Countertenor David Daniels and his husband, conductor Scott Walters, were arrested Tuesday night in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on charges of sexual assault, American broadcaster NPR announced. The arrested individuals are waiting for extradition to Texas.

Daniels has been accused of sexual assault in two separate cases in 2010 and 2017. According to the allegation, Daniels and, in one case, his husband drugged and raped two young men.

In a statement the lawyer of the arrested artists says: « David and Scott are innocent of any wrongdoing. Sam Schultz is not a victim. He never would have gotten this much attention from his singing, and he knows and resents that fact. He waited eight years to complain about adult, consensual sex to ride the MeToo movement to unearned celebrity. We will fight this. »
