In a press conference summoned on Wednesday afternoon, Scott Baio denied all allegations of sexual misconduct and child abuse, and threatened the accuser, saying:
I will pursue all legal options against “anyone who has knowingly made false claims.”
Earlier in the day, two of his co-stars of the hit ’80s sitcom Charles in Charge; Nicole Eggert and Alexander Polinsky, accused Scott Baio of sexual misconduct and child abuse. In the press conference held by the two along with the lawyer Lisa Bloom, Polinsky claimed of homophobic bullying, and other slurs by Baio and Eggert claimed of sexual abuse by Scott when her age was only 17.
Scott Baio did not attend the L.A. press conference as he was attending his daughter’s school events with his family. His civil attorney, Jennifer McGrath, and a spokesman, Brian Glicklich released a statement on behalf of Baio saying:
For reasons I don’t understand, I am the target of false claims that threaten everything that is important in my life. I am hurt and I am angry, but mostly, I am stunned that anybody can be so cruel to attack not just me, but my family.
Questioning the credibility of Polinsky and Eggert, Baio’s reps continued:
Scott denies every single claim of inappropriate behavior and there is absolutely nothing when you examine the facts and the evidence and the claims that have been made — almost every one of them can be refuted with evidence
LAPD is investigating the claims, and Baio’s reps have assured that Baio will fully cooperate with LAPD investigations.
