Dukes of Hazzard star 'indecently assaulted teen'

By Staff Reporter

A star of 1980s TV show The Dukes Of Hazzard, who is accused of groping a female cast member of a musical he was supposed to appear in, now faces a charge of indecently assaulting a 16-year-old girl in Massachusetts.

Court records show Tom Wopat is charged with assaulting the girl and a woman in July while rehearsing for the show 42nd Street at the Waltham-based Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston.

A police report says Wopat allegedly hit the girl's buttocks with his script, saying: "Nice butt." Wopat, who played Luke Duke in The Dukes Of Hazzard, has pleaded not guilty to groping the woman.
