Another former 'Charles in Charge' actor claims abuse by Scott Baio

Scott Baio Sexual Assult Accusations Press Conference

The former child star did not go into details, but he wanted to talk to Baio about the abuse that he suffered and witnessed on the set of Charles in Charge. He said Baio once pulled down his trousers in front of more than 100 people, and another time he allegedly exposed himself to Polinsky.

He said the abuse began when he was 11 after he stumbled upon Baio acting inappropriately with costar Nicole Eggert, then 14.

"I was sexually harassed by Scott Baio and ultimately assaulted by him between the ages of 12 and 15 years old", Polinsky said, according to E!

He also detailed an incident in which Baio called him a "f.t". He told reporters that Baio repeatedly told him about gay sex acts and boasted of his sexual conquests with young girls and female co-stars. She later told Inside Edition that she believes she was "groomed by Scott Baio". Nicole Eggert is on the far right.

The series Charles in Charge aired between 1984 and 1990; in the wake of his fame from the iconic comedy Happy Days, at the time Baio was arguably at the height of his celebrity power.

Polinksy, now 43, played a friend of Eggert's character on the show, with Baio, now 57, as the headliner playing a college student living with a family as a babysitter.

"As an adult I carry huge guilt that I was a part of this in any way", Eggert said.

Over time, the younger actor came to view Baio's behavior toward him as a form of "mental torture", retaliation for that early encounter with Baio and Eggert.

On Twitter on Wednesday, Baio wrote, "I've tried my best to let the proper authorities handle this matter".

Representatives from the sexual assault unit of the Los Angeles Police Department have already taken a statement from Eggert. The LAPD has confirmed to USA TODAY that they are looking into the allegations. Eggert said an apology might be in order. Baio has also hired a criminal attorney, who was not present at today's press conference. "It now seems they want a "horse & pony" show".

Baio live-streamed the news conference on his Facebook page but did not attend. Baio has denied Eggert's accusations.

Brian Glicklich read a brief statement from Baio at a news conference held in response to the latest claim of misconduct.

The allegations "threaten everything that's important in my life", the statement said.
