NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A Davidson County woman says she went to Skyline Hospital for a CT Scan after having a seizure and was sexually assaulted.

According to the affidavit, Adam R. Wright, who is a CT technologist at Skyline Medical Center, is accused of taking her to the scanner. Once inside, the 37-year-old victim felt something brushing her hand. She says she felt him take her hand by the wrist and put it down his pants. He then rubbed her hand up and down his genital. She was brought out of the scanner and pulled her hand away from him.

After asking what he was doing, Wright allegedly laughed at her and started to talk about how "big" he was. He then took her to a room and showed her a picture of his genital on his phone before exiting.

The 37-year-old female patient contacted police after she returned home.

The 36-year-old technician is facing a charge of sexual battery, according to a police press release. Wright, who lives in Goodlettsville, was arrested Saturday and posted a $5,000 bond.

During the investigation, Wright told police that he went to high school with the victim, although she said she does not remember him. Skyline has suspended Wright from working at the hospital.

Skyline Hospital released a statement regarding the incident: "The health, safety and welfare of our patients is always a top priority and abuse of any kind will not be tolerated. When we were made aware of this disturbing allegation, we immediately suspended the employee and began our own internal review.  In addition, we are assisting authorities with their investigation."
