MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – A former Alabama lawmaker accused of sexually abusing a woman at a restaurant earlier this year has been indicted on a felony charge.

Court records show a Montgomery County grand jury indicted 68-year-old Perry Hooper Jr. on Friday.

A court document says Hooper allegedly grabbed a woman’s breasts and waist, kissed her on the neck and shoved his pelvis into her backside.

It says the woman was behind the host stand at a restaurant and Hooper was leaving.

An attorney for Hooper didn’t immediately return an email seeking comment.

Hooper was initially arrested in August after the incident and remains free on bond.
