Spacey faced a public fall from stardom in the wake of sexual harassment allegation levelled by actor Anthony Rapp.
Cape and Island District Attorney Michael O'Keefe said in a statement "a criminal complaint of indecent assault and battery" has been issued "against Kevin S. Fowler, also known as Kevin Spacey", for the July 2016 incident.
Earlier this week, Kevin Spacey was charged with sexually assaulting Unruh's son. The alleged victim accuses Spacey of giving him drinks, and then Spacey allegedly "continued the touching through the top of [his] trousers".
Unruh's son said he escaped when Spacey went to the bathroom.
"The victim, my son, was a star-struck, straight, 18-year-old young man who had no idea that the famous actor was an alleged sexual predator or that he was about to become his next victim", she told reporters. He told investigators that he tried to shift his body away from Spacey and to push away Spacey's hands, but "Spacey kept reaching down his trousers".
Former news anchor Heather Unruh came forward in November 2017 to say the actor stuck his hand down the trousers of her son, who was 18 at the time, and grabbed his genitals at the Club Car Restaurant on Nantucket in July 2016.More news: Jurgen Klopp reveals how many points Liverpool need to win Premier League

He seemed to be slipping seamlessly back into the role of Frank, the sociopathic central character of Netflix drama House of Cards who was instantly dropped from the final season following allegations of sexual assault made against the actor in October 2017. In the last twenty-four hours, Kevin's video on YouTube has been viewed 4.5 million times.
In the Christmas Eve video, Kevin says, "I know what you want, you want me back".
"I know what you want".
But you wouldn't believe the worst without evidence, would you? It's also unclear if Spacey himself was entirely behind the video or if its release was directly tied to the news about his sexual assault charge. "Of course, some believed everything and have been just waiting with bated breath to hear me confess it all".
"The one positive aspect of the Kevin Spacey video is that we can all point to it and say, "That's what happens when you don't have a screenwriter", wrote screenwriter Craig Mazin. They're just dying to have me declare that everything said is true, and that I got what I deserved. "I know what you want", he begins. "Ultimately the facts will play out in a courtroom, but what you've done is create a media circus for this upcoming hearing".
"They're going to say I'm being disrespectful, not playing by the rules", he adds.
