Belzer Questioned Over Store Attack

LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT star RICHARD BELZER has been questioned by police and released without charge after a New York woman accused him of attacking her at a Manhattan store.
Milan Agnew, a 21-year-old employee at an Apple store on the Upper West Side, claims Belzer, 65, entered the shop on Wednesday (10Mar10), grabbed her by the shoulders, shook her, choked her and yelled, "I need help!"
Agnew immediately called police and filed a harassment complaint.
According to the New York Daily News, Belzer was questioned by cops but was later released without charge, after reportedly telling officers he was "just joking".
But Agnew's grandmother, Anita MCKnight, is furious the actor will not face any charges, telling the newspaper, "She told me, 'Nana, he didn't just touch me, he choked me and really scared me.' My granddaughter is petite, just 5-feet-2 and she's a dancer so she doesn't have much body to her. Where does this man come off putting his hands on her?"
