AceShowbiz - Kevin Spacey has got into another trouble with the law, just hours after he attended the arraignment hearing for sexual assault case. The disgraced actor was pulled over for speeding in Washington, D.C. on Monday, January 7.
The "House of Cards" alum was behind the wheel, with his attorney sitting next to him in a black SUV as he was on his way home from Reagan National Airport. In a video obtained by TMZ, officers are seen talking to him, asking him to show his license.
The officers remained mum when asked if they gave Spacey a ticket. Instead, the cops warned the photographer for pulling over on the road to record the moment on camera. Law enforcement sources tell the site that the 59-year-old star got off without a ticket and was let go with only a verbal warning.
Spacey appeared in Nantucket District Court, Massachusetts on Monday morning to face allegations he groped a teenager back in 2016. He seemed to be in good spirits, smiling as he made his way into court and throughout the proceedings, but he never spoke.
He entered a not guilty plea and agreed not to have any contact with the alleged victim, who is the son of ex-reporter Heather Unruh. Judge Thomas Barrett scheduled a pre-trial hearing for March 4, assuring "The Usual Suspects" star he didn't need to show up in person.
Unruh went public with the accusations in November 2017, when she staged a press conference detailing the alleged incident. She admitted that her son was lying about being 21 as he had yet to reach the legal drinking age, but accused Spacey of plying her kid with alcohol and then allegedly groping his genitals without consent.
Spacey was formally charged with indecent assault and battery for the alleged attack on the then 18-year-old boy in December 2018. He released a bizarre video to deny the allegations, saying as his "House of Cards" character Frank Underwood, "I know you what you want. You want me back." He added, "Of course, some believed everything and have just been waiting with bated breath to hear me confess it all. They're just dying to have me declare that everything said is true and what I got what I deserved... But you wouldn't believe the worst without evidence, would you? You wouldn't rush to judgments without facts, would you?"
