    A disciplinary panel has temporarily suspended the license of a physician assistant facing sexual assault charges against a minor.

    Rodger Daniel Reid, 51, was arrested by the Fort Worth police on charges of aggravated sexual assault of a minor under 14 on May 12.

    The alleged incident reportedly took place a month earlier on April 12.  Further details about the case have not yet been released.

    Reid's license was suspended after the Texas Physician Assistant Board determined he would be a "continuing threat to public welfare" if were allowed to continue practicing medicine as he may still come into contact with children.

    "A temporary suspension hearing with notice will be held as soon as practicable with 10 days' notice to Mr. Reid, unless the hearing is specifically waived by Mr. Reid. The temporary suspension remains in place until the Board takes further action," the TPAB said in a news release.

    Reid, who lives in Fort Worth, is currently free after posting $25,000 bond.
