'Charles in Charge' Cast Member Backs Nicole Eggert Claims Against Scott Baio

'Charles in Charge' Cast Member Backs Nicole Eggert Claims Against Scott Baio

The actress, known for her role in the '80s sitcom "Charles in Charge", has spoken out about the alleged abuse she suffered at the hands of Baio, and on Tuesday, she filed a police report with the Los Angeles Police Department, according to TMZ.

"Yesterday Nicole Eggert and I met with two police detectives from the sexual assault unit at my law firm", Bloom said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Baio tells ET that the actor is glad Eggert has gone to the police with her allegations.

Eggert was reportedly accompanied by fellow "Charles in Charge" star Alexander Polinsky who told detectives he witnessed some of the alleged abuse.

Eggert's attorney, Lisa Bloom, did not respond when USA TODAY sought clarification about the statute of limitation for underage sex in effect at the time of the encounter between Eggert and Baio, when she was in her teens and he was in his 20s.

Scott Baio is glad Nicole Eggert made a decision to tell her story to someone other than Megyn Kelly or Dr. Oz, because the LAPD will now get to the bottom of her accusations. It's good that she finally has, even if it's part of a publicity campaign. "If we want to change the culture, we have to bring out the truth, take back control from the abusers and make them listen to the pain of their victims".

Eggert's longtime manager David Weintraub also says that his client is "feeling positive" after her conversation with detectives, and that "people are standing by her". "She told me it was much worse than she described on air".

Nicole Eggert is opening up about a painful period in her life.

Eggert says her teenage daugher has also been very supportive.

Bloom continued, "We appreciate the Los Angeles police detectives' interest in this case, and we will fully cooperate with their investigation". Bloom also provided police with a list of witnesses who will corroborate Eggert's claims.

While sitting down with Megyn Kelly last week, Eggert alleged that Baio first penetrated her while sitting in his vehicle at 14-years-old, and after that, sexually abused her "probably once a week" until she turned 16. Eggert explained her allegations - that Baio molested her when she was 14, 15, and 16 during taping of their TV show. 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.

The following week, Eggert appeared on both Megyn Kelly Today and The Dr. Oz Show, where she further detailed her claims.

"How any of this could have happened is absolutely impossible". In her report, she claimed that Scott sexually abused her when she was a minor.

Neither Baio nor his reps have returned calls for comment.
