(WXYZ) — The Michigan Attorney General's Office executed search warrants at Twistars and the home of former Olympic gymnastics coach John Geddert.

The search warrants were executed as part of the office's investigation of Geddert, who worked closely with Larry Nassar. Twistars is also a place where many Nassar victims were abused.

In February 2018, the Eaton County Sheriff's Office said it was investigating as people had come forward with complaints about Geddert.

Some of the young athletes who confronted Nassar in court said Geddert was physically abusive. One alleged Geddert was aware in the late 1990s that Nassar had performed an "inappropriate procedure" on her when she was 16.
