FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — A local TikTok chef has been arrested on child pornography charges.
Kristopher Westbrook, 38, was booked into the Washington County Detention Center at 10:04 a.m. on Friday on charges of possessing, distributing, and viewing child pornography, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
Westbrook has a TikTok account called Wharf Rat Kris and has over 155,000 thousand followers on the platform. In some of the videos, Westbrook claims to be cooking for the Delta Gamma sorority house at the University of Arkansas.
KNWA/FOX24 contacted Delta Gamma’s national chapter and they said Westbrook was not employed by the chapter.

According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office website, this was Westbrook’s fifth booking.
