A former “Dances With Wolves” actor accused of sexually abusing Indigenous girls has faced a judge for the first time since his arrest. After a brief hearing Thursday, the judge ordered Nathan Chasing Horse held without bail until his next court hearing Monday. The 46-year-old faces sex trafficking, sexual assault and child abuse charges. Clark County prosecutors have not said when he will be formally charged. At his next hearing, another judge is expected to address his custody status and could set bail after hearing from prosecutors, FBI agents, victims and Chasing Horse's relatives. He is known for his role as a young Sioux tribe member in the Oscar-winning Kevin Costner film.

Former actor Nathan Chasing Horse could be facing sexual assault and sex trafficking charges. Chasing Horse, known for his role in the Oscar-winning Kevin Costner film “Dances With Wolves," was arrested Tuesday near Las Vegas. He remains jailed Wednesday. Police say he built himself a reputation as a so-called medicine man and used that position to abuse young Native American girls and women. Police accuse him of sexually assaulting girls as young as 13 and taking wives as young as 15. Police say he also instructed his wives to take what he called suicide pills and to use firearms to “shoot it out” with officers if they ever tried to arrest him.

Tom Brady has officially retired from the National Football League. Based on his new movie “80 For Brady,” it's also time that he immediately retire from filmmaking, says Associated Press critic Mark Kennedy. No one emerges with glory from this syrupy, undercooked story of four older friends who are determined to see Brady lead an astonishing come-from-behind win at the 2017 Super Bowl. A quartet of our finest actors — Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno and Sally Field— are sacrificed for cheap laughs and unearned poignancy. And Brady, an executive producer, sullies one of his greatest triumphs.
