A Lexington County chiropractor has arrested for a second time this week and charged with the sexual assault of a third female patient.
Ronald Jeffrey Shows was continuing to treat patients when he was arrested shortly before 5 p.m. today at his chiropractic office at 2243-C Leaphart Road near West Columbia, Lexington County Sheriff James Metts said in a statement.
An 18-year-old unnamed patient accused the 51-year-old chiropractor of improperly touching her private parts during treatment Nov. 23, 2010, for a lower back problem.
Shows was originally arrested Tuesday on two counts of second degree assault and battery in connection with the sexual assault of two other female patients, in December 2010 and March 2011.
Metts said Shows, of Hummingbird Drive, West Columbia, returned to work after posting $30,000 bond and being released from detention Wednesday morning.
