The boy suing actor Kevin Spacey for allegedly sexually assaulting him at a bar in Nantucket in 2016 has video evidence of part of the alleged encounter, according to a report from Massachusetts State Police cited Wednesday by MassLive. The boy claims that after drinking heavily with Spacey at The Club Car bar, the ex-House of Cards actor commented on the size of his penis and asked him to come home with him. The pair then allegedly moved to the bar’s piano, where the boy claims that Spacey began touching the front of his pants, until he eventually unzipped them and touched him without his consent. At that point, the boy said, he took a Snapchat video of the encounter to prove it had occurred, and sent it to his girlfriend.
The alleged video could make the trial more difficult for Spacey’s lawyers, who the Boston Globe reports have been working to poke holes in the boy’s story. Lawyer Alan Jackson reportedly claimed that the video shows a hand touching someone else’s shirt, and nothing more. Spacey also remains under investigation for sexual assault in both Los Angeles and England, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Soon after news of the new charges broke Monday, Spacey released an unsettling video in which he posed as his House of Cards character Frank Underwood, but appeared to be speaking about his own experiences. “But you wouldn’t believe the worst without evidence, would you?” Spacey said in the video. “You wouldn’t rush to judgments without facts, would you? Did you?”
