CLARKSVILLE, Md., Sept. 13 (UPI) -- A former Olympic ice dancer was released on bail after being arrested for fondling a young female student in Lake Placid, N.Y.

Genrikh Sretenski, 50, who was born in Russia and now lives in Clarksville, Md., has been charged with sexual abuse after the father of one of his students said Sretenski touched his daughter and sent her unwanted text messages.

The family has also filed a lawsuit seeking $5 million in damages from the world-class ice dancer.

Sretenski was arrested by Maryland authorities at his home last week on a warrant from New York. As a condition of his release, Sretenski was forced to surrender his passport, the deed to his house and, on Tuesday, put up $10,000 bail, The Baltimore Sun reported.

Sretenski's lawyer said his client is innocent.
