Sexual assault allegations against actor Scott Baio will be reviewed by the Los Angeles County District Attorney, TMZ reports. The allegations from actress Nicole Eggert stem from their time on “Charles in Charge,” and Baio has repeatedly denied Eggert’s claims.
Eggert filed a police report claiming Baio molested her on multiple occasions, including a claim that she was as young as 14 when the alleged molestation occurred, TMZ reports.
“Baio insists he had sex with Eggert only once … when she was 18,” TMZ adds.
The report adds: “Alexander Polinsky, another star of ‘Charles in Charge,’ came out in support of Eggert, claiming that he not only witnessed Baio harassing Eggert … but, he was also a victim of Baio’s sexual misconduct. He claimed Scott called him a ‘f****t’ and pulled down his pants ‘in front of over 100 people’ on set.”
The report quotes a rep for Baio saying: “Scott Baio is grateful to LAPD for a timely investigation. They were presented many pieces of evidence and statements that contradicted and undermined Nicole Eggert’s untrue claims. Scott is now looking forward to the DA’s review and statement concluding this matter.”
