"Bruno" Sued for Violent Attack

Posted: June 3rd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Bruno" Sued for Violent AttackSubmit Comment
TMZ is reporting that Sacha Baron Cohen is being sued by a woman who was allegedly attacked and crippled by him during the filming of "Bruno" at a Bingo hall in 2007.

Richelle Olson has sued Cohen, NBC Universal and others claiming they told her Bruno was a celebrity and would appear and call numbers at the charity bingo game she ran for the elderly in Palmdale, CA. Olson was not 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 others 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."

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."

The suit says Olson was rushed to the hospital with a "diagnosis of 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.

Richelle Olson needs to get laid (as obviously she hasn't been since V.E. Day!). Bruno IS a 'Celebrity' in his own right. And I'll bet she didn't mind being 'attacked' all that much (she just probably got flashbacks of when she'd take on of platoon of German Soldiers in the barracks during the Great WWII!)! f*cking, crusty, dried-up, biach! Drag this out in court until the old buzzard croaks.

Abusing elderly people is soooooooooo funny!! GENIUS! He should have a new character where that's all he does with a....a japanese accent!- Or maybe he could do 2 or 3 more Jackass movies!

Do you ever think that Cohen goes too far for a simple laugh?
masKritic writes:
on June 4th, 2009 at 12:00:03 PM

he doesn't go too far. He likes getting into this trouble because nobody has a legitimate reason to sue him. In fact he's the only celebrity that CAN go this far. No one else can pull it off.

One to five minutes? Thats a pretty big difference. Also, she passed out and hit the floor? If that little stress put her in a state that knocked her out she had worse ailments than "embarrassment"
