Kevin Spacey bailed after sexual assault hearing in London

Kevin Spacey has arrived at a court in London charged with sexually assaulting three men.

The actor, 62, arrived at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday morning to face four counts of sexual assault and one count of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent.

He was accompanied by members of his legal team and two police officers.

The disgraced actor was mobbed by hordes of photographers as he exited a silver Mercedes outside Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

He made no comment as he was rushed past a queue of other court attendees and through the entrance before passing security.
