Christian Slater held for groping

US actor Christian Slater has been arrested and charged with sexual abuse and forcible touching after a woman accused him of groping her buttocks. Slater, 35, was accused of groping the woman, a stranger, at a small store after he was seen arguing with his girlfriend. Prosecutors say the victim called police and identified the actor, who was arrested shortly after 2:00 am local time, in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

“The victim, a stranger, was at a bodega buying a soda when he grabbed and squeezed her buttocks. His girlfriend yelled ‘Stop. What are you doing?’ The defendant walked away,” assistant district attorney Vanessa Puzio said. — AFP
