A police report says Wopat allegedly hit the girl’s buttocks with his script, saying “nice butt.” Wopat already has pleaded not guilty to groping the unidentified woman.

The 66-year-old actor played Luke Duke on the popular 1980s television show. He was supposed to play Julian Marsh in Reagle Music Theatre’s production of “42nd Street.” He’s since been replaced.

Neither Wopat’s attorney nor his publicist has commented on the charges.
