Tom Wopat was arrested for cocaine and indecent assault Wednesday

Dukes of Hazzard Star Tom Wopat Arrested for Alleged Indecent Assault and Cocaine Possession

Law enforcement arrested Wopat Wednesday just before 1 p.m.

TMZ reports that Tom Wopat-best known for playing Luke Duke on Dukes of Hazzard-allegedly assaulted a woman, reportedly placing his hands in her trousers. He did not comment upon leaving court.

A statement from the Waltham, Mass., Police Department said Wopat, 65, was arrested in his vehicle on a warrant late Wednesday. The victim is also involved with the production. She said he made other female cast members feel uncomfortable too, police said. After actively searching for the actor, police pulled over Wopat who was in his Ford Bronco and then placed him under arrest.

Wopat apparently denied the accusations and angrily stormed out, after which police were called.

Wopat was in Waltham, Massachusetts at the time, as he's starring in a play called 42nd Street. When they found him Wednesday night, he had a small bag of what they believe to be cocaine on his person, and more in his truck. He said he flirts but did "nothing that could be considered inappropriate".

Wopat has worked steadily on stage and screen since the "Dukes of Hazzard", including a role in the A&E drama "Longmire".

The actor and singer has starred in numerous Broadway productions, receiving Tony nominations for his roles in "Annie, Get Your Gun" and "A Catered Affair".
