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.

Why did she kiss him if she didn't want to be touched?

Sounds like 7th grade level making out, not, "sexual battery." Ridiculous.

Sorry but he sounds like the dirt bag, why would a grown so called man try this in a movie theater? Grow up already. She didn't have to run to the cops but he is the creep, IMO.

Any woman with half a brain would do the math, that if a guy in over 40 is not married and not recently divorced---RUN. There's a reason.

interesting comments, and why i don't want to date but would like to meet someone, an invite to a movie is not something that would automatically include sex.Kissing is not the same as groping.While not neccessarily a police issue, i am surprised at how many people think this is normal behavior on a first date.She might have some kind of case because men cannot just randomly grab women and touch them inappropriately because the woman kissed them.Our society is so unrefined and ill bred.Men, there is something called timing and rushing a woman into things before she feels equally ready is selfish and wrong.It's also disrespectful.And the guy who said just go to a prostitute, yes why don't you?That's definitely the answer.

Sounds like a setup... A few self-taken, in the mirror photos of the "victim" to hit TMZ in 5...4..3..2...

That's ridiculous! He was just progressing from base to base. Is this not the normal progression of a make-out session?!

Making out in a movie? How old are they, 16? Couldn't do it at home because the parents are there? Besides that, she's obviously in it for the cash.
