On Friday, The Buddy Holly Story actor Gary Busey was charged over reported sexual offenses at a Monster Mania Convention in New Jersey.

According to Cherry Hill Police Chief Robert Kempf, three women who attended the horror fan convention accused Busey of groping them during a meet and greet on August 13.

Legal documents reveal that one woman accused Busey of putting his face close to her breasts and trying to undo her bra strap. Another woman accused him of grabbing her butt, and a father reported that Busey grabbed his daughter’s butt, too.

The actor was a featured celebrity guest at the event, which took place at a Doubletree Hotel near Philadelphia.

Busey was charged with two counts of criminal sexual contact in the fourth degree, one count of criminal attempt/criminal sexual contact in the fourth degree and one count of harassment.

Per the documents, Busey initially denied the groping. Later, he asked to apologize and claimed that “sometimes it is possible to accidentally touch someone in a specific body part.”

Moustakas Nelson, a law firm representing Monster Mania, said in a statement, “Our client, Monster-Mania LLC, is assisting authorities in their investigation into an alleged incident involving attendees and a celebrity guest at its convention in Cherry Hill, New Jersey last weekend.”

“Immediately upon receiving a complaint from the attendees, the celebrity guest was removed from the convention and instructed not to return.”

They added that Monster Mania “encouraged the attendees to contact the police to file a report.”

The statement noted that “the safety and well-being of all attendees is of the utmost importance to Monster-Mania, and the company will not tolerate any behavior that could compromise those values.”

Chief Kempf noted that police have not had contact with legal representatives for the actor. Busey will appear in the Camden Superior Court later this month.

One day after the charges, paparazzi caught the actor publicly pulling his pants down at Point Dume Park in Malibu.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information should contact the Cherry Hill Police Department.
