‘Sabado’ guest arrest

A Spanish-language actor and frequent guest on the popular Univision show “Sabado Gigante” has been charged with possessing child pornography, the Associated Press reports.

Adonis Losada, 45, was arrested Friday at his Miami Beach apartment, a police report said. Investigators found a child pornography image Mr. Losada sent to a social networking Web site, police said.

Mr. Losada, a native of Cuba, impersonates the flighty but sweet grandmother Dona Concha on “Sabado Gigante.”
