WALTHAM, Mass. — A noted specialist in the fields of attention deficit disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is facing charges related to the alleged groping of a woman.

Dr. Edward M. Hallowell, who was in Waltham District Court on Monday for a hearing on the charge of indecent assault, is accused of squeezing the buttocks of a makeup artist last October.

Watch NewsCenter 5’s report

Hallowell, a psychiatrist and instructor at Harvard Medical School, was videotaping an interview in Watertown.

The woman, whose name was redacted from the police report, filed the charges about a month after the alleged incident.

She said that Hallowell put his hand on her shoulder and touched her. “He followed my shape and he took his time,” the police report says.

When interviewed, police said he called the incident a “terrible misunderstanding.”

“My client has a long and distinguished record in his field,” said William Crowe, Hallowell’s attorney.

“It was not his intention to offend anyone and he is troubled his actions were perceived in any way as inappropriate. We are confident that Dr. Hallowell will be cleared and this matter will be resolved in his favor,” Crowe said.

Hallowell is the founder Hallowell Center for Cognitive and Emotional Health in Sudbury.
