Charlie Sheen sued by dental technician for assault and battery
Charlie Sheen is being sued by a dental technician for assault and battery after punching her in the chest during an office visit.
Margarita Palestino filed the lawsuit on October 3 in Los Angeles seeking unspecified damages from Charlie Sheen.
Her lawsuit accuses Charlie Sheen of attacking her during a dental appointment on September 25, including punching her in the chest and grabbing her clothes.
Los Angeles police said on October 2 that they have an active investigation into the incident, but could not release further details.
Charlie Sheen had an adverse reaction to the combination of nitrous oxide and pain medication he was taking for a shoulder injury and he knocked over dental instruments, the actor’s publicist, Jeff Ballard, said on October 2. However, other elements of Margarita Palestino’s story were not true, Jeff Ballard said.
