Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Dukes of Hazzard star Tom Wopat was arrested for indecent assault, battery and cocaine possession Wednesday in Massachusetts.

Police apprehended the actor on a warrant and charged him with cocaine possession at the time of the arrest, People magazine reported.

Law enforcement made the arrest after pulling him over in his Ford Bronco.

Wopat is in Massachusetts to star in a stage production of 42nd Street. The 65-year-old is accused of putting his hands down the pants of a woman who is involved with the play, TMZ reported.

On Thursday, Wopat's Twitter account, in a now deleted post, made no mention of the arrest and instead promoted the opening night of 42nd Street.

A representative for Wopat has yet to comment on the arrest. He was previously charged with driving under the influence and reckless driving in 2006.
