REPORT: NYPD Ready To ARREST Disgraced Hollywood Producer Harvey Weinstein
The New York Police Department is ready to arrest disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, reports the Daily Beast.
The NYPD is prepared to collar Harvey Weinstein for felony sexual assault, a police official with direct knowledge of the case told The Daily Beast.
“We’re ready to go with an arrest,” the official said yesterday afternoon.
The NYPD is awaiting only a nod from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.
Earlier in the day, Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce was asked during a wide ranging press availability about the investigation into sexual assault allegations against Weinstein. Boyce replied that the detectives are still gathering evidence in the case and, “It is going very, very well.”
Last November, the Los Angeles Times reported that the NYPD was probing “credible” rape allegations against Weinstein.
Boardwalk Empire actress Paz de la Huerta accused Weinstein of “raping her twice in her apartment.”
On October 5th, The New York Times blew the roof off of the decades-long ‘open secret’ in Hollywood that Harvey Weinstein was essentially a sexual predator who preyed on young starlets.
Weinstein reportedly paid off several sexual harassment accusers over the years.
A tsunami of women have since come forward with their horror stories of sexual harassment and sexual abuse by Harvey Weinstein, including A-listers Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.
