0521_timothy_busfield_article
A movie date for Timothy Busfield went terribly awry ... a woman is now accusing the famed actor of sexual battery ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Busfield took a date to the ArcLight theaters in Sherman Oaks Wednesday night. Our sources say the two began kissing during the movie, but the woman claims at some point ... Busfield groped her in the breast and genital areas. 

We're told the woman abruptly ended the date and went to police the following evening  ... filing a report alleging sexual battery. 

Law enforcement sources tell us police are investigating.  Busfield has not been arrested, but we're told cops would like to speak with him. 


Busfield's credits include "The West Wing," "thirtysomething," "Field of Dreams," and "Revenge of the Nerds."

Busfield could not be reached for comment.

What a tramp. It was a DATE and you were in a public theatre. Give me a break. Now, for the next Gloria Allred news conference...

Well, I understand her point of view though: sometimes people can become a little desperate when they can't find a job. An opportunity presented itself and she took it.

In this day and age, the cops won't do anything, especially to a celebrity. If she didn't want him reaching 2nd base, then she shouldn't have let him on 1st base.

Yeah, yet she goes to the cops the following night. That's how upset she was.

Seriously, this will not hold up in a court. She already gave him concent by MAKING OUT WITH HIM IN A MOVIE THEATRE!

Might be a good idea to drop the charges and get Walmart to transfer you to another town lady... What ever happened to slapping someone across the face and leaving. Why all of a sudden is everyone so gung ho about pressing charges for every damn experience they live through? We're turning into sissies that cant take a hit here and there and learn from it!

Grow up people, for the love of God, grow up!

Ive been abused too, but ya dont see me calling the cops. Because I got over it, I moved on and had a life. Rather than making excuses and jumping on the pitty train. Move on!

They were making out! If she didn't want him to touch her she shouldn't have been kissing him in a dark movie theatre.

Ironic how a lot of the comments say she could have said, "NO". She did say, "NO". And the other comments say she's an ice queen for rejecting him. Ummm, maybe she just wanted to go see a movie and have a meal without being treated like a slut. And if she had sex with him, you would think she's a whore. You people are just a bunch of hypocrites.

Good Lord! Is she a 13 year old out on her first date?! If it was SO inappropriate, embarrass him by calling him out in front of the other patrons and LEAVE! You don't run to the police station and file charges because your DATE tried to cop a feel in a public place. Grow the hell up, gold-digger!
