Actor and comedian Bill Cosby has been arrested and charged with sexual misconduct. The 78-year-old comedian was arrested Wednesday in Elkins Park, Pa. He is charged with a decade-old sexual assault related to an incident at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. He has faced accusations from dozens of women over the past few years. He had no comment as he was released on $1 million bail. The decision to prosecute came just days before Pennsylvania's 12-year statute of limitations for bringing charges was set to expire.
