The allegations against the actor claim he sexually assaulted the teenage son of a Boston television anchor in a Nantucket restaurant.

Former news anchor Heather Unruh came forward in November 2017, saying the actor stuck his hand down her then-18-year-old son’s pants and grabbed his genitals at the Club Car Restaurant in July 2016.
