In another development in the barrage of sexual assault, harassment and rape allegations to rock the entertainment and other industries, MA prosecutors will meet with the son of a former Boston TV news anchor who said Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted the teenage boy at a Nantucket restaurant. Brunton recalled saying, "I don't want to do this", pushing Takei away, and driving himself home. He finally managed to push off Takei and go back to his auto.

The Star Trek actor and gay rights activist George Takei responded on Saturday to an accusation that he sexually assaulted a young actor almost 40 years ago.

The publication also spoke to four of Brunton's friends who said he had told them about the alleged incident years ago.

Brunton's story involved Takei allegedly groping him after he felt "very disoriented and dizzy" from a drink that Takei had given him.

"I managed to get my trousers up and compose myself and I was just shocked".

The next thing I remember I was coming to and he had my trousers down around my ankles and he was groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off and feeling me up at the same time, trying to get his hands down my underwear.

This morning, Takei refuted the account in a series of Tweets.

He added: "I came to and said, "What are you doing? I walked out and went to my auto until I felt well enough to drive home, and that was that", Scott claimed". The claim is the latest in a string to hit Hollywood in the past five weeks since the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke, which was followed by other allegations of sexual misconduct against the likes of actors Kevin Spacey and Jeremy Piven, director Brett Ratner, and most recently, comedian/actor Louie C.K. and Arrowverse producer Andrew Kreisberg.

'This happened a long time ago, but I have never forgotten it, ' he told The Hollywood Reporter. "For Anthony Rapp, he has had to live with the memory of this experience of decades ago".

"Men who improperly harass or assault do not do so because they are gay or straight - that is a deflection", he continued. "They do so because they have the power, and they chose to abuse it".

Scottt alleges the actor then tried to take his underwear off and groped his crotch.

Scott Brunton told his story to THR, saying that it was "one of those stories you tell with a group of people when people are recounting weird instances in their lives, this always comes up".

A spokesman for Takei told the outlet that the actor was not in the U.S. and could not be reached for comment.
