‘Game of Thrones’ Joseph Gatt Was Put Behind Bars

On April 6, he was brought into the jail and arrested on an outstanding felony warrant for contact with a minor for sexual conduct, according to LAPD sources obtained by TMZ.

Following the arrest, the LAPD’s Juvenile Division’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force seeks further victims and has requested anybody with more information to contact law authorities.
Gatt was freed the same day on a $5,000 bond and issued a statement on social media denying the charges against him.

He started by saying, “I obviously want to address the absolutely horrifying and completely untrue allegations recently leveled against me.”

“They are 100% categorically wrong and reckless. I have confirmed errors and misleading information in today’s press release. I am fully cooperating with police and LAPD to get to the bottom of this.”

“I look forward to clearing my good name. Thank you to all my friends and supporters who know that this is untrue and understand for legal reasons I cannot comment further on social media,” his post concluded.
