ANTHONY ANDERSON ACCUSED OF ASSAULT
The Los Angeles Police Department has opened an investigation with “Black-ish” star Anthony Anderson listed as a suspect accused for assault.
The investigation stems from a woman who told the department that Anderson assaulted her after she catered one of his events. In a statement, a spokesperson for Anderson denied the allegations and said his team was not made aware of any investigation. “It’s unfortunate that anyone can file a police report whether it is true or false,” the spokesperson said. “The authorities have not contacted Anthony or any of his representatives about this matter. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim.”
Citing “sources familiar with the investigation,” The Blast said a woman walked into the LAPD’s Hollywood Division earlier this year and filed the report. The Blast said it was told the incident happened over a year ago, after the met the actor at his event. ABC and Disney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
