Dukes of Hazzard Star Tom Wopat Arrested for Alleged Indecent Assault and Cocaine Possession

Actor Tom Wopat arrived at the 62nd Annual Tony Awards in NY in June 2008. According to TMZ, he's also been charged with indecent assault and battery, which is considered a felony.

"Dukes of Hazzard" star Tom Wopat was arrested and charged Wednesday night in MA for indecent assault and cocaine possession.

The actor was taken into custody in Waltham, Mass. on Wednesday, Aug. 2, 2017.

The alleged incident involved Wopat putting his hands down a woman's trousers, TMZ wrote.

Tom Wopat was released on $1,000 bail and was told to stay away from the woman after denying indecent assault and battery and drug possession charges. She said he made other female cast members feel uncomfortable too, police said.

Police arrested Wolpat at 10:53 PM last night. He did not comment upon leaving court.

According to TMZ, the 65-year-old theater vet is starring in a production of 42nd Street in Waltham, Massachusetts, and grabbed the butt of a woman involved in the play.

Police were actively looking for Wopat Wednesday night and pulled him over in his Ford Bronco.

The drug charge stemmed from police finding what they believed was cocaine in a plastic back in Tom's front pocket, along with a blue straw, and another bag of the drug in his auto.
