Crews filed a report at a Los Angeles Police Department station on Wednesday and since the alleged incident occurred past year, it is within the statute of limitations in the state of California and could lead to a criminal investigation. Because the alleged incident happened last year, Crews was able to file before the California statute of limitations expired, meaning a criminal investigation could reasonably be launched with the 49-year-old "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star as the victim. Venit has reportedly been placed on leave while WME looks in to the situation.

Venit is on now on leave from the agency as it investigates the claims.More news: Three WKU teams post flawless scores on Graduation Success Rate Report

Because the alleged incident took place a year ago and within the statute of limitations in California, it's possible that a criminal investigation could follow.
