Tom Wopat aka Luke Duke from the iconic 1970s homoerotic sausage fest The Dukes of Hazard (he was the sliiiiiightly less attractive one) has been arrested for indecent assault and battery in Massachusetts.
Wopat was starring in a local production of 42nd Street in Waltham, Mass, when he allegedly put his hands down the pants of a woman connected with the production.
According to law enforcement … police arrested 65-year-old Wopat Wednesday at 10:53 PM. Police were actively looking for him, and pulled him over in his Ford Bronco. We’re told cops found a small baggie of cocaine on him, and he was booked for possession.
The indecent assault and battery is a felony. The coke possession is a misdemeanor. Wopat’s being arraigned Thursday.
No word yet from Wopat’s rep, although the theater says he WILL be performing in this afternoon’s matinee. I can only imagine he’ll get a somewhat chilly reception from the Massachusetts theatergoers, who probably frown on coked-up Hollywood types groping the local production assistants.
UPDATE: TMZ headline: “Tom Wopat Charged with Sticking Finger Up Woman’s Butt Crack”
Tom Wopat allegedly grabbed a woman’s butt and put his finger between her butt cheeks, and that’s why he was arrested for felony indecent assault.
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Wopat was rehearsing his show, “42nd Street,” at the Reagle Theatre in Waltham, MA on July 23 when a woman on the set claims he walked behind her and she felt his hand grab her butt. She also says she felt his fingers go between her butt cheeks.
She complained to one of the honchos about the incident, and Wopat was confronted. According to the police report, he denied touching the woman and said, “F*** them all.”
There are 2 other incidents mentioned in the police report, both occurring during rehearsals. In one case a woman says he came up from behind her and wrapped his arm around her hip and lower waist, pulling her into him. In another instance a woman says he peeled sunburned skin off her arm.
Wopat told cops he flirts and likes to be friendly, but never did anything untoward.
As for the drug charge, cops say when they booked Wopat they found a plastic bag containing what they believe was cocaine in his front pocket, along with a blue straw. Cops say they searched Wopat’s vehicle and found baggies inside, one of which contained what they believe is also cocaine.
The police report also says one of the honchos in the show reprimanded Wopat for showing up to rehearsal under the influence
