Scrubs and Californication's co-executive producer Eric Weinberg has been arrested for a string of rapes, and police believe there are more victims. Radar has learned Weinberg was picked up by the LAPD on multiple sexual assault charges Thursday while at his Los Feliz home.
Police say the assaults occurred between 2012 and 2019. Law enforcement officials confirm that Weinberg is being held on $3.2 million bail.
They also revealed his disturbing MO.
Weinberg would allegedly prey on women in their 20s and 30s “in grocery stores, coffee shops, and other public places." When he'd approach them, police say he'd ask if they wanted to participate in a photo shoot.
If they agreed, the photo shoot allegedly turned into a sexual assault.
The LAPD believes Weinberg victims could date all the way back to the 1990s. They are asking for anyone with information on "unidentified victims” to come forward.
Detectives will be passing their evidence against the television producer to the LA County District Attorney’s office soon, Deadline reports.
“When the case is submitted, we will review it and determine if charges are appropriate,” a spokesperson for George Gascón told the outlet.
Weinberg has worked in Hollywood and on several successful shows for decades.
He worked alongside Zach Braff, Donald Faison, and Sarah Chalke on Scrubs from 2002-2006. His time on David Duchovny Californication only lasted one season in 2011.
Weinberg also served as co-executive producer on Charlie Sheen's comedy Anger Management from 2013-2014. His other notable work includes Men at Work, Death Valley, and Veronica's Closet.
The accused predator even has five Emmy nominations under his belt.
