The Scotland Yard is currently investigating a second assault allegation against Kevin Spacey, which was filed in London last week.


Variety reports that this allegation was made right after the Old Vic theater in London, where Spacey was formerly the artistic director from 2004 to 2015, reported they had received 20 complaints of inappropriate behavior, though it’s not clear if this allegation is connected to the Old Vic. The new investigation reportedly centers on an incident that occurred in 2005 in Lambeth, where Spacey reportedly lived and the Old Vic is located.

The Scotland Yard is also already investigating Spacey for a 2008 assault in Lambeth, reported by an unidentified young man who said he was an aspiring actor who asked Spacey for career advice.

The Scotland Yard

Pedantic Londoner here, but it’s just Scotland Yard, without the “the” in front. It being the name for the Metropolitan Police HQ.

Scotland Yard and the Metropolitan Police are often used interchangeably by Brits. Although, Londoners generally refer to them as “the Met”

I’ve noticed that outside of the UK, most people tend to use Scotland Yard as their preferred term. Presumably because that’s what they’re most familiar with from stories like Sherlock Holmes.
