God of War Actor Arrested After Allegations Of “Sexually Exlicit Communication with a Minor”
According to the LAPD, Joseph Gatt, actor and comedian, was arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department in April 2022. He was accused of having “sexually explicit communication across state lines” with a minor.
Gatt is most well-known for his portrayal of Then Warg on HBO’s Game of Thrones. However, the actor has worked extensively in video games, including motion capture for Kratos in God of War III and God of War 3: Chains of Olympus.
According to a statement by the LAPD detectives from the department’s Judiciary Division, Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force conducted a residential warrant search at Gatt’s home. They are now asking for any additional victims to come forward after Gatt’s arrest.
After posting $5,000 bail, the actor, who is from Los Angeles, was released. In a statement posted on Instagram and Twitter, Gatt denied all allegations.
Gatt stated, “I want to address these absolutely horrifying and completely false allegations against me,” Gatt continued. They are reckless and categorically wrong. Today’s press release contains misleading and inaccurate information. I have confirmed this. I will fully cooperate with the LAPD and police to solve this. I look forward to clearing my name.”
He said, “Thanks to all my friends and supporters, who know this is false and understand for legal reasons. I cannot comment further social media.”
