Harvey Weinstein smiled at the cameras during his handcuffed perp walk

Harvey Weinstein arrives at the NY Police Department to turn himself in

Harvey Weinstein turned himself into a Tribeca police station at approximately 7:30 am this morning. These are the photos of Weinstein walking into the police station – he seems to have lost weight. He also seems to have brought a few books, just in case he had to wait, I guess, and he wanted to kill some time. Here’s the perp walk, as cops led a handcuffed Weinstein to his arraignment after he was processed at the police station:

Here’s the Associated Press’s alert:

So what were the charges, formally? He was arrested on “rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct charges for encounters with two women. Weinstein is due to be arraigned later today,” according to the AP. The rape charge, according to the AP, stems from a victim who came forward to the NYPD but has not told her story publicly. The NYPD has also thanked all of the victims for coming forward and telling their stories.

CNN reports that prosecutors expect the judge to set a bond of $2 million, which… Weinstein will be able to pay, let’s be real. His business is rightly in shambles and Weinstein has lost a lot of money, but he’ll still be able to pay his bond out of pocket. It’s also believed that Weinstein will be ordered to surrender his passport at the arraignment. Good.

Update: Weinstein’s bond was set at $10 million (or $1 million cash). Weinstein will relinquish his passport and wear a GPS monitoring device, and he can only travel within New York and Connecticut. Weinstein’s attorney made one statement: “Mr. Weinstein has always maintained that he has never engaged in non-consensual sexual behavior with anyone. Nothing about today’s proceedings changes Mr. Weinstein’s position. He has entered a plea of not guilty and fully expects to be exonerated.”

    Everything about him is beyond revolting.

  2. Loopy says:

    He looks very anemic.

  3. minx says:

    Ugh ugh ugh. Evil, disgusting, arrogant pig.

  4. Andy says:

    You could not find a more monstrous cloak for evil to wear. That face is just like a horror movie.

  5. Nicole says:

    I find him revolting. I find his enablers revolting. I find it heinous that it’s taken this long for SOMETHING to happen when everyone knew about this guy.
    Just glad my city is bringing him down. I have more words but they consist of 4 letters

  6. Valerie says:

    He can rot there.

  7. OSTONE says:

    The fact he was arrested would have seemed unthinkable 20,10, 5 years ago. I hope this video and the many pictures send a message to powerful men who abuse and destroy women, that it could be their turn next. There is still so much left to do, but the fall of Harvey Weinstein is the beginning. Time’s Up y’all, and I hope Harvey rots in jail.

  8. Kitkat says:

    Is he actually carrying, “Something Wicked This Way Comes”?! Please tell me he’s not being that bold.

    • BJ says:

      He is that bold and arrogant.

    • Wiffie says:

      It’s Something Wonderful, about Rodgers and Hammerstein who wrote many of the most famous musicals.

      The other book is a biography about Ella Kazal, disgraced filmmaker who lost most of his Hollywood contacts during the Red Scare.

    The second perp walk I have been waiting for. Now we just need Trump to be marched around like this and my life will be complete.

  10. Sparkly says:

    Finally! I’m glad he got arrested, but he has a lot of nerve smiling about it. I hope he gets brought up on charges for a lot more of his crimes as well. He is vile.

  11. Kooks says:

    Who are the two women involved in the rape allegations? Does anyone know officially?

  12. Heidi says:


    My boss caught me being online, waiting for these pictures, but it was worth it. Weinstein looks as if he still doesn’t get that what he did was actually a serious crime, each and every time.

    I just don’t understand why he is still free, when he is so obviously a danger to society. Oh right – just women. Silly me.

  13. SCF says:

    Dismayed by the lack of comments to this story on this site. It seems most of you cared more about the Royal Wedding than you do about justice for Weinstein’s victims.

    • Sunglass Aready says:

      Honey, the people who need to watch are watching this situation very closely.

      If Weinstein undertook a “dirt campaign” against his victims/enemies rest assured he has dirt on the women and people whose’s careers he helped along the way. This story is not over…..

    • Astrosatchel says:

      I don’t think that a lack of comments means that people care less about this. I read most stories on celebitchy but have only commented a few times over the years. Watching and listening to the Weinstein arrest has been very interesting and a huge leap forward after this arrest. Go NYC!

    • Nibbi says:

      the Weinstein affair has been a revolting nightmare for – i don’t even remember- maybe 9 months now? it has brought about wave after wave of horrific details and similar stories and outpourings of pain and outrage, which is cathartic and important, but *frankly* i can’t blame people for spending a few silly little days being happy about something brief, pretty, generally hopeful and optimistic- ie, the royal wedding- getting a damn break from all the horror and looking at and discussing something where people seem to be genuinely happy.

  14. stinky says:

    im thinkin its all been said ad infinitum on the Harvey story.
    no victory lap needed. I cant help but feel like Cosby is still so much worse. But i dont like thinking that – cuz its all BAD!

  15. Catherinski says:

    This vile excuse for a human being carried the Elia Kazan book to send the message that he’s not afraid to “name names” – dirt he has on high-ranking officials and celebrities. Thus the smirk.

    • Mariposa says:

      I was wondering what the message was behind those books. And if he wants to name names, great! He’s going down anyway.
