Kevin Spacey Sexual Assault: There’s a Video!
Kevin Spacey recently got mocked for one video.
But he may soon go to jail for another.
As previously reported in disturbing detail, Spacey has been charged with felony sexual assault.
Yes, felony sexual assault.
This development has taken place just over a year since Netflix fired the Oscar winner from House of Cards due to other complaints it had received about his behavior on set, along with an accusation of sexual misconduct against Spacey from several years ago.
This new charge, however, stems from an alleged incident in 2016 during which an 18-year old aspiring actor says Spacey groped him at a Nantucket bar.
In response to the allegation, Spacey got extra weird and creepy by posting the footage below…
… of himself broadly refusing the claim while pretending to be his House of Cards character Frank Underwood:
Now, however, police say they have a Snapchat video of the interaction between Spacey and his alleged victim, courtesy of the victim filming what transpired back in the day.
The victim was working as a busboy at the Club Car establishment at the time and told Spacey he was 23 and studying business at Wake Forest, according to a criminal complaint filed in Nantucket District Court.
A short while after meeting, he says Spacey bought him a number of alcoholic drinks.
He also says Spacey bragged to him about the size of his penis — and then attempted to get the busboy to go back to his house afterward.
Later this same evening, standing near a piano together, the teenager details how Spacey unzipped his pants and rubbed his penis for about three minutes.
TMZ reports that Spacey’s lawyers are arguing that prosecutors should be barred from pursing charges because the busboy did not report the incident to authorities the night it happened.
The attorneys say he wasn’t interviewed in person for more than a year.
Spacey’s legal team also states that the victim was drunk and may have blacked out and didn’t object during the three minutes of groping.
“That’s an incredibly long time to have a strange man’s hands in your pants, correct?” one of the actor’s lawyers said to a judge in court last week.
Per his legal complaint, though, the victim says he was afraid to report the incident because he was underage and had been drinking.
He also says he did try to shift his body away from Spacey, inside of a very crowded bar… but the actor continued to reach down his pants.
The updated part of this story is that the alleged victim sent his girlfriend a Snapchat video during the encounter.
However, Spacey’s attorney says all it shows is someone’s hand touching another person’s shirt, not any sort of illegal or unwanted groping.
After this touching took place, Spacey got up to go to the bathroom; the busboy left the bar.
While on his way home, Spacey texted him, “I think we lost each other,” and the busboy did not respond, the complaint reads.
For the record, and for whatever it is worth, allegations in the complaint match those of Heather Unruh, a former TV news anchor in Boston who said at a press conference last year that her son had been sexually assaulted by the star.
Spacey faces a charge of indecent assault and battery, Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe said on Monday.
He is scheduled to be arraigned on January 7.
No matter the outcome, his career is very much over.
