NEW YORK (AP) — A former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been arrested in New York on a sex-abuse charge.
The New York Police Department says Thomas Frieden was arrested this morning in Brooklyn.

Frieden also is a former New York City health commissioner and is charged with forcible touching, sex abuse and harassment.
