PHILADELPHIA -- Bill Cosby has tweeted a brief message to fans following his arrest on a sexual assault charge.
The message says, "Friends and fans, Thank You.
The 78-year-old comedian was charged this week with drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in 2004 inside his home near Philadelphia. It's the first criminal case brought against Cosby out of the torrent of allegations that destroyed his good-guy image as America's Dad.
Cosby's attorney has said the charge is unjustified and predicted his client will be exonerated.
Cosby is free on $1 million bail pending trial.
Friends and fans, Thank You.— Bill Cosby (@BillCosby) January 1, 2016
