Arrested for Indecent Assault

04 August 2017

Tom Wopat, one of the Dukes in the Dukes of Hazzard, the 1980s TV comedy about good ol' boys eluding the law, finds himself under arrest and charged with indecent assault and battery and drug charges in MA.

Looks like Luke Duke is still stirring up trouble.

Police arrested the 65-year-old actor on a warrant on Wednesday at 10:53 p.m. and also charged him with cocaine possession at the time of the arrest, authorities tell PEOPLE.

On Thursday, Wopat was arraigned and plead not guilty to all charges. They had been searching for him and eventually pulled him over as he was driving in his Ford Bronco.

White House Denies Involvement With Fox News Story at Center of Lawsuit
Fox says it's "completely erroneous" to suggest it pushed the story to distract from the Russian Federation investigation. The AP reports that White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders addressed the issue today at a White House briefing.

The actor denied touching anyone inappropriately, according to court documents.

The victim is reportedly somehow linked to production on "42nd Street", the play Wopat's now starring in.

Police say they found a small baggie of cocaine on him. He said he flirts, and likes to be friendly, but "nothing that could be considered inappropriate".

Wopat has worked steadily on stage and screen since the "Dukes of Hazzard", including a role in the A&E drama "Longmire". He has also appeared in several other television shows and movies, including Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained", and has released country music, Broadway and big band albums. But the theater announced today that a different actor would play the role.
