Nicole Eggert takes her sex allegations against Scott Baio to police

A representative for Baio, 57, told tmz.com, which first reported the filing: "We've been demanding since previous year that Nicole Eggert bring her story to the authorities". Earlier, Baio had urged her to present her claims to the proper authorities.

While the statute of limitations was up, she said the move was empowering.

"Nicole answered all of their questions and told her story of sexual abuse by Scott Baio when she was a minor", Bloom said in a statement to the Daily News.

In an interview with Megyn Kelly last month, 46-year-old Eggert claimed that Baio expressed interest in her immediately when she began filming Charles in Charge in September 1986.

Nicole Eggert reportedly has taken her complaints of molestation against actor Scott Baio to the police, after she first made the accusations public weeks ago. "If anyone else has information about this matter please contact us", Bloom added.

The actress alluded to her meeting with LAPD in a post on social media. Baio was in his mid-20s at the time while the actress was in her teens. Both also have gone on rival morning programs to hurl accusations and denials at each other. Her appearance on Dr. Oz had also been stalled while the producers vetted the allegations; her interview was initially filmed on January 10, but didn't air until after both Eggert and Baio went public with their claims.

"I was 15 years old standing on the bridge over the L.A. River at Ventura and Vineland in Studio City, and I looked down at that dry river bed and I'm sobbing, I'm sobbing", she said. I forgive myself and I forgive him to move on and have peace, but the calling me a liar and the shaming and the slut shaming they are doing to me, that needs to stop.

"I don't know if you've ever been on a sitcom set, but on any given day - on every day - and especially Charles in Charge, which was like a picnic every day. there's teachers, parents, family, crew, producers, my dad", Baio told GMA's Amy Robach. Eggert has lawyered up with cutthroat, high-profile attorney Lisa Bloom, who confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the former Baywatch babe has filed a police report against Baio on Tuesday.

"How any of this could have happened is absolutely impossible", he added. While he denied having a sexual relationship when she was underage, he did say that the two had consensual sex "well after she turned 18".

Neither Baio nor his reps have returned calls for comment.
