LAPD probes sexual assault allegation against Steven Seagal

The Los Angeles Police Department is probing sexual misconduct allegations against actor Steven Seagal following numerous claims from women including actress Jenny McCarthy. 

The Wrap revealed the investigation on Friday. 


McCarthy said in November on SiriusXM that Seagal attempted to make her undress during an audition for a movie in 1995, even though nudity was not included in the script. 

Seagal has denied McCarthy's claim. 

Inside Edition correspondent Lisa Guerrero also accused the actor of sexual misconduct in October. Portia de Rossi and Julianna Margulies are among the additional actresses who have come forward making similar allegations since then.

The entertainment industry was rocked last year by a slew of accusations against major figures in Hollywood such as Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. 

Weinstein and Spacey were both booted from a series of projects after the allegations surfaced. 

Actresses and actors donned black the Golden Globes on Sunday as apart of the "Time's Up" movement aimed at addressing misconduct and gender discrimination in the workplace.
