Woah: Missouri Governor ARRESTED for accusations from woman he had an AFFAIR WITH…

The Missouri governor has been denying allegations from his former mistress, but it sounds like a grand jury thought there was enough evidence to indict and arrest the dude.

More from Reuters:

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens was indicted on a felony invasion of privacy charge, a St. Louis prosecutor said in a statement on Thursday.

The indictment stems from a probe into an extramarital affair and an allegation of blackmail involving the Republican governor. Kimberly Gardner, city of St. Louis circuit attorney, cited an incident that took place on March 21, 2015, in St. Louis.



More from USA Today:

Greitens admitted Jan. 10 that he had an affair with a woman who was cutting his hair. He has denied the woman’s claim — apparently recorded without her knowledge in March 2015 by her ex-husband — that he allegedly tied her up, photographed her and threatened to release the image if she spoke of their affair.

Greitens “knowingly photographed (the woman) in a state of full or partial nudity without the knowledge and consent of (the woman) and in a place where a person would have a reasonable expectation of privacy, and (Greitens) subsequently transmitted the image contained in the photograph in a manner that allowed access to that image by a computer,” the indictment says.

Less than an hour after the indictment was made public, Edward L. Dowd Jr., an attorney with the Dowd Bennett law firm representing Greitens, responded that he would be moving to dismiss the charge.

“In forty years of public and private practice, I have never seen anything like this,” Dowd said in a statement. “The charges against my client are baseless and unfounded. My client is absolutely innocent.”

Wow. That’s insane. It’ll be interesting to see where these allegations end up…
