Once inside the woman said Lai began treatment and at one point asked her take off her clothes but she refused. At some point Lai allegedly told the woman he need to rub her lower back and that she need to pull her shorts down.

The woman told police Lai then put his hands on the lower part of her body and began touching her inappropriately. He allegedly told the woman her tail bone which was at a wrong angle and he need to continue to “apply pressure.” While continuing to touch her the woman said the chiropractor then whispered in her ear, “Do you want me to help you relax?”
