Dennis Rodman, Las Vegas and Police - Saturday 24th February 2007

* RODMAN ACCUSED OF HARASSING HOTEL EMPLOYEE Former basketball star DENNIS RODMAN has been accused of sexually harassing a hotel employee in Las Vegas. Sara Robinson, a former bar manager at the Hard Rock Hotel, has filed a lawsuit against the sportsman over a March 2006 incident, claiming he slapped her on the bottom and rubbed himself against her at the resort. The lawsuit alleges, "As Robinson stepped around the bar, Rodman grabbed her, pulled her towards him and rubbed his body against hers. "Robinson tried to get free from Rodman's grasp at which time he assaulted her by reaching down and slapping her open-handed on the bottom." The complaint, which seeks unspecified damages, also claims Robinson was fired unfairly by the Hard Rock chain after filing a statement detailing Rodman's actions following a separate incident at the same venue in April 2006, in which he is accused of 'causing a scene'. The document accuses Rodman of assault and battery, and the Hard Rock Hotel of negligence by failing to protect her from Rodman's "harassing conduct". It's not the first assault allegation faced by the sports star - in September this year (07), Rodman faced a police investigation over claims he smacked a waitress' bottom at a restaurant in Los Angeles.
