Slater Arrested For Groping

Hollywood badboy CHRISTIAN SLATER was arrested in the early hours of this morning (31MAY05) for allegedly groping a woman on a New York city sidewalk.

The HEATHERS actor, 35, was arrested and charged with third-degree sexual abuse after the unidentified woman told police the star had touched her buttocks near the junction of 93rd Street and Third Avenue in Manhattan's Upper East Side at 1:50am (EDT).

Slater, who is currently starring on Broadway in THE GLASS MENAGERIE, is expected later today in Manhattan Criminal Court. If convicted, Slater could face up to 60 days behind bars.

It's not Slater's first brush with the law - he was arrested in 1997 for assaulting his girlfriend and a police officer while intoxicated on cocaine at a Los Angeles party. He was sentenced to 90 days in jail after pleading no contest.

Three years before that (94), he was arrested for taking a gun on an airplane.

Then, in 2003, police were called to his hotel room in Las Vegas, Nevada following a fight between himself and his now-estranged wife RYAN HADDON.
