LAS VEGAS (AP) _ A craps dealer is suing Dennis Rodman, saying the Chicago Bulls star humiliated him on the job last October by rubbing the dealer's head and chest.

James Brasich of the Mirage Hotel contends Rodman caused him ``embarrassment, indignity, degradation and anger.'' He is seeking damages in excess of $10,000.

The lawsuit was filed Friday. It was not clear why Brasich waited eight months to sue Rodman, whose team is playing the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals.

Rodman barely spoke to reporters Tuesday, darting off the court the moment practice ended at United Center

The lawsuit contends that while Rodman's friend was playing at Brasich's table, the Bulls forward grabbed the dice and rubbed them against his body.

The suit adds that Rodman stroked the dealer's head and chest, trying to get inside his shirt. Such actions, the lawsuit contends, amounted to battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
