New York–The chief of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) was arrested early Sunday for allegedly chasing a hotel employee while in the nude down the hallway of a New York hotel and trying to sexually assault her.
Police say Dominique Strauss-Kahn sexually assaulted a 32-year-old housekeeping worker at Manhattan’s Sofitel Hotel Saturday, May 14.
