‘Dances With Wolves’ actor arrested in Nevada sex abuse case

NORTH LAS VEGAS (AP) – Las Vegas police have arrested former actor Nathan Chasing Horse at his home after uncovering what they describe as two decades of sexual assault and human trafficking allegations. Chasing Horse is best known for his role in the Oscar-winning Kevin Costner film Dances With Wolves. Police say he made a name for himself among tribes in the United States and Canada as a so-called medicine man and used his position to abuse young Native American girls. Chasing Horse is accused of sexually assaulting girls as young as 13 and taking women as young as 15. Police say the assaults took place in several states, including Nevada, and Canada. No attorney was immediately listed for him in court filings Tuesday.
