Eric Weinberg is a screenwriter and television producer best known for his work on the television series Scrubs. The LAPD arrested him in July on numerous charges of sexual assault between 2012 and 2019. His court appearance has been postponed after the District Attorney’s office notified the victims that it needs more time to analyze and review the enormous influx of new allegations from additional women received by the LAPD.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Weinberg was arrested on suspicion of rape in 2014. He was set to be arraigned on Friday, August 12th, at which point the District Attorney’s office would present the charges against him, and he would enter a plea. Marlene Martinez, the Deputy District Attorney (DDA) reviewing the case, informed the accusers on Thursday that her office would want additional time to review a large amount of evidence delivered by detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department.
Weinberg was arrested on July 14 at his Los Feliz residence by LAPD officers. Weinberg allegedly assaulted numerous women between 2012 and 2019, according to an arrest report. However, detectives believe victims date back to the 1990s.
According to the report, Weinberg would lure women to his house under the guise of a picture session before assaulting them. From the late 1990s through 2016, Weinberg was a consistent presence in writers’ rooms. Most notably, he served as co-executive producer on over 100 episodes of the hit NBC show Scrubs from 2002 to 2006.
Eric played the same role in Showtime’s David Duchovny vehicle Californication and FX’s Anger Management, starring Charlie Sheen. He received five Emmy nominations for his work on Scrubs and Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher.
A new court date has not yet been set by the District Attorney’s office. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
