Scott Baio 'Looking Forward' to LAPD Investigation After Nicole Eggert Files Report

Scott Baio 'Looking Forward' to LAPD Investigation After Nicole Eggert Files Report

The actress, 46, filed a police report on Tuesday accusing Baio, 57, of sexually abusing her when she was a minor, reports TMZ. While many tuned in to hear what she had to say, the talk show took an emotional turn when co-host Sara Gilbert read a statement by her good friend and witness to Scott Baio's allegedly abusive behavior with Nicole Eggert, Alex Polinsky. Baio quickly moved to deny her claims, posting a lengthy video via Facebook Live saying that she was at least 18 when they slept together.

The detectives also talked to Alexander Polinsky, another actor on Charles in Charge, in a separate interview at Bloom's office.

Eggert's lawyer reportedly gave detectives a list of witnesses who claimed to have also seen inappropriate behavior from Baio to Eggert. "Nicole Eggert, on national television today, acknowledged that she had no answer to the fact that her core claim of having underage sex was proven to be untrue in a 2013 radio interview, not just in her own words, but actually in her own voice". "And I told her what happened to me - not in grave detail - but that it happened to me and I want her to know that. if anybody even attempts anything like that, she knows that I will go to battle for her". It was clear; however, how heartbroken Sara was reading the abuse her friend had not only witnessed but also suffered according to his statement.

No additional information about the charges was provided by the police, including the specific allegation. "I apologised for pushing her too hard and should have been more sympathetic".

"Nicole didn't know what the statute of limitations was, but apparently the police are doing active investigations into a lot of these high-profile, older cases", the CEO of DWE Talent Management told THR. "Given her constantly changing story and continuous search for publicity, we look forward to their investigation".

The actress alluded to her meeting with LAPD in a post on social media.

At the time Baio was a massive teen star in the wake of his work on the iconic sitcom Happy Days; Eggert would go on to become one of the stars of Baywatch. "That's unconscionable." Nicole first made her allegation against Scott on January 27.

At one point, Nicole Eggert had placed her hand on Sara Gilbert's shoulder to lend support and comfort while she continued reading Alexander's account.

David Weintraub, Eggert's longtime manager of 15 years, added that Eggert walked away feeling positive after the conversation she had with the detectives.

In a statement to TMZ, Baio's reps said he's pleased Eggert has taken her claims to the police because he feels she'll now have to explain her "ever-changing story" on the record.

"How any of this could have happened is absolutely impossible", he added. "She told me it was much worse than she described on air".

Baio responded with an appearance on Good Morning America and repeated his denial of Eggert's claims.
