A spokesperson for Spacey has declined to comment on the latest LAPD investigation.

Prosecutors in Los Angeles are reviewing a sexual assault case against Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey, who is accused of assaulting a man in Hollywood in 1992.

The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department said on Wednesday it began investigating the case in December, and presented it to the Los Angeles District Attorney office for review earlier this month.

The nature and origin of the sexual assault accusation was not disclosed.

At the time of writing, no further information is known about the case, but it comes after the former "House of Cards" star - who was sacked from his role in the wake of the claims against him - is already under investigation in England by Scotland Yard for three separate sexual assault allegations.

Hurricane Irma made 4 landfalls in the Caribbean as a Category 5 storm before affecting most of Florida. With 17 named storms, the 2017 season was the fifth-most active since record keeping began in 1851.

US filmmaker Tony Montana told Radar Online that Spacey "forcefully" grabbed his crotch in 2003 at the Coronet Bar in Los Angeles.

Spacey first came under fire after Anthony Rapp accused the actor, then 26, of making sexual advances towards him when he was just 14 years old.

Rapp said that, after a party in Spacey's NY apartment in 1986, Spacey picked him up, placed him on a bed, climbed on top of him and made a sexual advance. Spacey has been out of the public eye since the drama spilled with reports suggesting he is seeking counselling in Arizona.

Spacey who was sacked from his role on the hit Netflix series House of Cards last October, has been the subject of a number of allegations both in the U.S. and the UK.

The Old Vic theatre in London, where he was artistic director, has said its received 20 complaints of inappropriate behaviour against him. Accusations against him also triggered reshoots for the Ridley Scott film "All The Money In The World", which saw Spacey's performance as oil tycoon J. Paul Getty replaced by Christopher Plummer - who earned an Academy Award nomination for the role. He was removed from the hit show "House of Cards", which earned him five Emmy nominations.
