{Hollywood Headlines} Tom Wopat: “Luke Duke” Arrested for Assault

Dukes of Hazzard star Tom Wopat was arrested and charged with assault and battery yesterday (Wednesday).

As Luke Duke on the hit ’80s show, Wopat routinely evaded police — particularly Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane — but he couldn’t avoid cops in Waltham, Massachusetts. Wopat is starring in a production of 42nd Street and allegedly put his hands down a female cast member’s pants. He was later arrested at a house where officers also discovered a small amount of cocaine.

Wopat was charged with indecent assault and battery, as well as drug possession. The show is scheduled to debut tonight. (TMZ)
