'Dukes of Hazzard' star Tom Wopat arrested for indecent assault, battery

Tom Wopat, one of the Dukes in the Dukes of Hazzard, the 1980s TV comedy about good ol' boys eluding the law, finds himself under arrest and charged with indecent assault and battery and drug charges in Massachusetts.

Scheduled to be arraigned on the charges on Thursday, hours before he is scheduled to open in a production of 42nd Street in Waltham on Thursday night. 

A statement from the Waltham, Mass., Police Department said Wopat, 65, was arrested in his car on a warrant late Wednesday. The warrant involved a charge of "indecent assault and battery on a person over 14." 

The police statement said "two bags of white powder believed to be cocaine" were found in the car so a drugs possession charge was added. 

Police did not provide details of who accused Wopat and what the accusation entailed.
