WABC said Frieden surrendered to face charges that he grabbed the buttocks of a woman he knew in his home last October. He was released on his own recognizance.

Frieden is next due in court on October 11, according to court staff. Brevetti, reached by telephone, declined further comment. The woman reported the incident in July, police said.

The two have known each other for several years, the official said. Helen Peterson, a spokeswoman for the Brooklyn district attorney's office, said he will be charged with third-degree sex abuse, forcible touching and harassment.

After leaving the CDC in 2017, Frieden launched Resolve to Save Lives, a $225 million, 5-year initiative that "aims to save millions of lives from cardiovascular disease and make the world safer from epidemics" and is funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He came in at a time of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic and would see the agency through the Ebola crisis in 2014.
