Police arrested William Strampel, the dean of Michigan State's College of Osteopathic Medicine who was Larry Nassar's boss.

The Lansing State Journal said Strampel is lodged in the Ingham County Jail just one night before an update on the investigation on the university from the Attorney General's Office. His booking record did not list charges as of Tuesday morning.

The affidavit in support of the felony misconduct in office and criminal sexual conduct charges relies on testimony from four victims who say Strampel harrased them with actions such as: Requiring a female medical student to turn around in circles so he could observe her body; asked one female student what he had to teach her to be submissive and subordinate to men; and grabbed the buttocks of two female students.

Strampel announced a leave of absence for medical reasons in December previous year.

News of his arrest comes as the state attorney general's lead investigator into how Michigan State handled the Nassar scandal is scheduled to conduct a news conference Tuesday, presumably regarding his findings.

Nassar pleaded guilty to molesting patients and possessing child pornography and is expected to spend the rest of his life in prison.

The warrants were issue for William Derkey Strampel, 70, on Tuesday. He also told the police a year ago he never followed up after ordering Nassar in 2014 to let a third person accompany him and be present when providing treatment to "anything close to a sensitive area". MSU's new interim president then announced he was moving to revoke Strampel's tenure, which would allow him to be terminated.

The Attorney General's investigation, which is being led by special prosecutor William Forsyth, was announced amid two sentencing hearings for Nassar.

Nassar was sacked in 2016 for violating that rule. "This is just the first step in restoring trust in Michigan State".

He admitted in court that he used his position as a prominent doctor at Michigan State and within the USA Gymnastics organization to abuse women who came to see him for injuries.

In March 2017, in an interview with a Michigan State police officer and an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent re-examining the 2014 case, Strampel conceded he never followed up to ensure Nassar was adhering to the rules he put in place in July 2014. Athletes had been complaining about Nassar since the 1990s, but the university did not open an investigation until 2014. Amid intense criticism over its handling of the Nassar case, former Michigan State President Lou Anna Simon and former Michigan State Athletic Director Mark Hollis stepped down from their positions earlier this year.

"Despite his representation of his (and the College's) intended response to the allegations against Nassar, Strampel did not actually enforce or monitor the protocols, nor did he alert other employees in the sports medicine clinic about the existence of the protocols, let alone order that they be followed with respect to Nassar", the affidavit says.
