Scott Baio’s former “Charles in Charge” co-star Nicole Eggert, who has accused Baio of molesting her when she was a minor, has now taken her accusations to the police, meeting Tuesday with the Los Angeles Police Department and saying that Baio sexually abused her when she was a minor, her attorney Lisa Bloom told TheWrap in a statement.
“Today Nicole Eggert and I met with two police detectives from the sexual assault unit at my law firm,” Bloom said. “Nicole answered all of their questions and told her story of sexual abuse by Scott Baio when she was a minor.”
In a tweet Tuesday, Eggert’s attorney, Lisa Bloom, said that they will “fully cooperate” with the police investigation.
Bloom added that many people have reached out saying that they observed Baio behaving inappropriately when Eggert was a minor.
Baio has repeatedly denied Eggert’s allegations. In a Facebook Live video in January,the actor said that Eggert “seduced me,” though she wasn’t a minor at the time.
“My reputation is being damaged, my family is being put through this, and I’m done,” Baio added.
