Actor Joseph Gatt who played Thenn Warg in HBO’s Game of Thrones is under investigation for alleged inappropriate communication with a minor.
Gatt was arrested on April 6 after the LAPD and from the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force executed a warrant at his home. They had received a tip that the actor “had been engaged in online sexually explicit communication with a minor across state lines.”
Gatt was arrested on a felony warrant for contact with a minor for sexual offense and was released after posting a $5,000 bail.
He released a statement on his Instagram.
“I obviously want to address the absolutely horrifying and completely untrue allegations recently leveled against me,” he wrote. “They are 100% categorically wrong and reckless. I have confirmed errors and misleading information in today’s press release.”
He added, “I look forward to clearing my good name. Thank you to all of my friends and supporters who know that this is untrue and understand for legal reasons I cannot comment further on social media.”
