HOUSTON -- (KTLA) -- Former USA Gymnastics trainer Debbie Van Horn, who worked with Larry Nassar, was arrested at a Houston airport and accused of sexual assault of a child, prosecutors said Thursday.
Van Horn and Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics team doctor, were indicted in June on second-degree sexual assault of a child charges stemming from incidents at the Karolyi Ranch, where for decades numerous Olympians have trained.
Van Horn, who was getting off a plane from China, was detained by Homeland Security officials and arrested at George Bush Intercontinental Airport on a warrant issued after her indictment, according to a release from Walker County District Attorney’s Office. Texas Rangers transported her to the Walker County Jail in Huntsville, where she is being held on a $20,000 bond.
Prosecutors have said one of Nassar’s victims in the case is the same victim Van Horn is charged with assaulting. Van Horn’s charges stem from “acting as a party,” prosecutors said.
