L.A. Restaurateur Josh Woodward Arrested For Causing Miscarriage

All I have to say on this one is wow. Just, wow.

L.A. restaurateur Josh Woodward stands accused of causing the miscarriage of a woman said to have been pregnant with his child.

According to the search warrant affidavit obtained by TMZ, police believe Josh Woodward used a drug called Misoprostol to cause the miscarriage.

In the docs, Woodward’s baby mama says one night back in October — when she was pregnant — Woodward kept putting his hand in a plastic bag and then touching her sexually.

The woman says she lost the baby a few hours later … and remembers seeing a white powdery substance on her underwear.

According to the affidavit, cops had reason to believe the powder was a drug called Misoprostol — which is often used for early abortions and to induce labor. Cops then executed the warrant and set up a sting operation.

Now get this: Under police supervision, the woman called Woodward — who did not know she had lost the baby — and told him she was still pregnant and wanted him to come over.

According to the affidavit, when police approached Woodward outside of her apartment, he pulled out a “small piece of clear plastic with a white powdery substance” from his pocket and dropped it on the ground.

Police seized the substance — which Woodward would not identify — and arrested him. Cops are waiting on the test results of the substance, but believe it’s Misoprostol. Woodward has yet to be charged with a crime.


Like I said before, wow. Sounds like something out of a movie – or Law & Order I’ll keep you posted on this one for sure.
