According to Fox News, Bill Cosby was arraigned Wednesday on a felony assault charge stemming from a sexual encounter with a woman 12 years ago.
Wearing a spotted gray hooded sweater, Cosby was walked into the brick courthouse in Elkins Park, Pa., flanked by a man and a woman. The comedian held a briefcase and cane, and he nearly tripped on the sidewalk outside the courthouse entrance as cameras covered his every move.
Cosby posted 10 percent of a $1 million bail in cash.
Magisterial District Judge Elizabeth A. McHugh cautioned that she didn’t want any commotion in the courtroom before asking Cosby if he understood the charges against him. Cosby said he did, and surrendered his passport to the prosecutor. Cosby was also ordered not to make contact with the alleged victim.
About 15 minutes after he arrived, the actor left the courthouse, shaking his head as reporters asked him comment.
