Actor Gary Busey was caught on camera pulling his pants down and then sticking his hands under himself while sitting on a Malibu ocean-view bench while his rep said that he probably needed to relieve himself.
Busey, 78, was left a changed man after a major motorcycle crash in 1988 which nearly resulted in his death.
The day before the bench incident, the actor had been charged with four counts of sexual contact and harassment after numerous women reported incidents at a horror convention in New Jersey.
On Saturday morning, Busey, who was once nominated for an Oscar for his part in the 1978 movie The Buddy Holly Story, was filmed sitting on a public bench outside of his beach-fronted Malibu home in Point Dume Park.
The footage shows Busey making his way to the bench which boasted a sea view while smoking a cigar. Once seated, he lowers his pants, puts his hand between his legs and appears to grimace.
Wearing a Point Break movie t-shirt, in which he had a supporting role, the disgraced actor then sheepishly looked around to check if anyone had caught him in the act.
“Gary often sits on the bench in front of his home to meditate and look at the ocean,” his spokesman told Page Six on Tuesday.

“Our only guess is that perhaps at his age, he realized he couldn’t get to the bathroom in time which explains what happened in the video of him on the bench.”
After completing the lewd act, Busey remained sitting on the bench for about half an hour, watching the ocean and taking in the scenery, before making his way back to his car.
It comes just a day after Busey had been charged with criminal sexual contact and harassment after he allegedly groped women at the annual Monster Mania Convention at the Doubletree Hotel in Cherry Hill, NJ.
“It was about contact. It was about touching,” said Cherry Hill police Lt. Robert Scheunemann, adding that there had been “multiple complaints” about Busey at the convention, where he signed autographs alongside other actors including Ralph Macchio, Tom Skerritt, and Veronica Cartwright.
According to the convention’s organizers, Busey was “immediately upon receiving a complaint from the attendees, the celebrity guest was removed from the convention and instructed not to return,” presumably before the allegations had been investigated.
“Monster-Mania also encouraged the attendees to contact the police to file a report. The safety and well-being of all our attendees is of the utmost importance to Monster-Mania, and the company will not tolerate any behavior that could compromise those values.”
Busey is an established actor having bagged numerous roles in big movies including Point Break, Under Siege, Lethal Weapon, and Predator 2.
He is married to Steffanie Sampson and the couple has a 12-year-old son, Luke. He also has two older children from a previous marriage, Jake, 51, and Alectra, 28.
His son, Jake, said his father’s motorbike accident in the 1980s significantly changed his father’s personality.
Busey’s injuries included severe brain damage which left him “more impulsive and prone to anger and delusions of grandeur”.
Jake went on to say that after the crash, the damage to his father’s brain was so severe that he was left like “a vegetable in a wheelchair staring at the wall”.
“At 17, I had to teach him with my mom to talk, to eat, to feed himself. To walk again. To write. That was very difficult for me at that age.
“The post-accident version of him turned his personality up to 11,” Jake continued.
“I feel like I lost my dad on December 4, 1988.”
