Dukes of Hazzard actor on indecency charges

Tom Wopat

Waltham (Massachusetts)
The actor who played Luke on the 1980s television show The Dukes of Hazzard has been charged in Massachusetts with groping a female member of the cast of a musical he was supposed to appear in.
Tom Wopat pleaded not guilty overnight to indecent assault and battery and drug charges.
He was released on $US1000 ($1342) bail and told to stay away from the woman. He refused to comment outside court.
Waltham police arrested the 65-year-old Wopat about 11pm on Wednesday. Police say during a search of his vehicle they found a white powder believed to be cocaine.
Wopat was supposed to play Julian Marsh in 42nd Street at the Waltham-based Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston, but the theatre announced overnight a different actor would play the role. AP
