UK politicians urge police investigation into Russell Brand sexual assault allegations

On September 18, senior British politicians urged law enforcement to open an investigation into Russell Brand over sexual assault allegations. NBC reports that the British entertainment industry is under scrutiny for potentially failing to address the comedian's bad behavior because of his fame. Brand has denied the allegations of four women whose claims were highlighted in a television documentary and 'The Times' and 'Sunday Times' newspapers. Among the accusers is one unnamed woman who claims she was sexually assaulted by Brand while in a relationship with him when she was 16.
