KERNERSVILLE, N.C. — The former assistant fire chief in Kernersville was charged Monday with taking indecent liberties with a child.

Timothy Scott Swaim, 46, of the 3700 block of Flat Rock Road in Kernersville, is accused of taking a picture of a naked 15-year-old girl, according to a court record. The felony offense occurred in November 2008, an arrest warrant states.
