black Jaguar.

Police stopped Kamal and called for a DUI investigator. Kamal failed a sobriety test and agreed to a breath test, which revealed .153 and .159 blood-alcohol levels, nearly twice the .08 legal limit. He was arrested and posted a $500 bond. The outcome of that case was unclear Sunday.

In 2000, he faced similar DUI charges when a Florida Highway Patrol trooper found his silver 1998 Corvette against a concrete barrier wall in the westbound lane of Interstate 595 near U.S. 1.

Those charges were reduced to reckless driving. Guillermo Peña, Kamal's attorney in the 2000 DUI arrest, also was unaware of his new arrest.

The popular meteorologist has been with WSVN-Fox 7 for a decade.

He went on the air more than 300 times during the recent series of hurricanes that hit South Florida this year.

''When the storm hits, I crash, because that's when my work is done,'' he told The Herald recently.

``News is news after it happens; weather is news before it happens

In an interview, one of his fellow Channel 7 anchors said Bill Kamal was "anal."

That's too easy. :)

This goes out as a warning if you are the type that chats on a chatroom and then suddenly chats with a 15 years old. Which in the end you are wanting to meet in person watch out. Because the Cops might be behing that character. Bill Kamal might be a perverted man but this can happen to anybody, just be mature and dont chat to underage girls in chatrooms because it might be the police. Poo guy I actually liked him as a weather man.
