Gary Busey grabbed women by the buttocks at a New Jersey convention, police say – NBC10 Philadelphia

This month, actor Gary Busey allegedly tried to unbutton a woman’s bra and grabbed the buttocks of two others at a horror film convention in New Jersey.

The allegations are detailed in a criminal complaint obtained by NBC10. They include accusations from two women and the father of another who allege the actor committed criminal sexual offenses at the annual Monster Mania Convention in Cherry Hill, August 12-14.

Two women told police they were taking photos with Busey when he put his face against one of the women’s breasts and “asked where she got them” before trying to unfasten her bra straps, the complaint said. The second woman said he grabbed her buttocks.

The next day, the man told Cherry Hill police detectives that Busey had assaulted his daughter. Detectives spoke with her and she said Busey also grabbed her buttocks during a photo shoot at the convention, according to the criminal complaint.

Busey committed the alleged acts “for the purpose of sexually arousing or sexually gratifying or humiliating the victim through the use of physical force or coercion,” according to the complaint.

After detectives contacted the actor, he initially denied touching anyone, but later asked detectives to apologize to the victims and talk to them about the need to file complaints, the complaint said.

He also allegedly told detectives “that sometimes you can accidentally touch someone with a certain body part.”

Busey, 78, best known for playing musician Buddy Holly in the 1978 film “The Buddy Holly Story,” was charged with two counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual contact, one count of attempted criminal sexual contact and one count of harassment.

NBC10 reached out to Busey’s representatives, but they did not respond.

The monstrosity convention said in a Facebook post that after attendees complained, the unnamed “celebrity guest was removed from the convention and ordered not to return.”

“Monster-Mania also urged those in attendance to contact the police to file a report,” the company said, adding that behavior that endangers the safety and well-being of participants will not be tolerated. “Monster-Mania will continue to assist the authorities in any way possible,” the statement said.
