EVANS, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The owner of a CrossFit gym has been denied bond Tuesday after being charged with molesting a teenage girl who used the facility, according to the Columbia County Clerk of Superior Court.
Scott Paige, 36, was arrested on May 1 after his wife turned him in, according to deputies. Paige is being held in Columbia County jail on a charge of child molestation, according to jail records.

The wife confronted her husband, who tried to stop her from going into their bedroom, and she told him she and the “other woman” had 10 minutes to get out, according to deputies.
The other woman turned out to be 15, deputies said.
Paige had admitted in January to having some relations with the teenager but said he was going to stop because he didn’t want to go to jail, the wife told deputies.
The wife said she found evidence of the two messaging on Instagram after the victim had been working out at the gym at 3865 Oak Drive in Martinez, according to deputies.
She added that her husband had spent a lot of time with the victim and often gave her rides to and from the gym.
