Cops said the charges relate to more than one incident at the fan convention, but did not provide details of the alleged crimes or victims.

Police did not initially identify the suspect as the actor, but followed up with a statement saying Busey was the man being charged.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Busey had an attorney on the matter, and a representative for the actor didn’t immediately respond Saturday asking for comment.

Busey is widely known as a character actor, mostly in supporting roles, although he drew attention and was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for the title role in the 1978 film The Buddy Holly Story.
