“My client cat­e­gor­i­cally de­nies the al­le­ga­tions,” the 71-year-old ac­tor’s lawyer told CNN. “It’s out­ra­geous that the DA’s of­fice and po­lice depart­ment would an­nounce this in­for­ma­tion be­cause it makes the pub­lic think that there’s some­thing there.”

He added that the ac­cuser had pre­vi­ously had a con­sen­sual re­la­tion­ship with the Rocky star in the 1980s.
