US actor Kevin Spacey has been charged with sexually assaulting a teenager at a bar in Massachusetts. He will appear in court on the seventh of January over the incident, which allegedly occurred in Nantucket in July 2016.
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 alleged victim is the son of former television news presenter Heather Unruh, who spoke publicly about the incident last year.
She accused Mr Spacey of buying her then 18-year-old son alcohol and then groping him. The drinking age in Massachusetts is 21.
Mr Spacey said he had no memory of the event but publicly apologized before issuing an “absolute” denial of the other allegations.
