Dukes Of Hazzard star Tom Wopat accused of groping girl, 16

A former star of the 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 musical 42nd Street at the Waltham-based Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston.

The Boston Globe said the charges were made public Tuesday.

A police report says Wopat allegedly hit the girl's buttocks with his script, saying: "Nice butt."

Wopat, who has pleaded not guilty to groping the woman, played Luke Duke in the The Dukes Of Hazzard.
