Alexander Polinsky, who started working on 'Charles in Charge' at 11, claims Baio "laughed as he cut a hole in my dressing room and exposed his genitals to me" https://t.co/Za8y0SK0Id— Hollywood Reporter (@THR) February 14, 2018
Alexander Polinsky, who started working on Charles in Charge at age 11, filed his own accusations against Scott Baio with the LAPD to back up co-star Nicole Eggert’s allegations. He claims the pattern of abuse started after he walked in on Baio and Eggert when Eggert was only 14. The abuse lasted from age 12 to 15. Details under the cut — warning, content is very triggering.
- Baio repeatedly called him homophobic slurs, described homosexual acts in detail to him, and bragged about his “sexual conquests with young women.”
- Baio pulled his pants down on set.
- Baio cut a hole in Polinsky’s private changing area, sticking his own genitals through the whole.
- Polinsky startled Baio backstage, and Baio then threw a cup of hot coffee in his face. Baio apologized, but what Polinsky called “sexual hazing” continued to happen thereafter.
