As well as playing Luke Duke, he has played roles in several recent films.

The actor was taken into custody in Waltham, Mass. on Wednesday, Aug. 2, 2017.

Then again, the hijinks on The Dukes Of Hazzard were mischievous fun, not indecent assault and battery on a woman and misdemeanor drug possession.

TMZ reports the indecent assault charge stems from a woman connected to the show's production, where Wopat allegedly put his hands down her trousers.

On Thursday, Wopat was arraigned and plead not guilty to all charges.

Police said Wopat, 65, was arrested Wednesday at the home he's staying at in Waltham.

According to court documents, Wopat denied touching anyone.

According to a press statement from the police "two bags of white powder believed to be cocaine were discovered" during a search of Wopat and his vehicle.

Wopat was scheduled to appear in a production of "42nd Street" at the Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston, which is based in Waltham.

The Tony nominee told police he liked to flirt with women but never did anything inappropriate.

Since his role in the hit show "Dukes of Hazzard from 1979 to 1985, Wopat has done guest roles on T.V. shows and acted in movies, including critically acclaimed Django Unchained".
