The actor is best known for his role as Thenn Warg in HBO's “Game of Thrones.”
Actor Joseph Gatt was apprehended and presented with a search warrant at his home in Los Angeles, California, for allegedly engaging in “online sexually explicit communication” with a minor from another state.
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.
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.
