The Los Angeles D.A.'s office is reviewing a second sexual assault case against Steven Seagal.
In January, two women told media outlets that they'd filed rape charges against the former action star. Shortly after, the D.A.'s office said it was reviewing one case, but this is a new case. However, the D.A. hasn't said whether this is a separate accusation or just an additional charge stemming from those January allegations.
Seagal, who has Russian citizenship, was recently appointed as a liaison by that country to help improve relations with the U.S.

Macaulay Culkin passed up on the most successful show on TV -- and he has no regrets.
On Joe Rogan's podcast, the Home Alone star said he was asked three times to star in The Big Bang Theory. "It was kind of like, the way the pitch was, ‘Alright, these two astrophysicist nerds and a pretty girl lives with them. Yoinks!’ That was the pitch. And I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m cool, thanks.’ And then they came back at me again, and I said, ‘No, no, no. Again, flattered, but no.’ Then they came back at me again, and even my manager was like twisting my arm."
Despite the success of the show, he doesn’t regret turning down the sitcom. Macaulay said, “I’d have hundreds of millions of dollars right now if I did that gig. At the same time, I’d be bashing my head against the wall.”
Big Bang Theory stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar all make $1 million an episode.

Rascal Flatts' concert in Noblesville, Indiana last night  was cut short when fans were asked to evacuate the venue before the group's encore. 
Concertgoer, Britni Sherlock tells the Indianapolis Star,  "Everyone booed. We continued to wait in the pavilion, and that’s when security came up to everyone and told us to leave. I asked what was going on and he replied, 'We were told to evacuate the pavilion immediately.'"
The band tweeted this morning (Friday), "The safety of our fans, band and crew is always the top priority for us, so we are so thankful for everyone who jumped into action and for your understanding. We will be back soon!"
The local sheriff's office says an investigation is under way, but no details of what led to the evacuation have been given.
