LYNDEN, Wash. – A man is accused of molesting a middle school aged boy during a tractor-pull competition in Lynden.

Twenty-eight-year-old Adrian Butler of Marysville was a contestant in the tractor pull at Berthusen Park last month.

Prosecutors say Butler invited the boy into his trailer, gave him alcohol, and offered him $400 to take off his pants.

Butler then took his turn to compete in the tractor pull.

According to court papers, he continued trying to molest the boy after the competition, but the boy refused.

Butler is charged with two counts of second-degree child molestation and one count of second-degree child rape.

He’s out on a $50,000 bond.

His arraignment is scheduled for Friday.
