Chad Curtis, a former MLB outfielder who played for six teams and won the World Series as a member of the Yankees in 1998 and '99, was charged today with five counts of sexual misconduct in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Curtis, 43, had been working as a volunteer at a local high school, but he was suspended a couple of weeks ago as prosecutors launched a criminal investigation into claims that he had touched several students inappropriately. Television station News 8 says Curtis allegedly "touched the female athletes during therapeutic assistance to an injury, but it crossed the line into touching and kissing intimate parts." Curtis denies the allegations.
