A woman who was found locked in the bathroom of Charlie Sheen’s Manhattan hotel suite last month has said she is suing the actor for battery and false imprisonment.
Capri Anderson, appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America show, said she plans to file a criminal report with New York City police.
The adult film actress said Sheen yelled racial slurs, threw a lamp at her and grabbed her by the throat.
The 45-year-old actor had a brief stay in hospital after security at the Plaza Hotel reported he was disorderly and broke furniture in his room.
The troubled star voluntarily went with authorities for a psychiatric evaluation, and was released from the hospital the same day. His publicist, Stan Rosenfield, said at the time that Sheen had an adverse reaction to medication.
Anderson told Good Morning America host George Stephanopoulos that she had been hired for 3,500 dollars to join Sheen for dinner on October 25. She described as “absolutely untrue” reports that she expected to be paid for sex.
She said Sheen became increasingly unruly as the evening wore on.
“It’s hard to say, being that it was my first time hanging out with him, if it was normal everyday behaviour for him,” she said.
After dinner at a restaurant, she accompanied the “fairly intoxicated” Sheen back to his hotel suite, where “there was a little bit of romance, if you will”.
But in the room Sheen became increasingly agitated, including making racial slurs she didn’t specify.
