The 59-year-old star of the ‘House of Cards’ series, who has won two Oscars, is due to be formally charged on January 7 on the island of Nantucket with "indecent assault and battery on a person over 14 years of age."

On what unfolded between the two, William, after meeting the actor and telling him he was 23 years old -- the legal drinking age is 21 in Massachusetts -- he started drinking first beer and then whiskey with him. Kevin then allegedly invited the man to his place. William declined the invite but lingered to get a picture with the actor for his Instagram. 

According to the report filed: "Spacey had told him, if you come back with me, I will take a picture with you." After this, Kevin began sexually molesting the young man, the filed charges said.

"Will tried to shift away with his body and move Spacey's hands away with his hands but Spacey kept reaching down his pants," it said.

"Will said his girlfriend did not believe him so that's when he Snapchatted the video," it said.

He then left the bar on the advice of a woman who reportedly saw "he was in distress." He returned to work the next day and informed the owner of the bar of the incident, the court documents said.

Kevin Spacey was considered one of the best actors of his time before his career nosedived after these sexual assault charges. The first report of alleged abuse came from actor Anthony Rapp, who claimed that the older actor sexually abused him when Rapp was 14, in 1986.

Kevin hasnt responded to these accusations but did post a bizarre video. Watch it here.
