NYPD Officer: Enough Evidence To Arrest Weinstein

The NYPD has a strong case to arrest Harvey Weinstein for allegedly raping “Boardwalk Empire” star Paz de la Huerta twice in recent years, according to a new report.

“I believe based on my interviews with Paz that from the NYPD standpoint, we have enough to make an arrest,” Detective Nicholas DiGaudio, who is leading the Weinstein investigation, tells Vanity Fair.

De la Huerta says Weinstein first raped her at her Tribeca apartment in Novemeber 2010, after offering her a lift home from a bar and insisting she let him inside for a drink.

“Immediately when we got inside the house, he started to kiss me and I kind of brushed [him] away,” de la Huerta told Vanity Fair. “Then he pushed me onto the bed and his pants were down and he lifted up my skirt. I felt afraid … It wasn’t consensual … It happened very quickly … He stuck himself inside me … When he was done he said he’d be calling me. I kind of just laid on the bed in shock.”
