A police official says the department is ready to arrest the disgraced movie mogul for allegedly sexually assaulting Lucia Evans.
The NYPD is prepared to collar Harvey Weinstein for felony sexual assault, a police official with direct knowledge of the case told The Daily Beast.
"We're ready to go with an arrest," the official said yesterday afternoon.
The NYPD is awaiting only a nod from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.
Earlier in the day, Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce was asked during a wide ranging press availability about the investigation into sexual assault allegations against Weinstein. Boyce replied that the detectives are still gathering evidence in the case and, "It is going very, very well."
