Adult film actress accuses Charlie Sheen of assault
NEW YORK (Reuters) - A porn star who locked herself in the bathroom last month in the midst of a drunken rampage by actor Charlie Sheen at New York's Plaza Hotel said on Monday she will file civil charges against the actor for assault.
Capri Anderson accused the "Two and a Half Men" star of grabbing her around the neck and throwing things at her.
"I never expected that the night would unfold the way it did," Anderson told TV chat show "Good Morning America" on Monday. She said would file a lawsuit in Los Angeles civil court later on Monday for false imprisonment and assault.
In October, Sheen was found by police acting drunk and incoherent in a hotel suite that had broken furniture. He was taken to a hospital but was not arrested and no criminal charges were filed against him.
Sheen's publicist said on Monday that Anderson's allegations were "completely false" and accused her of concocting a story for money.
"Ms. Capri never made any allegation to the police of any wrongful conduct on the part of Mr. Sheen the night of the incident and she had every opportunity to do so She also posted on her website that she was 'fine'," the actor's publicist said in a statement.
"If she pursues legal action, we will defend this vigorously. These allegations against Mr. Sheen are completely false, and are a blatant attempt to cash in on his celebrity," the statement added.
Anderson told the "Good Morning America" on Monday she was promised $3500 to make a "dinner appearance" at a New York restaurant. She said the 45-year-old actor became increasingly intoxicated at the restaurant, speaking in a "vulgar" way while making several trips to the bathroom.
When they returned to the hotel, she said he snorted a "white powdery substance," before she initially, willingly began to have "a little bit of romance". Continued...
