WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) — A former star of the 1980s television show “The Dukes of Hazzard” who’s accused of groping a female cast member of a musical he was supposed to appear in now faces charges he indecently assaulted a 16-year-old girl in Massachusetts.
Court records show Tom Wopat is charged with assaulting the girl and a woman in July while rehearsing for the musical “42nd Street” at the Waltham-based Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston. The Boston Globe reports the charges were made public Tuesday.
A police report says Wopat allegedly hit the girl’s buttocks with his script, saying “nice butt.”
Wopat has pleaded not guilty to groping the woman.
