"We have tens of thousands of working people at the Capitol every day, and that must remain our focus," Hintz wrote.
According to the Journal Sentinel, Appleton police arrested Hintz on Feb. 10 for violating a city ordinance against "touching/offering to touch sexual parts." He posted $2,667.50 bail.
Appleton police told the AP that the citation came in connection to an ongoing investigation of the Heavenly Touch Massage Parlor in Appleton. In late January, six women were arrested in connection with the investigation.
