LAPD Opens Investigation Into Terry Crews' Report of Sexual Assault
Adam Venit, the alleged perpetrator, has been put on leave from WME in the aftermath of the allegations.
Los Angeles police have opened an investigation after actor and former pro football player Terry Crews filed a report on Wednesday claiming he was sexually assaulted, the department told The Hollywood Reporter.
The robbery/homicide division, which also handles sex crimes, now has the case, police told THR. No further details were given other than Crews was the victim in the report, which was filed at the LAPD Hollywood station.
The suspect in the report is believed to be WME agent Adam Venit, who was put on leave from the agency in the aftermath of the allegations, which Crews outlined on Twitter.
On Oct. 10, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star — and WME client — tweeted that a "high-level Hollywood executive" groped his "privates" at a party last year. The alleged assault happened in view of Crews' wife. "Jumping back, I said, 'What are you doing?!' He just grinned like a jerk," Crews wrote.
Crews said he told others at the party what occurred and that Venit called the next day with an apology.
Venit does not represent Crews, but he does rep Adam Sandler, Diane Keaton, Eddie Murphy, Kevin James, Rob Lowe, Russell Brand, Shawn Levy, Steve Martin, Sylvester Stallone and Vince Vaughn. He also reps Brett Ratner and Dustin Hoffman, men who are facing sexual misconduct allegations of their own.
