TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) -- A south-central Idaho TV weatherman has been charged with felony rape.

Twenty-three-year-old John William Holland appeared in Twin Falls County Magistrate Court on Monday where a judge set bond at $10,000.

Police say that a woman met with the KMVT-TV weatherman at a local restaurant on Friday and went with him back to his dwelling.

Police say the woman reported that Holland initiated sex but that the woman declined three times, but that Holland refused to stop.

Police say the woman contacted authorities who obtained asearch warrant and recovered physical evidence from Holland's residence.

KMVT says the station is reviewing the matter and Holland is currently on leave.

It's not clear if Holland has an attorney.
