Nicole Eggert Files Police Report Against 'Charles in Charge' Costar Scott Baio

Nicole Eggert And Scott Baio

The actress, 46, filed a police report on Tuesday accusing Baio, 57, of sexually abusing her when she was a minor, reports TMZ.

Despite Baio repeatedly denying the allegations, Eggert hired attorney Lisa Bloom to investigate the abuse, which she originally claimed on Twitter began when she was just 14 years old.

"We've been demanding since past year that Nicole Eggert bring her story to the authorities", Glicklich said in a statement.

"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". Among the witnesses: Alexander Polinsky, who played Adam Powell on the show, according to TMZ. I witnessed Scott Baio acting inappropriately towards Nicole Eggert during my first year of working on the show. Her appearance on Dr. Oz had also been stalled while the producers vetted the allegations; her interview was initially filmed on January 10, but didn't air until after both Eggert and Baio went public with their claims. She continues, "I'm sobbing and I looked at it, and I said to myself, 'It's not a legit bridge, you're not going to die, you're going to break a lot of bones and you're not even going to kill yourself. I had to sit down and tell her why there were all these cameras outside of our house, and why people keep on asking me these questions", she says.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Baio tells ET that the actor is glad Eggert has gone to the police with her allegations. We provided a list of those names to the police. "If anyone else has information about this matter please contact us", Bloomd continued. He has posted video on social media in which he denied her allegations and waved around documents that he says prove she was above the age of consent at the time. "I apologised for pushing her too hard and should have been more sympathetic". Baio was in his mid-20s at the time while the actress was in her teens.

"It took Nicole a long time to come to the decision that she wanted to let the world know what Scott Baio did to her and it's been very freeing for her to finally talk about what happened", a representative for Eggert added to Page Six.

"We've been demanding since a year ago that Nicole Eggert bring her story to the authorities", a statement read. "Perhaps she can explain to them her ever-changing story".

"How any of this could have happened is absolutely impossible", he added.

"In those days I had moments of being so hurt and so upset, and even thoughts of ending my life", she says.

TMZ reports that police will look into her claims and try to interview Baio, but as the incidents allegedly occurred between 1986 and 1990, the statute of limitations may have run out.

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