During the assault, a customer came in and Sims reportedly stopped. He told police, “I did nothing”, when asked about the incident.

Sims is charged with sexual battery and being held at the Hamilton County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

This isn’t the first time Sims has been accused of sexual battery. He faced the same charge in December of 2014 when a woman claimed Sims rubbed her back and kissed her against her will. She told police Sims agreed to let her give him a lower payment than what she owed because he thought she was attractive. He’s due in Hamilton County Criminal Court on that charge next month.
