Another former child actor has alleged abuse against former TV star Scott Baio while working on the set of the 1980s sitcom, “Charles in Charge.”
Alexander Polinsky, 43, discussed his allegations of physical and emotional abuse alongside his lawyer Lisa Bloom during a news conference Wednesday.
Polinsky, who played Adam Powell on the show, is the second person to accuse Baio of abuse while filming the show that ran from 1984 to 1990. Nicole Eggert took to Twitter to share her allegations of sexual molestation against Baio last month.
Baio, 57, has adamantly denied the sexual molestation accusations made by Eggert.
The actor, who also played Chachi on the 1970s hit TV show “Happy Days,” took to Facebook Wednesday to call the latest claims false and announce that he and his lawyer Brian Glicklich plan to hold a news conference to address the charges.
