The Cherry Hill Police Department in New Jersey stated on Saturday, August 20, that Point Break actor Gary Busey had been arrested on several s*x crimes charges. According to a police news release, these occurrences happened during the annual Monster Mania Convention, which was held at the Doubletree Hotel in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
The report also said that from August 12 to August 14, Cherry Hill PD responded to complaints concerning alleged s*x violations. Busey was detained by investigators on August 19 after a preliminary inquiry. Busey, 78, was said to have attended the Monster Mania Convention. The nature of the s*xual crimes has not yet been revealed.
Charges against Gary Busey outlined
Gary Busey was charged with three forms of s*xual misconduct offenses, according to a news statement issued by the Cherry Hill Police Department on Twitter. The actor was charged with two charges of fourth-degree criminal s*xual contact, one case of attempted fourth-degree criminal s*xual contact, and one count of harassment – disorderly people crime.
According to the official news release:
“Cherry Hill Police responded to the Doubletree Hotel, 2349 West Route 70, during the weekend of the event, August 12th-14th, 2022, for an allegation of an s*x crime. As a consequence of the investigation, Cherry Hill Police Detectives accused Gary Busey, 78, of Malibu, California, on August 19, 2022.”
Gary Busey may face up to thirty days in county prison and penalties if charged with one count of harassment. He might face a no-contact order as well as additional sanctions. There is also the risk that this charge may be upgraded to “simple assault” status after additional investigation, which might result in higher prison terms and penalties.
Meanwhile, Busey faces up to 18 months in jail on two charges of fourth-degree criminal s*xual contact, since such a crime is considered a felony. Because the offense is s*xual in nature, the performer may face further sanctions. If found guilty, the actor will be listed as an s*x offender under Megan’s Law. According to The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall’s description of the case, Gary Busey may face 18 months in prison and a $10,000 fine for the illegal attempt of s*xual contact. Because the illegal attempt included s*xual contact, the fine or other penalties may be increased.
Gary Busey’s history of threatening conduct
While there have been no records of Busey committing any criminal acts, he did cause some controversy in 2008. The actor then allegedly fought with other celebs during group treatment on VH1’s Celebrity Rehab 2. According to the New York Post, Busey had many fights on the program and had to be “physically removed” after one of them. According to the show’s description, Busey was involved with the production as a former drug misuse sufferer who had been sober after treatment.
The episode also revealed that Busey was diagnosed at the time by psychiatrist Charles Sophy, who claimed that the actor’s brain damage was the source of his impulsive behavior. Busey consented to take medicine when the psychiatrist advised him to do so. Busey is well recognized for his work in films such as Predator 2, Lethal Weapon, and others. Reggie: A Millenial Depression Comedy, a 2021 feature film, was the actor’s most recent project.
