Laurence Andries, an executive producer on the hit CBS series Blue Bloods, has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting an aspiring writer he reportedly met through a mentorship program.

The alleged assault occurred in Los Angeles on June 30, 2022, according to published reports.

The incident made headlines after the alleged victim sat down with local news station ABC7, for a tearful interview that aired on March 6.

The man, whose face and voice were obscured, told the station he’s a military veteran and befriended Andries through a writers training program.

The man, identified only as John Doe, said he later went out for drinks with Andries and everything changed.

“I believe that he drugged one of my drinks, took me to his place and then, I can’t say the word,” John Doe said while breaking down crying.

John Doe told the station “I always made it very clear, like, I’m heterosexual.”

He added that he immediately reported the alleged assault to police.

The aspiring writer said he decided to speak out, and encourage others to come forward, because investigators believe he isn’t the only alleged victim of the Hollywood producer.

“You still have a voice. He did not take that away from you,” John Doe said in the TV interview. “You have power to use your voice to help to ensure that this doesn’t happen to anyone else.”

The LAPD launched an investigation and Andries, 66, was taken into custody at 5 a.m. on Aug. 29, 2023, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s online inmate information portal.

Andries was charged with six felony counts, including sodomy on a victim prevented from resisting by a controlled substance, oral copulation of an intoxicated victim, and penetration of an intoxicated person, the Los Angeles Times reported. The producer did not respond to a request for comment.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges and was released on $150,000 bond.
