Buck Zumhofe, an AWA star from the 1980s, and a promoter in the U.S. Midwest for years, was arrested on Monday in Kandiyohi County, Minnesota, charged with molesting his daughter years back.

In total, there are 12 criminal sexual conduct charges that have been filed by County Attorney Jennifer Fischer against Eugene Otto Zumhofe, who is 62 years of age.

Zumhofe's daughter, now 29, came forward in March with details of the abuse that occurred while she was a teenager.

Unconditional bond has been set at $500,000, and the conditional bond is $100,000, with the stipulation that he cannot have contact with the victim.

In the AWA, Zumhofe was known for carrying his boombox to the ring, living the rock'n'roll lifestyle. He has been running his Rock & Roll Wrestling promotion since 2000.

SLAM! Wrestling interviewed Zumhofe in 2010: Buck Zumhofe still rolling -- and rocking.
