Snapchat video of Spacey allegedly assaulting teen obtained by police

Spacey has been accused of getting an 18-year-old drunk, putting his hand down his underpants and fondling his private parts.

Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe announced Monday that Spacey has been charged with indecent assault and battery after the alleged groping.

At one point, Unruh's son told Spacey he was 23 years old. He then alleges Spacey sexually assaulted him by rubbing his thigh and then unzipping the teen's trousers and touched him without consent, the report revealed.

"The complainant has shown a tremendous amount of courage in coming forward", Mitchell Garabedian, a lawyer for Ms Unruh's son, said in a statement yesterday.

Following the breaking news that Kevin Spacey would face a charge of indecent assault against a teenager, the House of Cards star took to YouTube to post a freakish video, seemingly defending himself against the claims.

She accused Mr Spacey of buying her then 18-year-old son alcohol - the drinking age in MA is 21 - and then groping him.

The teen said he tried to turn away but Spacey kept reaching down his trousers.

During the 36-minute show-cause hearing, Los Angeles-based criminal defense attorney Alan Jackson pointed out that Unruh's son did not report the incident to authorities the night it allegedly happened, or the morning after, and was not interviewed in-person about the incident for more than a year.

Shortly after the Globe first reported Spacey was facing charges, Spacey broke his year-plus long Twitter silence on Monday by sending out a freaky, cryptic video in which he seemed to be portraying his character from the TV series "House of Cards".

The video has racked up 5.1 million views since it was uploaded on Monday.

"I shocked you with my honesty, but mostly I challenged you and made you think".

Now, according to police, there is evidence sufficient to charge the actor. "You want me back", Spacey said in video.

'But you wouldn't rush to judgments without facts would you?

Spacey and his lawyers have not spoken publicly about the case or about whether the Twitter video was related.

"Some believed everything and have just been waiting with bated breath to hear me confess it all", Spacey said in the video. You're smarter than that. Oh, of course they're going to say I'm being disrespectful, not playing by the rules.

In Oct. 2017, actor Anthony Rapp claimed in a BuzzFeed interview that Spacey made sexual advances towards him at a party in 1986 when he was 14 and Spacey was 26. However, "you and I both know it's never that simple, not in politics and not in life", the actor remarked.
