Charlie Sheen is Getting Sued for Punching Dental Assistant – Badboy Charlie Sheen has found himself in a bit of legal trouble after a dental technician claims he punched her in the chest and grabbed her bra and breast during an office visit.
The assistant, Margarita Palestino, is suing Charlie Sheen for damages related to the September 25th incident, which she claims was an assault and battery, sexual battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
According to her, Sheen ripped off his nitrous oxide mask, jumped out of his chair, and screamed “I’m going to f****ng kill you!” while lunging at her and two other doctors with a knife. When she, Dr. George Bogen, and Dr. Jaime Azdair tried putting the mask back on him, Palestino says that’s when Sheen grabbed her “left breast area” and her bra strap, trying to pull it down.
Palestino also alleges that Charlie Sheen’s assistant offered her $500 for having to deal with the incident.
Jeff Balard, Charlie Sheen‘s publicist, stated that Sheen was suffering side effects from the combination of nitrous oxide and pain meds (for his injured shoulder). The drugs caused him to knock over some dental equipment but he did not punch or grab Palestino. Marty Singer, Charlie’s lawyer, thinks Palestino’s suit is just an attempt to get fame and money.
The Los Angeles Police Department has launched an investigation into the incident. So far the LAPD has given no comments.
