Actor Gary Busey has been accused of groping several women at a horror convention where he allegedly put his face near a woman’s breast before he attempted to undo her bra.
Busey, 78, was charged on Friday with four counts of sexual contact and harassment after one woman claimed the actor asked where she got her breasts from, while another said Busey grabbed her butt at the annual Monster Mania Convention in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
Police received an additional call from a man who said his daughter was also sexually assaulted by Busey at the convention on August 13, according to documents obtained by TMZ.
The Buddy Holly actor denied the allegations before he requested to apologize to the woman while saying it’s possible to ‘accidentally touch someone in a specific body part,’ according to legal documents.

Police initially did not identify the suspect as the actor, but followed up with a statement saying that Busey was the man facing charges.

A lawyer for the convention, Nikitas Moustakas, said the company was ‘assisting authorities in their investigation into an alleged incident involving attendees and a celebrity guest at its convention.’
‘Immediately upon receiving a complaint from the attendees, the celebrity guest was removed from the convention and instructed not to return,’ he said.
‘Monster-Mania also encouraged the attendees to contact the police to file a report. The safety and well-being of all our attendees is of the utmost importance to Monster-Mania, and the company will not tolerate any behavior that could compromise those values.’

A week after the accusations, Busey was caught with his pants down at Point Dume Park in Malibu, California, on Saturday.
Busey appeared to perform a lewd act and then lit up a cigar – hours after he was charged with groping the three woman.
Shocking photos show the actor was wearing a shirt that referenced the 1991 film ‘Point Break,’ in which he had a supporting role. Busey made his way to the bench at a lookout point, where he sat down, pulled out his phone and then pulled down his pants.
Busey stuck one hand down the front of his pants, appeared to clench his jaw and then looked around to make sure no bystanders had caught him in the lewd act.
Seemingly satisfied with his actions, Busey lit up a cigar and looked out over the ocean for nearly 30 minutes before getting back in his car and leaving the park.

He was charged with one count of cocaine possession and three counts of possession of marijuana, possession of hallucinogenic mushrooms and being under the influence of cocaine.
In the past he has also been arrested on charges of spousal abuse.
In 2011, during a season of Celebrity Apprentice, he was accused of sexually assaulting a female employee of the show.
‘We were smoking cigarettes outside, and Busey was standing next to me,’ an employee told the Daily Beast in 2016. ‘And then at one point, he grabbed me firmly between my legs, and ran his hand up my stomach, and grabbed my breasts.
‘I didn’t know what to do. So I made this joke that, “Oh, I’ve never been sexually harassed by a celebrity before!” Then he grabbed my hand and put it [over] his penis, and said, like, “I’m just getting started, baby.”‘
