Michigan law enforcement is investigating complaints made against former Olympic gymnastics coach John Geddert.

Geddert owned Twistars gym, where convicted sexual abuser Dr. Larry Nassar sometimes offered treatments. The nature of the complaints against Geddert has not been revealed.

Geddert was suspended by USA Gymnastics after some women testified during one of Nassar's trials that Geddert had verbally and physically abused gymnasts.

One gymnast said Geddert had told her several times to kill herself.

Some of Nassar's accusers also said Geddert wouldn't allow them to see any other doctor. One said Geddert knew Nassar performed an "inappropriate procedure" on her in the '90s.

A lawyer for Geddert has previously said he had "zero knowledge" of abuse by Nassar.
