    Hurst owns We Knead Bodies, a massage clinic located in the Prestonbrook Crossing shopping center, police said.

    Peter Schulte, Hurst's attorney, said Hurst did nothing wrong and warned against a rush to judgment

    "Any person accused of a crime in this state is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law," Schulte said in a statement. "Since my client is not guilty of this accusation, we ask the public to withhold their opinion until all the facts are known."

    Police said their investigation determined that a crime occurred.

    "During the course of the massage, there was some unwanted touching and some things that amounted to more than a mere massage," Henderson said.
