NYPD Is Prepared To Make An Arrest On Weinstein
A police official says that the department is ready to arrest Harvey Weinstein for sexually assaulting Lucia Evans.
The NYPD is reportedly ready and prepared to make an arrest on Harvey Weinstein for felony sexual assault, pending a decision from the Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.
On Tuesday, NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce told the press that the investigation into the sexual assault allegations against the disgraced Hollywood producer was going “very, very well.” When pressed on what the next step would be for the department, Boyce directed further inquiries to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.
Later that same day a police official with “direct knowledge of the case” told The Daily Beast that the department is “ready to go with an arrest.”
The NYPD has been investigating five separate sexual assault claims against Weinstein over the past few months, and they’ve concluded that at least one of them warrants an arrest. Read more at TGP.
