The cult comedy show “Trailer Park Boys” has been shaken up this weekend with a charge against one its stars and the resignation of another.
Mike Smith, who plays Bubbles on the show, has been charged with a misdemeanour in Los Angeles.
Police haven’t released details of the allegations against Smith, but the show put out a statement quoting the star as saying he never assaulted a woman and is not guilty of the charge against him.
He went on to say the alleged victim is a friend of his.
Co-star Lucy DeCoutere tweeted a few hours after the news became public that she had resigned from the show.
Posts on her Twitter account said the resignation was linked to the allegations against Smith and indicated that DeCoutere had spoken with both her co-star and the alleged victim.
DeCoutere was one of the women who testified against former C-B-C host Jian Ghomeshi, who was acquitted of charges of sexual assault and choking.
