BOISE -- A former top executive from Meridian-based is in legal trouble.

Former corporate financial officer Michael McClane is accused of injuring two female employees on a company rafting trip near Stanley in August.

McClane is charged with two counts of misdemeanor battery stemming from the incident.

According to court documents obtained by KTVB -- two women reported to police that McClane touched, pushed, grabbed, pinched and shook them on a bus ride.
