Charlie Sheen sued over 'incident' at dentist's

A US dental technician who says actor Charlie Sheen punched her in the chest during an office visit is suing him for assault and battery.

Margarita Palestino filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles, seeking unspecified damages from the Anger Management star.

Her lawsuit accuses Sheen of attacking her during a dental appointment on September 25, including punching her in the chest and grabbing her bra.

Los Angeles police said that they have an active investigation into the incident, but could not release further details.

Sheen’s publicist Jeff Ballard referred calls Friday to the actor’s lawyer, Marty Singer, who was not available for comment.

Sheen had an adverse reaction to the combination of nitrous oxide and pain medication he was taking for a shoulder injury and knocked over dental instruments, Mr Ballard said on Thursday.

But other elements of the woman’s story were not true, Mr Ballard added.
