Spacey is charged with felony assault and battery after allegedly groping an 18-year-old man in a Nantucket club in 2016.
As Radar first reported, the court sent a summons to the owners of the Nantucket Club Car and they responded to the court that they were not in possession of “surveillance footage” and that none even existed.
The American Beauty actor appeared in Nantucket District court in Massachusetts on Monday, June 3 for the case where he is accused of groping William Little in the club.
“The purchase of assets did not include any ‘surveillance footage,’” the owner of the club said via their attorney in court documents filed on May 31.
“When we took possession of the premises in November or December 2016 the premises was not equipped with any cameras or any devices capable of generating ‘surveillance footage’ or video of any kind,” the documents stated.
The court had ordered that the Nantucket Club Car turn over the footage by June 3.
“Nantucket Club Car is not in possession of any ‘surveillance footage’ or footage of any kind from the date we acquire the business through today,” the documents stated.
“If Nantucket Club Car was in possession of surveillance footage or any video from the period of time that we understand the summons relates to we would absolutely turn it over however that is not possible since we never had any video of any kind nor doesn’t seem possible from the condition of the premises as we took it and knew it to exist there was any means to make ‘surveillance footage,’” the court document explained.
Spacey pleaded not guilty to the felony in February.
The actor claimed in court documents that the alleged victim “manipulated” text message evidence in the case and the prosecution hit back in documents obtained by Radar, stating that he was using court filings to generate media attention for the case.
