A local chiropractor was arrested after Ottumwa police say he initiated physical contact with his patient that was deemed offensive.

Bruce Lindberg, 62, was charged with assault, a simple misdemeanor.

Court documents say on February 16th, Lindberg provided a chiropractic service to an individual at his office on Richmond avenue. After the service was completed, Lindberg hugged the victim and then kissed the victim on the top of the head.

A warrant for Lindberg’s arrest was issued on April 20 and he was taken into custody on April 25.

Lindberg is currently free after posting bond. Court records say Lindberg has entered a plea of not guilty.

This is sad. Bruce more then likely was not touching in appropriately but was just showing love. Not only his but the Love the Lord ask us to give. It is sad when we can’t hug someone we care about. Please don’t let this stuff change your own thoughts of Bruce. This is so sad.

I would be the first to vote Dr. Bruce Lindberg outstanding citizen of the year for his warm heart and kindness to all of his patients, family, friends, church members, and strangers alike. He always reads any chapture of the Bible by memory I choose for him to read when he works on me. This arrest is absolutely outrageous, and somebody is taking this kind man’s heart way out of context. UNBELIEVABLE!

It’s sad someone has to say something as stupid as I saw about Dr. Bruce Lindberg. I pray you get help for yourself. I’ve never met a more loving man, ever in my life. And he really does want you to know that he really cares about you and your family. He even helped my husband and I German Shepherd, He got right down on our floor and examined our best friends hips. Most loving people know German Shepherds can sense a person’s intentions. Believe this my dog knew, he was a very good person and allowed Dr. to manipulate… Read more »

He’s always been in such a kind fellow and always very versed in the Bible which I love that he can verbalize the scriptures by heart he’s always been soft hearted godly gentleman that this unforeseen for him to be charged like this and the ridiculousness of it. He has a soft touch to his hands and possibly the woman has a mistaken this as advanced it towards her but he’s just a gentleman of God.
