Oh, how the once mighty have fallen.

Harvey Weinstein turned himself in to authorities Friday morning and was arrested and processed on charges of rape, committing a criminal sex act, sexual abuse, and sexual misconduct, according to the New York Police Department.
The charges stem from incidents with two separate women, the NYPD said in a statement and were the result of a joint investigation between police and the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
Weinstein is expected to appear in court later in the day.
The former Hollywood producer walked into a New York police precinct office through a flurry of reporters and photographers, carrying what appeared to be books.
It was a scene not unlike the red carpet walks he used to do, further highlighting how far he has fallen since dozens of women came forward in the New York Times and the New Yorker to publicly accuse him of sexual misconduct.
After being processed, Weinstein left the precinct office, his hands cuffed behind his back, and got into a large black SUV.
Weinstein’s bond is expected to be set at $2 million, according to a law enforcement source.
The allegations from two brave women have brought Weinstein into police custody, but there are literally dozens of other women who will soon come forward to see that he never sees the light of day again.
Weinstein is just the latest trophy collected by the #MeToo movement, but there is no doubt that he is far from the last.
