The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office accused Eric Weinberg, a co-executive producer, and writer for the 2000s television comedy Scrubs, with 18 charges of sexual assault and abuse on Tuesday.

Days after accusations of rape, oral copulation, sexual battery, false imprisonment, assault using weapons of serious bodily damage, and six counts of forcible penetration by a foreign object were filed, the suspect was taken into custody. He was arrested on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. and freed at midnight after paying $5 million bail.

Later this afternoon, District Attorney George Gascón is scheduled to conduct a press conference to discuss the accusations against Weinberg, who also served as a producer on the television shows Californication on Showtime and Anger Management on FX.

Weinberg was first detained in July on suspicion of crimes including rape, which reportedly occurred between 2012 and 2019. After securing $3,225,000 in bond, he was freed.

Weinberg appeared to have targeted women in their 20s and 30s in grocery stores, coffee shops, and other public areas at the time, according to Los Angeles Police Department investigators, who claimed he was posing as a photographer. He allegedly planned picture shoots with them and “would sexually abuse them” there. Authorities have been looking for further unidentified victims since the early 1990s and pleading with them to come forward.

For a piece that appeared on September 1st, The Hollywood Reporter spoke with a few of his accusers. A pattern of predatory behavior and wrongdoing allegedly dating back decades was revealed by more than two dozen women. Some of the accusations date back to 2000, when he worked on the Scrubs television show, and included claims of improper behavior involving kids.

Numerous women claimed Weinberg, who was nominated for five Emmys for his work on Scrubs and Politically Incorrect With Bill Maher, used his Hollywood background to gain trust before pressuring them to strip off during filming. He allegedly often photographed the alleged nonconsensual sexual conduct of several women.
