A Smith County man remained jailed in Rusk County Tuesday on indecency with a child charges after he kissed and touched a 15-year-old girl after giving her alcohol and a prescription medication. 

The incident, being investigated by the Smith County Sheriff's Office, occurred at Lake Tyler near the Old Omen boat ramp Monday. 

Sheriff's officials released information Tuesday that Brandon Michael Stahl, 25, had been arrested on the charges after the teen made an outcry about the incident.

The arrest affidavit in the case states Stahl had taken the girl, a relative, to get something to drink and gave her a margarita beer and then gave her an Adderall pill to take. 

The teen told authorities Stahl asked her to go swimming and told her she could swim in her bra and shorts. 

"...advised Brandon was holding her and started to kiss her on the cheeks, arms and shoulders," the affidavit states.

The teen told authorities she knew it was bad, but could not get her body to move. 

Stahl's sister and another relative went looking for the two when they failed to return home, and found them at the lake.

The affidavit stated the girl's niece said the teen could barely stand and was confused.

Stahl is being held on a $75,000 bond.
