Spacey, an Oscar-winner, denies groping an 18-year-old in a restaurant in Nantucket, Massachusetts in 2016.

Kevin Spacey forged ahead with his slow-motion public meltdown on Sunday, and he made sure he was dressed appropriately for the occasion.

Boston - A MA prosecutor said on Monday that Kevin Spacey is scheduled to be arraigned next month on a charge of indecent assault and battery on allegations he sexually assaulted the teenage son of a Boston television anchor in a Nantucket restaurant.

Neither Spacey nor his lawyers have addressed the allegation publicly, but the actor released a video last week in the voice of Frank Underwood, his character on Netflix's "House of Cards" in which he said, "I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the thing I didn't do".

Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp came forward a year ago with allegations the Netflix star made unwanted sexual advances against him as a teenager.
