NEW YORK (REUTERS) - A New York-based Goldman Sachs managing director was arrested and charged with raping a 20-year-old woman while on vacation in the up-market Hamptons resort in New York state.

The East Hampton Town Police arrested Jason Lee, 37, after responding to a disturbance at a house, the local police service said in a statement.

Lee was arrested on a charge of first-degree rape and was released on bail on Wednesday, the statement said.

The police did not name his employer, but his role at Goldman Sachs' New York office was confirmed to the New York Times by his lawyer Edward Burke Jr, who said Lee "adamantly denies the allegations."
