Video footage of Gary Busey pulling his pants down in a public park went viral, it happened one day after police in Cherry Hill charged the actor with two counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual contact.
The 78-year-old actor was at a public park in Malibu, California, on Saturday afternoon, sitting on a bench with his black sweatpants down to his knees. He was also seen looking around and smiling.
Apparently, this isn’t the first time the Rookie of the Year actor has pulled his pants down in public. Busey fought with several housemates on the UK version of Celebrity Big Brother in 2014 for doing the same thing.
Busey allegedly took out his iPhone, stuck one hand down the front of his pants, and fondled himself as he looked around to make sure he was not caught in the act.
When he was finished, Busey reportedly left his pants down, pulled out, and smoked a cigar before returning to his vehicle 30 minutes later and leaving the Malibu park.
However, Busey’s spokesperson said:
“Gary often sits on the bench in front of his home to meditate and look at the ocean.Our only guess is that perhaps at his age, he realized he couldn’t get to the bathroom in time which explains what happened in the video of him on the bench.”
According to AWM:
Busey was once at the top of the acting world when he was nominated for the Oscar for best actor for his role in The Buddy Holly Story, which was released in 1978.
The day before the image of Busey surfaced with his pants down around his ankles, he was charged with four counts of sexual contact and harassment after multiple women all accused the famous actor of touching them in a sexual way during the New Jersey horror movie convention.
Some have attributed the actor’s erratic behavior to a 1988 motorcycle crash that damaged his frontal lobe, making him “more impulsive and prone to anger and delusions of grandeur,” according to a 2019 Hollywood Reporter profile. Busey’s eldest son, Jake, said the crash “turned his personality up to 11.”
