Police arrested William Strampel, the dean of Michigan State's College of Osteopathic Medicine who was Larry Nassar's boss. He declined to say what charges Strampel faces before the defendant is arraigned on Tuesday.

The arrest came after the Michigan Attorney General's Office called a press conference to give an update on its investigation into Michigan State University. Strampel is now in the Ingham County Jail system, according to jail records.

The probe against William Strampel was being led by the attorney general's office.

Strampel, 70, is the first person to be charged in connection with the scandal besides Nassar, who is serving decades in prison for molesting patients under the guise of treatment and for possessing child pornography.

Strampel worked at MSU from 1999 until December, when he took a leave of absence for medical reasons, the university said. 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".

"William Strampel did not act with the level of professionalism we expect from individuals who hold senior leadership positions, particularly in a position that involves student and patient safety", the university's interim president, John Engler, said in a statement.

"When he returned to the clinic in 2014, Nassar and Strampel agreed to a new set of guidelines to use when he was treating patients in sensitive areas". Strampel added any skin-to-skin contact needed to be explained in detail.

"I am happy to have you back in full practice", Strampel told Nassar in an email.

In January, Nassar, a former U.S. gymnastics doctor who worked at MSU, was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison for molesting and sexually assaulting girls he was treating.

Michigan State police and investigators were outside Strampel's DeWitt home as part of an ongoing investigation, according to WILX-TV.
