NEW YORK (Reuters) - Actor Christian Slater was charged on Tuesday with sexual abuse after reportedly groping a woman's buttocks while drunk, police said on Tuesday.
Slater, 35, was arrested at 2:30 a.m. in New York's Upper East Side and he was booked on a misdemeanor sexual abuse, police said. He faces 60 days in jail if convicted.
Slater is currently appearing on Broadway in "The Glass Menagerie" and has had numerous brushes with the law.
The star of the movies "Heathers," "True Romance," and "Untamed Heart" was arrested in 1997 for assaulting his girlfriend and a police officer while intoxicated on cocaine at a Los Angeles party. He was sentenced to 90 days in jail after pleading no contest.
In 1994, he was arrested for bringing a gun on an airplane.
