Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein is expected to surrender to New York police on sexual misconduct charges, US media report.
 
He faces arrest today (May 25) following an investigation, the reports say.
 
He has been hit with numerous allegations, including rape and sexual assault, but has denied non-consensual sex with anyone.
 
It would be the first time Weinstein has been charged since the accusations emerged.
 
The allegations triggered the #MeToo movement which sought to demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual abuse and harassment.
 
High-profile figures in the entertainment world have been accused, and on Thursday US film star Morgan Freeman apologized following allegations of sexual misconduct.
 
Weinstein will face charges over an allegation brought by actor Lucia Evans, the New York Times reported. It is not clear if he faces more charges brought by other accusers.
 
His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, has not commented on the report that his client would imminently turn himself in.
 
In November last year, New York police said they were investigating allegations of rape made by actress Paz de la Huerta against Weinstein.
