David Guillod, the producer of movies like “Atomic Blonde” and “Extraction,” has been charged with 11 felonies, including sexual assault, by the authorities of Santa Barbara.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the charges filed by the office of Santa Barbara’s District Attorney are related to the incidents that happened in May 2012, December 2014, and January 2015. Some of the other charges that were leveled against Guillod included kidnapping to commit rape and rape of a drugged victim.

According to a statement issued by the district attorney’s office, the charges against Guillod were filed after “extensive investigations” conducted by the law enforcement authorities.

“Charges were filed after extensive investigations were conducted by the Santa Barbra County Sheriff’s Department and the Los Angeles Police Department while working in conjunction with the District Attorneys of Santa Barbara County and Los Angeles County,” the statement read.

The producer was arrested by the police on Monday (June 22) and was taken into custody. His bail has been set at a bond of $3 million.

Guillod's lawyer came out with a statement as soon as the arrest was made and noted that his client is "innocent." In a statement obtained by the media outlet, Philip Cohen explained that Guillod has been denying these allegations for the past eight years and has fully cooperated with all the investigations that have taken place.

“For the past eight years, Mr. Guillod has denied these allegations, and for the past eight years, Mr. Guillod has fully cooperated with all aspects of law enforcement’s investigation. We find the unification of the cases filed through the Santa Barbara DA’s office and the timing suspicious. An overwhelming amount of evidence has been collected over the course of this investigation disputing these charges,” Cohen said.

One of the people accusing Guillod of sexual assault is Jessica Barth, an actress who made an appearance in the movie “Ted.” In 2017, Barth alleged that the producer drugged her and assaulted her during a 2012 dinner meeting.

Guillod is the fifth person after Chris D’Elia, Danny Masterson, Ansel Elgort and Justin Bieber to be accused of sexual assault or misconduct in a span of one week.

Bieber was accused of sexual assault by at least two women on social media. On June 20, a woman named “Danielle” alleged in a Twitter statement that she had been assaulted by Bieber on March 9, 2014 at the Four Seasons hotel in Austin, Texas. At the time, Bieber made a surprise appearance at the South by Southwest Festival.

Bieber was quick to reply to these allegations via a series of tweets the following day, denying that he was in the hotel Danielle had mentioned. The “Love Yourself” hitmaker also noted that while he was at Austin at the time and he had been accompanied by then-girlfriend Selena Gomez.

The musician backed up his statement by citing several news stories that appear to prove he was at the event and was accompanied by his ex-girlfriend.
