KEVIN SPACEY POSTS VIDEO AFTER PROSECUTOR ANNOUNCES CHARGE

BOSTON (AP) — Kevin Spacey’s representative has not responded to a request for comment about the video Spacey posted following an announcement that he would be arraigned for sexual assault in two weeks. A Massachusetts prosecutor says Spacey is due in court Jan. 7 to face a charge of indecent assault and battery. Former news anchor Heather Unruh (UN’-roo) says Spacey put his hand down the pants of her then-18-year-old son and grabbed his genitals at a restaurant on the island of Nantucket in July 2016. Spacey posted a video in character as Frank Underwood from “House of Cards” after staying off social media for more than a year. The character was killed off after Spacey was accused of other sexual misconduct. Spacey says in the video people have been waiting for him to confess and he won’t pay the price for the thing he didn’t do. It’s unclear if Spacey is referring to the charge. Spacey faces up to five years in prison if convicted.

EX-‘TEEN MOM 2’ STAR FACES CHARGES OVER TRUCK TOWING

WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) — Police in North Carolina say they’re planning to charge a man formerly featured on “Teen Mom 2” for towing someone else’s truck out of a parking space without permission. News outlets report Wilmington police initially announced Friday there was “no legal avenue to pursue charges” against David Eason, but that changed when the truck’s owner filed a complaint. Terry Hill told WECT-TV he was legally parked behind Eason’s truck and boat. He pressed charges after deciding “somebody has got to stop” Eason after reading reports about him. Eason is married to “Teen Mom 2″ star Jenelle Evans. MTV fired him from the show in February for online comments about gay and transgender people. Eason previously told WECT-TV the truck belonged to his friend. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.
