Sacha Cohen Sued

TMZ.com is reporting that a woman has sued actor Sacha Baron Cohen after she was attacked and allegedly left "crippled" by the "Bruno" star.

"Richelle Olson has sued Cohen, NBC Universal and others claiming they told her Bruno was a celeb and would appear and call numbers at the bingo game she ran for the elderly in Palmdale, CA. Olson was none too happy when she saw Bruno, whom she describes as an "extreme, outrageous, offensive caricature of a gay man dressed in sexually revealing clothing with an Austrian accent..." 



"Olson alleges Bruno used "vulgar and offensive language" and when she tried taking the mic from him, a "physical struggle ensued" and Cohen "offensively touched, pushed and battered" her, causing her to fall to the ground.

She then claims three cameramen and otheres rushed the stage. ... where defendants attacked [her] for a period of one to five minutes to intentionally create a dramatic emotional response ... while [they] recorded her humiliation and embarrassment."



Further reports indicate that Ms. Olson was taken into another room where she was "sobbing uncontrollably" then was rendered unconscious.

After the alleged assault was over, the suit says Olson went into another room where she was "sobbing uncontrollably" ... then was rendered unconscious ... "falling forward onto the thinly covered concrete slab, passing out and causing her to hit her head."



According to TMZ.com, Olseon was diagnosed with two brain bleeds -- and that she has been confined to a wheelchair and walker ever since.



Olson and her husband are suing for unspecified damages, including loss of marital relations.

Gambling911.com reported Tuesday that Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul and an ally to the online gambling sector was also the subject of a Sacha Cohen prank.  Paul suggested his supporters might be disappointed that he did not punch Sacha in the face after attempting to seduce the Congressman on a film set designed to look like a hotel room.

"Bruno" is due out in theatres next month.
