A Petaluma chiropractor suspected of wrongly touching a customer he was treating was arrested Tuesday afternoon.
Steven Allen Jette, 73, was apprehended at the Harbor Master's Office along the Petaluma Marina, where he works part time as a port captain, Petaluma Police Lt. Ed Crosby said.
He was booked into the Sonoma County Jail on suspicion of a felony sexual battery count that prohibits sexual touching under the guise of a professional purpose.
Petaluma authorities launched an examination into Jette on Jan. 8 after a routine patient of Jette's reported that he had wrongly touched her the day before at his Fourth Street workplace in Petaluma, Crosby stated.
Investigators had the ability to prove the lady's account before making their arrest, Crosby stated. He decreased to elaborate further on the case.
Jette stayed in custody at the Sonoma County Jail on bail of $30,000 Tuesday night. He was set up to appear in court Thursday afternoon.
