(UPDATE) 11:04 a.m.- We have just learned Breazid “Sid” Lewis has previously been arraigned and pled not guilty on charges of assault with a firearm and corporal injury of a spouse last February in Butte County, according to court documents. His next scheduled court date is April 30. We are working to find out more details and will bring you a full report tonight at 5 p.m.

Butte County Sheriff Deputies arrested Breazid “Sid” Lewis for allegedly masturbating in front of a female minor in his home. Lewis was arrested yesterday and booked into the Butte County Jail but has since posted his $5,000 bail.

The Butte County Sheriff’s Office first received the report of the incident on February 7. During their investigation, detectives learned the minor had been a former student of Chico School of Rock, a business Lewis owns and operates. According to the sheriff’s press release, Lewis was paying the girl to do various house work jobs in his home when on February 7 the minor happened to look up to see Lewis allegedly masturbating and staring at her.

Lewis founded the Chico School of Rock in 2000 and has issued over 15,000 music lessons and organized hundreds of children’s concerts, according to the school's website.

The Butte County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the possibility of other incidents involving Lewis. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Butte County Sheriff’s Office.
