Terry Crews reports sexual assault by ‘Hollywood honcho’ to LAPD: Sources

A month after revealing that he was groped by a top Hollywood executive, Terry Crews reported the alleged incident to the Los Angeles Police Department.

LAPD Officer Drake Madison confirmed to Los Angeles Times Thursday morning that Crews, 49, “is listed as the victim” in a police report but declined to elaborate on what’s in the filing or when it was made.

TMZ reportedly spotted the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star exiting the Los Angeles police station on Wednesday, where he told the tabloid that he also planned to file a civil suit against the person who allegedly groped him.

In a series of tweets, Crews recounted how a Hollywood executive grabbed his genitals during an industry function last year. Crews tweeted that he and his wife, who witnessed the ordeal, stared at the man in shock while he “just grinned like a jerk.”

Crews said he left the event and alerted everyone the executive knew about the incident. The actor said that he called him the following day and apologized but that he never explained why he did it.

“I decided not 2 take it further becuz I didn’t want 2b ostracized— par 4 the course when the predator has power n influence,” he wrote on October 10. “I let it go. And I understand why many women who this happens to let it go.”

Crews went on to tweet that he is telling his story to prove that Harvey Weinstein isn’t the only person acting inappropriately in Hollywood.

“Hopefully, me coming forward with my story will deter a predator and encourage someone who feels hopeless.”

The Hollywood Reporter also learned Thursday that Crews parted ways with WME, the agency that represented him. The news comes days after the tabloid identified Adam Venit, an agent at WME, as the “high-level Hollywood executive” mentioned in Crews’ tweetstorm.

Multiple reports indicated that Venit also gave people wedgies at the same event as a “prank,” according to TMZ.

Venit went on leave last Friday as the agency investigated Crews’ claims. THR noted that the executive didn’t represent Crews.
