From CBC - February 15, 2018

Scott Baio "is denying each and every one of the allegations" made against him by two of his former co-stars on Charles in Charge,his spokesman said Wednesday.

Brian Glicklich read a brief statement from Baio at a news conference held in response to the latest claim of misconduct.

Former Charles in Chargeactor Alexander Polinsky said at a news conference earlier in the day that Baio assaulted and "mentally tortured" him when he was a child star on the show in the 1980s. He said Baio exposed himself, discussed gay sex acts and once threw a hot cup of tea in his face.

Another star of the series, Nicole Eggert, came forward last month with claims that Baio sexually assaulted her when she was a minor while they were working together.

Baio called those allegations false and said he and Eggert were involved in a consensual relationship when she was of legal age.
