A Pensacola, Florida dentist who was blocked from treating women after multiple sexual abuse complaints were filed against him, has reportedly been arrested again after another woman came forward to accuse him of misconduct.

Dr. Charles Stamitoles was jailed on Friday for a battery charge, according to WEAR-TV. It was his fourth arrest since late May for allegedly touching female patients inappropriately.

The outlet reported that in the latest incident, a patient accused Stamitoles, 65, of kissing her forehead and telling her she was beautiful. She also accused the doctor of trying to force her to touch her private parts.

In another incident, the woman alleged that Stamitoles grabbed her breasts while she was in the dental chair. She said she didn’t tell him when it happened because he was about to give her a chance.

According to WEAR, the woman told investigators she waited to press charges because she owed money to Stamitoles for her dental work.

Stamitoles was released from jail on $25,000 bond.

In June, the Florida Department of Health filed an emergency order requiring Stamitoles to treat only men.
