Harvey Weinstein arrested in NYC
May 25, 2018 by Ian Evans
Harvey Weinstein turned himself in to police in New York City. The disgraced movie mogul may be used to walking the red carpet, but today he found himself doing the perp walk in front of the press. He was arrested on three felony charges of rape and criminal sex acts after an investigation into the accusations of multiple women. Today’s charges were based on events surrounding two of those women one of whom, Lucia Evans, was identified today.
Weinstein, who pleaded not guilty, was released after posting $1 million bail. He was required to surrender his passport and wear a monitoring device on his ankle. Today’s events are probably just the tip of the iceberg for Weinstein, as more than 80 women have accused him of sexual misconduct.
