Kevin Spacey’s Accuser Filmed the Encounter on Snapchat, Police Report Says

Kevin Spacey’s Accuser Filmed the Encounter on Snapchat, Police Report Says

The video was posted as news broke that Spacey will be arraigned on a charge of indecent assault and battery at Nantucket District Court in MA on January 7.

The Snapchat video allegedly shows Spacey, 59, groping the front of the then-18-year-old victim's trousers, states a Massachusetts State Police report in the court filings.

The felony sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey will include video evidence showing he attacked a young man at a bar in Nantucket in July 2016, according to a police report.

According to the Boston Globe, which obtained an audio recording of a December 20 court hearing, Spacey's attorney Alan Jackson said the video shows someone's hand touching another person's shirt, but not anyone being groped.

Kevin Spacey released a unusual video about the sexual assault and harassment accusations against him as he is set to be arraigned.

After the allegations surfaced, fifteen others came forward alleging similar abuse, including journalist Heather Unruh - who alleged that Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted her son.

There is apparently video of actor Kevin Spacey groping a busboy in 2016.

Spacey's lawyer did not respond immediately to an AFP request for comment.

"He did not report the crime at the time, and that was largely because of embarrassment and fear", she said.

On Monday, Mr Spacey posted a video in which he appears to deny any wrongdoing while in character as Frank Underwood from House of Cards. The suspect, who lied to Spacey about his age, saying he was 23, said the two-time Oscar victor also bragged about the size of his penis. When he told Spacey he was from Boston, the actor said he named his dog Boston because he got it at a hospital there after the Boston Marathon bombings.

It's unclear if Spacey is referring to the numerous allegations of past sexual misconduct he has been accused of since October 2017.

His first accuser, actor Anthony Rapp, said Spacey climbed on top of him on a bed when Rapp was 14 and Spacey 26. Spacey also used the statement to disclose he is gay.

'But you wouldn't rush to judgments without facts would you?

"Miss me?" Spacey's character in Netflix's "House of Cards" was killed off for the sixth and final season after he was sacked from the political drama. "Only you and I both know it's never that simple, not in politics and not in life", said the actor in the video, which shows him in the kitchen in a Santa apron. Regardless, he says, viewers "want me back".
