Christian Slater arrested in NYC for groping...

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: May 31, 2005
Filed at 8:36 a.m. ET

NEW YORK (AP) -- Actor Christian Slater was arrested early Tuesday for allegedly groping a woman on a Manhattan street, police said.
Slater, 35, was accused of touching the woman's buttocks near 93rd Street and Third Avenue on the Upper East Side around 1:50 a.m., said a police spokesman, Detective John Sweeney.
The woman, who was not identified, flagged down police to report the incident, Sweeney said. Slater was found nearby and the woman identified him as the man who groped her.
Slater, who's appearing on Broadway in ''The Glass Menagerie,'' was arrested on a charge of third-degree sexual abuse. He was expected Tuesday in Manhattan Criminal Court.
Slater starred in the 1980s classic ''Heathers,'' as well as ''True Romance,'' and ''Untamed Heart'' in the 1990s.
In August 1997, he was arrested after he allegedly bit a man in the stomach and threw a police officer against a wall during a rowdy party in Los Angeles. The actor later pleaded no contest to the charges and served 90 days in jail.
He filed for divorce earlier this year from television producer Ryan Haddon. In 2003, Haddon was accused of hitting him with a drinking glass during a fight in their Las Vegas hotel room. She was jailed briefly but no charges were filed.


Sad, if this is true.

You can be arrested for grabbing somebody's butt?

This and "Alone in the Dark" confirms it. He's trying to flush his career down the toilet.

Ah, this won't effect his career one bit even if it's true. Or is it affect? I can never keep that straight.

Affect.

"This won't affect his career one bit."

or

"The effect this will have on his career will be minimal."

He's staring in The Glass Menagerie? I always liked that play, maybe I'll check it out. I've always liked Christian Slater.

Ha. He gets arrested for groping and I want to see a play that I ordnarily would never have heard about if it weren't for this. Guess there really is no bad press.

M girlfriend & one of my friends & I were at a Starbucks on Broadway last Sunday & after we turned around after placing our order about 3 people back on line was Christian Slater. He was extremely nice we all got our picture with him & he took pictures with a few other people.

If he grabbed my girlfriend's butt I'd have no problem with it. He is the man in True Romance.

Well, it did just say "appearing in", not "starring in". Maybe he's playing "Man #3"?

That Bugs Bunny cartoon just popped into my head: "Oh, we're the boys of the chorus, we hope you like the show, we know you're rooting for us, but now we have to go..."

Apparently he was pretty intoxicated/high at the time, so the inhibitions go right out the window.

This is the same guy who once tried to bring a loaded gun inside an airplane AND thought KUFFS was a good idea.

He's capable of anything.

A gentleman caller was arrested Tuesday for sexually molesting a young woman in New York. According to on-lookers, the victim, on hiatus from her zoological studies, was confronted by the alleged perpetrator on the sidewalk. The attacker allegedly uttered before the incident, "a nice little clump is what you have." A "clump" is reportedly street slang for the female buttocks.

IIRC, theres only like 4 total roles in the play. So I think he's going to have a good junk of stage time.

Didn't Slater get in trouble for biting someone in the stomach a few years back? Heck, if all he's doing now is grabbing ass, I'd say the rehab is working.

Why? It's a form of assault or even sexual battery if the person didn't give permission to be grabbed. I remember hearing a story about a guy who was in a store with with female friend. Well he came up behind, who he thought was this woman, and grabbed her ass playfully. Imagine his shock and horror when the woman turned and he realized it was the wrong woman. He got arrested and I think, I can't remember, but I think he had to register as a sex offender. Harsh but true.


I wonder if Slater will have to register?

Another Butt grab story

Ok, well even if you think someone should be arrested for touching a woman's butt, I'm assuming this wasn't caught on camera or anything.

It IS ridiculous.

I bet you if it was the woman who grabbed Christian Slater's ass it would have been laughed off by everyone.

Well sure. What man, who isn't gay, doesn't want his ass grabbed by a chick and what man would go get a cop if it happened? I know I wouldn't...unless she took my wallet of course. However, chicks are far less cool about this kinda thing and there are laws against it so what are you gonna do? How would like it if your wife's ass was grabbed by some stupid star who probably thought he could simply because of who he is?

I work in Radio and a Dj chick I know had her ass grabbed by a famous Rock Star who's known for his "Attention to women". She didn't go get the cops and although she was pissed when it happened she now laughs about it. But again, not all women can find the humor in unsolicited ass grabs.

Angry Slater Protests His Innocence

Movie star Christian Slater is desperate to fight sexual assault charges in New York, insisting he plans to sue police who arrested him. The Heathers star was arrested early yesterday after allegedly feeling a woman's bottom in a New York street, while intoxicated. He grumbled, "This is bulls**t," as police escorted him to court in front of TV cameras, and told reporters he was considering legal action once the incident had been cleared up. In a statement, Slater's publicist said, "We believe this situation is the result of a misunderstanding and we are hopeful that this will be resolved shortly." Slater was booked on two sexual misconduct charges and released from police custody. He's due to appear in court again on June 14. The arrest is not expected to affect Slater's current run in hit Broadway, New York play The Glass Menagerie.
