A former model and actor claims George Takei was trying to grope his genitals after he felt dizzy and passed out from a drink he had in the former Star Trek actor's condo after a night out. George Takei is accused of sexually assaulting Scott R. Brunton. This occurred in 1981 when Brunton was 23-years-old and . He didn't come out with the story before because he figured it was his word vs George Takei's word and who would listen to some random barely known guy instead of the Star Trek star? Now that all of Hollywood is exploding with accusations, he figured it was safe to tell his story.
This accusation comes at a time when Hollywood is burning like wildfires and sexual assault accusations are flying out of the smoke left and right. It's like someone lit a fireworks display and every blast and bang is another sexual assault accusation that starts a slow moving fire of new accusations burning up across the country. Is that what celebrities did back in the day?
This particular accusation stems from a night out when Brunton was recently single and considered Takei a good ear to talk to. After their night out, they're reported to have gone to Takei's condo for dinks. Hollywood reporter states that "During the second round, Brunton said he began “feeling very disoriented and dizzy” and thought he “was going to pass out" Then he passed out on a bean bag chair.
When he woke up it was very strange what was happening.
"The next thing I remember I was coming to and he had my pants down around my ankles and he was groping my crotch and trying to get my underwear off and feeling me up at the same time, trying to get his hands down my underwear," Brunton told The Hollywood Reporter. "I came to and said, 'What are you doing?!' I said, 'I don't want to do this.'”
Brunton claimed he left the apartment despite Takei telling him “to relax” and “get comfortable.”

Brunton wanted to leave right when the groping incident happened, but he was a bit too inebriated to drive. He went to his car and waited it out before leaving the area.
The Hollywood Reporter spoke to four of Brunton's friends - "Norah Roadman, Rob Donovan, Stephen Blackshear and Jan Steward" and they have confirmed that Brunton talked to them about the incident that allegedly occurred in 1981.
Takei's agent stated he was traveling and not reachable for comment.
