Update: The New York Times reports that Harvey Weinstein is expected to turn himself in to authorities in Manhattan Friday morning.

Investigators were preparing to arrest Weinstein "after a monthslong inquiry into allegations that he sexually assaulted numerous women," according to the newspaper.

Sources told the New York Daily News that the charges are related to one of Weinstein's many accusers, Lucia Evans, who reportedly told authorities that Weinstein forced her into performing oral sex on him in 2004. The statute of limitations does not apply because of the type of allegations in this case.

Original Story (March 13, 2018): Since media reports exposed decades of alleged abuse by Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced Hollywood producer has reportedly been hiding out in Arizona.

The 65-year-old enrolled in a 45-day program at Gentle Path at the Meadows, an inpatient, male-only treatment center on 38 acres in Wickenburg, Arizona, the New York Times reports, noting that Weinstein didn't make it all 45 days. (Other clients at the facility, which charges $58,000 for 45 days of therapy, have reportedly included Tiger Woods and Kevin Spacey).

There are 28 beds at the facility, and residents start their days with meditation after waking at 6:30 a.m. Weinstein, the Times says, "has been waking up early, checking in with his East Coast lawyers and then going down to a juice shop where he orders coffee and a green detox mix with kale and cucumber."

Weinstein's representative told Vanity Fair that he completed the 45-day program early and has been getting additional treatment for "anger management, nutrition, and several addiction-related behaviors."

According to the Los Angeles Times, Weinstein moved to a luxury apartment at the Optima Sonoran Village complex in Scottsdale, which boasts "an indoor lap pool, a 24-hour gym with an indoor basketball court, spas and concierge service." He's reportedly taken to the almond cookies at the health-food store on the apartment building's lower level, Kaleidoscope Juice.

When he went out for dinner in January at Elements, a restaurant in Scottsdale, a fellow diner slapped him in the face after Weinstein reportedly declined to take a photograph. Last month, he was spotted at an Olive Garden in Scottsdale.

Back on the East Coast, Weinstein's real-estate holdings seem to be dwindling. The 9,000-square-foot Hamptons mansion he owned in Amagansett reportedly sold for $10 million in January after originally being listed for $17.5 million. And just last week, Variety reported that he sold his waterfront compound on nearly six acres in Westport, Connecticut for $16 million in an off-market deal.

A planned sale of his production company is not going as well, however. Another deal to save the Weinstein Company collapsed last week after the group of investors that had agreed to purchase it said it had received "disappointing information."

Weinstein himself was also reportedly facing criminal investigations in Los Angeles, New York, and London as of last month, and the list of his accusers has grown to 84 women. 

"We're ready to go with an arrest," a New York Police Department official told the Daily Beast last week. Whether they move forward with it remains to be seen.
