Harvey Weinstein, who went from one of Hollywood's most powerful film producers to being disgraced by accusations of sexual assault by scores of women, is expected to surrender to police and face charges in New York on Friday morning, the New York Times reported.
Weinstein's spokesman Juda Engelmayer and Weinstein's lawyer Benjamin Brafman both declined to comment on the report, which cited two unidentified law enforcement officials.
The New York Daily News and NBC News also reported Weinstein was expected to be arrested and charged following a months-long investigation, including by the Manhattan district attorney's office.
More than 70 women have accused the co-founder of the Miramax studio and The Weinstein Co of sexual misconduct, including rape. The allegations, first reported by the New York Times and the New Yorker last year, gave rise to the #MeToo movement in which hundreds of women have publicly accused powerful men in business, government and entertainment.
Weinstein has denied having non-consensual sex with anyone.
