The man who Kevin Spacey allegedly sexually assaulted in 2016 recorded some of the incident on video, according to a criminal complaint from Massachusetts State Police seen by CNN and obtained by The Smoking Gun.
Spacey’s alleged victim says the actor bought him drinks at a Nantucket, Massachusetts, bar and touched him “through the top of [his] pants,” according to the complaint filed in Nantucket District Court, per CNN. The complaint reportedly went on to say the then-18-year-old was working in the restaurant as a busboy that night and falsely told Spacey that he was 23.
The man told police he was texting his girlfriend at the time of the alleged incident but she didn’t believe him, so he sent her a video of Spacey over Snapchat, per the criminal complaint obtained by CNN. The girlfriend reportedly told police that she received texts about the alleged incident and a Snapchat video of Spacey that night.
On Monday, Spacey was charged with indecent assault and battery, per a statement issued by Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe.
As CNN noted, the complaint is similar to a November 2017 allegation from Boston broadcast journalist Heather Unruh that her son was sexually assaulted by Spacey after meeting him on Nantucket in July 2016. Unruh said that her son, who she described as “star struck” during a press conference, falsely claimed to be 21 and was given multiple drinks that night.
“Kevin Spacey bought him drink after drink after drink, and when my son was drunk, Spacey made his move and sexually assaulted him,” Unruh said at the 2017 news conference.
Unruh said that her son did not report the alleged assault at the time “largely because of embarrassment and fear.”
“I want to see Kevin Spacey go to jail,” Unruh said in November 2017. “I want to see Kevin Spacey have the hand of justice come down on him, not just for my son, but for the many others who have yet to speak their truth.”
Spacey’s arraignment has been scheduled for January 7 at a Nantucket District Court.
The same day charges against Spacey were announced, he released a bizarre video to Twitter.
