J.P. Manoux is known to many for his strange, creepy roles on Phil of the Future and Community. Now, two women in Canada accuse him of being a real-life creep.
According to The Toronto Sun, the 45-year-old turned himself in on Tuesday after two women “discovered hidden cameras and video equipment connected to the Internet” in their new apartment — which was previously rented by the actor. Authorities believe there may be additional victims, as several other women lived in the apartment after J.P.
American-born J.P. currently stars in Spun Out, a Canadian sitcom. The second season was scheduled to begin in March and a special was scheduled for this Sunday, but broadcast network CTV put those plans on hold while the investigation is underway.
“CTV was shocked to learn tonight of the arrest of Spun Out actor J.P. Manoux,” executive Scott Henderson told The Toronto Sun on Tuesday. “The charges against him are serious allegations… We can confirm that all future broadcast plans for Spun Out, including this Sunday’s post Super Bowl sneak peek, have been indefinitely suspended.”
J.P. was charged with one count of voyeurism and released on Tuesday. He is next due in court on March 11.
