Gregory Hudnet, 64 -- who is known to Baltimore sports fans as the "Baltimore Birdman" because of the colorful outfits he wears to Ravens games and community events -- was arrested Wednesday on multiple sexual abuse charges, WBAL-TV, Baltimore, reported Thursday.
Baltimore County Police spokeswoman Elise Armacost said Hudnet was charged after a full investigation by the department's Crimes Against Children's Unit into allegations Hudnet sexually abused his alleged victim at various locations in the county between 2005-08, when the accuser was 12-14 years old.
The alleged victim is a relative of Hudnet, police said.
"Personally, I feel like the victim tried to seduce me," Hudnet is quoted as saying in charging documents. "Now, the victim is trying to destroy me."
Hudnet -- who retired from the Fire Department as a captain in 2008 -- is free on $750,000 bail.
He received the department's Firefighter of the Year award in 2007.
Calls to Hudnet's attorney had not been returned Thursday afternoon, WBAL said.
