Kevin Spacey’s Accuser Says He Filmed Alleged Attack on Snapchat

Spacey is facing a count of indecent assault on a person over the age of 14 for allegedly groping the teenage son of former WCVB news anchor Heather Unruh at a Nantucket bar in 2016.

An audio recording of a court hearing obtained by the Globe provides insight into how actor Kevin Spacey's attorneys plan to defend him against claims he sexually assaulted an 18-year-old man at a Nantucket bar in 2016.

A police report of an alleged assault by Kevin Spacey on a teenager states that there was video evidence of the incident recorded on Snapchat.

Kevin Spacey is turning heads after the actor posted a controversial video in character as the devious President Frank Underwood from the Netflix series "House of Cards" as he was hit with a criminal charge for an alleged sexual assault. "And you trusted me even though you knew you shouldn't", Spacey, wearing an apron with Santa Claus figures on it, said in the video.

Reps for Spacey have not responded to requests for comment.

Unruh's teen son reported the assault to Nantucket Police on October 31, 2016 with the investigation moving forward on November 22, 2017 after the victim spoke with Massachusetts State Police.

He said that he told his younger sister what happened when he got home. Harry Dreyfuss, the son of actor Richard Dreyfuss, has accused Spacey of groping him when he was 18 years old. The suspect, who lied to Spacey about his age, saying he was 23, said the two-time Oscar victor also bragged about the size of his penis.

He also said, "I can promise you this".

Spacey was considered one of the finest actors of his generation but his career nosedived following allegations of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen men in the United States and Britain. The video was called Let Me Be Frank, apparently a reference to Frank Underwood, the ruthless U.S. politician he played in the Netflix series House of Cards. "If I didn't pay the price for the things we both know I did do, I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the things I didn't do".

But the line between Spacey and the character remained fuzzy, as he eviscerated those who wished to see him confess and lambasted others who rushed to judgment without facts. He went on to say he was examining himself and now chooses "to [openly] live as a gay man".

"Miss me?" Spacey's character in Netflix's "House of Cards" was killed off for the sixth and final season after he was sacked from the political drama.
