On Wednesday, an official told the Daily Beast they are “ready to go with an arrest,” but did not specify which case they were referring to. The NYPD is allegedly looking into five separate allegations against Weinstein, including Lucia Evans, who was interviewed for Ronan Farrow’s New Yorker report in October, and actress Paz de la Huerta, who claims Weinstein assaulted her twice. NYPD Chief Robert Boyce said in a press conference Wednesday that they “have a lot of information, we have people who are getting ready to go to grand jury.”
The NYPD is reportedly just waiting on approval from Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, who declined to file charges against Weinstein in 2015 after model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez wore a wire and captured Weinstein admitting to past inappropriate behavior, as well as apologizing for touching her breasts—a story detailed in Farrow’s piece. Vance defended that decision, claiming they didn’t have enough evidence to charge Weinstein.
The Los Angeles District Attorney is also investigating five allegations against Weinstein.
Vance’s office declined comment.
