Modesto Assemblywoman’s Husband Accused Of Grabbing 4-Year-Old At Soccer Game

MODESTO (CBS13) — The husband of a Modesto Assemblywoman is accused of mistreating a child during an apparent fight at a soccer field.

“There was an allegation that a parent touched a child on the field,” said Frank Cousineau with the Modesto Youth Soccer Association.

That accused parent is 44-year-old Rodney Olsen, the husband of Assemblywoman Kristen Olsen (R-Modesto).

Modesto Police say that Rodney Olsen hurt and emotionally traumatized a child during an August youth soccer game. The police wouldn’t elaborate as to how it allegedly happened.

Reports say that Rodney Olsen became angry at a 4-year-old and is accused of grabbing a child’s arm.

The league began its own investigation and within a few weeks, Modesto Police focused on the Assemblywoman’s husband as a suspect.

“We just believe it was taken out of our hands,” Cousineau said.
