KEOKUK, Iowa (AP) - A chiropractor in southeast Iowa has been charged with simple assault after authorities say he engaged in inappropriate contact with a female patient in his office.

The Keokuk Police Department says Andrew William Kearse was arrested Tuesday afternoon, though Kearse answered the phone Wednesday when contacted at his office in Keokuk. He declined to comment on the charge.

Authorities say they began investigating Kearse in June after receiving an allegation that the 32-year-old engaged in inappropriate contact with a female patient during an appointment at his office. Additional information was not released.
