Tom Wopat, one of the Dukes in the Dukes of Hazzard, the 1980s TV comedy about good ol' boys eluding the law, was arraigned Thursday on charges he groped a female cast member of the stage musical he was supposed to open in later Thursday.
Wopat pleaded not guilty to indecent assault and battery and drug possession charges in Waltham, Mass., west of Boston, according to the Middlesex County District Attorney's office. He was released on $1,000 bail and told to stay away from the woman.
He refused to comment outside court, according to the Associated Press.
