Harvey Weinstein surrendered to police and was led away in handcuffs in New York before being arraigned on charges related to the sexual abuse allegations that helped to launch the #MeToo movement.

The details: Per his lawyer, Weinstein intends to plead not guilty to the rape and criminal sex act charges. They stem from two of the dozens of women who have accused him of sexual misconduct, per the AP. Weinstein is free on $1 million bail with constant electronic monitoring and restricted travel outside New York and Connecticut.
