Tom Wopat, the actor best known for portraying Luke Duke in the Dukes of Hazzard TV series, faces charges in Massachusetts, where authorities allege he indecently assaulted a 16-year-old actress, according to multiple reports.

The 66-year-old actor — who had been previously accused of groping an adult female cast member of a musical he was supposed to appear in — allegedly told the teenager he is “a creepy old man” and made a comment about her anatomy.

The Boston Globe, citing court documents, reports that Wopat allegedly told the teen she has a “nice butt” before noting, “You’re really talented and really cute.”

Wopat had been hired to star in a production of 42nd Street in the town of Waltham, but had to bow out after pleading not guilty to earlier allegations that he groped an adult female cast member. Authorities allege he put his hands down the pants of a woman connected with the show.
