Kevin Spacey's 18-year-old sexual assault accuser recorded incident and sent it to his girlfriend
The 59-year-old actor is is due to be formally charged with "indecent assault and battery on a person over 14 years of age" on January 7.
The man who has accused actor Kevin Spacey of sexual assault has stated in court filings that he has video evidence that the multiple Academy Award-winner inappropriately touched him numerous times.
William Little, who was 18-years-old at the time he ran into Spacey at a seaside restaurant in Boston in July 2016 and got drunk with him, reportedly informed police he had sent messages, including a video, to his girlfriend via Snapchat on the day of the incident.
According to the Daily Mail, Little, the son of US news anchor Heather Unruh, was working as a bus boy for the summer at the Club Car restaurant in Nantucket when the sexual assault took place. Court documents written by trooper Gerald F Donovan state that after meeting Spacey and lying to him that his age was 23 — the legal age for drinking in Massachusetts is 21 — the pair had several drinks together.
They first had four or five beers each before Spacey suggested they should switch to whiskey and "get drunk," the filings said.
Little reportedly kept talking to the 59-year-old about his girlfriend, prompting the actor to ask him to stop texting her. Spacey then abruptly began to talk about the size of his penis, Donovon wrote, resulting in Little being dumbstruck and unable to respond.
The actor then invited Little back to his place, along with some other friends but the then-18-year-old declined, fearing that Spacey was trying to seduce him. However, he continued to hang out with the 'House of Cards' star in the hope he could get a picture he could then post on his Instagram page.
"Will only lingered around because he wanted a picture with Spacey, something for Instagram," the filing said. "Spacey had told him, if you come back with me, I will take a picture with you."
It was here that the actor allegedly started molesting Little, repeatedly reaching out and putting his hands down the victim's pants.
"Will tried to shift away with his body and move Spacey's hands away with his hands but Spacey kept reaching down his pants," the filing read. "Will said his girlfriend did not believe him so that's when he Snapchatted the video."
Little eventually decided to make his escape after a woman at the bar saw he was "in distress" and advised him to leave. The documents say when Little returned to work the next day, he informed the owner of the bar about what had happened the previous night.
It also stated that the police had retrieved footage of the night from the bar and shown it to Little, who confirmed it showed him and Spacey together.
The Mail reported that Spacey is due to be formally charged with "indecent assault and battery on a person over 14 years of age" on January 7 in Nantucket. If convicted of the charge, he could face up to five years in prison.
On the same day it was announced that the actor would be formally arraigned on the felony sex assault charge, he released a bizarre video titled 'Let Me Be Frank' where he appears to be speaking in the character of Frank Underwood, the diabolical and Machiavelian president he portrayed on 'House of Cards.'
He seems to address the most recent charges but comes across as dismissive, saying, "If I didn't pay the price for the things we both know I did do, I'm certainly not gonna pay the price for the things I didn't do," adding, "I feel surprisingly good and my confidence grows each day that soon enough you will know the full truth."
Spacey, one of the finest actors of his generation, has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen men in the United States and Britain. While around 30 men have made public allegations about the actor, no formal charges have been filed, even as police in LA and London are investigating allegations of sexual assault, including rape.
