• 'Dukes of Hazzard' star, in Waltham, arraigned on sexual harassment charges

    Updated:

    WALTHAM, Mass. - A former star of "The Dukes of Hazzard" accused of indecently assaulting two female members of a musical is facing a judge in Massachusetts.

    Tom Wopat appeared Friday at Waltham District Court on charges he assaulted a girl and a woman in July while rehearsing for the musical "42nd Street" at the Waltham-based Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston.

    In the hearing, his attorney was granted permission to conduct an investigation at the high school where the production was taking place. 

    A police report says Wopat allegedly hit the girl's buttocks with his script, saying "nice butt." Wopat already has pleaded not guilty to groping the unidentified woman.

    The 66-year-old actor played Luke Duke on the popular 1980s television show. He was supposed to play Julian Marsh in Reagle Music Theatre's production of "42nd Street." He's since been replaced.

    Neither Wopat's attorney nor his publicist has commented on the charges.

    He's due back in court in December.
