• LAPD responds to family disturbance call involving Harvey Weinstein

    By Herald de Paris Contributor's Bureau on October 11, 2017

    LOS ANGELES —  According to a Los Angeles Times report by Richard Winton, LAPD responded to a family disturbance involving embattled movie producer Harvey Weinstein on Wednesday, law enforcement sources said.

    Officers from the LAPD’s Wilshire Division responded to a radio call at around 10:30 a.m. to a Los Angeles home and met with Harvey Weinstein’s daughter, police said. They spoke to her for about half an hour. The officers took no further action and determined no one was a danger.

    Sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly, said Winton, indicated that Weinstein was in some distress but emphasized that officials are considering it a welfare call, not a criminal call.

    Weinstein Co., based in New York, fired Harvey Weinstein over the weekend after an investigation by the New York Times said he’d reached at least eight legal settlements, dating to 1990, with women over alleged harassment.
