SC doctor faces new charges of fondling patients

GREENVILLE (AP) A South Carolina physician previously accused of fondling patients faces a new set of allegations from two women.

The Greenville News reported Friday that Dr. Titus Daniel Caddell, of Greenville, was charged with first-degree assault and battery in nearby Travelers Rest, where he had a medical practice.

Travelers Rest Police Chief Lance Crowe said the charges were in addition to the three patients who accused Caddell last year of incidents from between 1987 and 2010. In the new charges, Caddell is accused of fondling one patient in 2009 sexually touching another in 2011.

Caddell surrendered to authorities on Thursday and was later released on a personal recognizance bond. Reached at home on Saturday, Caddell declined to comment about his arrest or the pending criminal case against him.
