Now you know I had to get the mug shot
Two of Hollywood's up-and-comers were arrested in the Mid-South. Both men, in Memphis filming the movie "Hustle and Flow," face rape charges. One of the men arrested has acted in a lot of popular movies. Sheriff's deputies took the two suspects into custody Tuesday night. The alleged incident happened around five in the afternoon. None of this has stopped filming on the movie.
Workers and actors for the movie, Hustle and Flow, started shooting scenes on Brooks Road at the King of Clubs topless club. On Tuesday, the penal farm was the site for shooting. And it is here the allegations of rape came about, allegations that led to charges of aggravated rape against actor Anthony Anderson and assistant director Wayne Witherspoon. According to investigators, a 25-year-old extra in the film was lured by Witherspoon inside a movie production trailer at the penal farm. Steve Shular, Shelby Co. Sheriff's Dept. said, "Once she got in that trailer the other gentleman, Mr. Anderson was inside, and according to her allegations they both sexually assaulted here." The affidavit of complaint says the men removed her clothes, held her down and took pictures of her after assaulting her. A witness heard the woman's screams and unlocked the trailer. She then ran nude out of the trailer. The victim was taken to a sexual assault center.
Anthony Anderson has been in dozens and dozens of movies, like the very popular Barbershop. The movie Hustle and Flow is about a pimp from South Memphis who has dreams of becoming a rapper.
The two suspects are in the criminal justice center, each with 20-thousand dollars bonds. They could get out of jail Wednesday night. It is not clear what their status will be with the movie being shot here.
