Woman Files Suit Against Rodman

May 21, 1999

LAS VEGAS (AP) _ A casino security guard has filed a lawsuit against basketball star Dennis Rodman, accusing him of grabbing her breast while she was working at the Las Vegas Hilton.

Donna Ehlert claims in the lawsuit filed Wednesday that Rodman embarrassed and humiliated her when he grabbed and shook her breast in front of a crowd of people last November.

``At the time of sexually assaulting the plaintiff, the defendant was making lewd comments in the presence of numerous patrons, spectators and other employees,″ the lawsuit claims.

Ehlert seeks unspecified damages in the case.

A spokesman for Rodman did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Three lawsuits filed in Las Vegas in June 1998 involve allegations about Rodman’s behavior in casinos.

A Las Vegas Hilton employee accused him of grabbing her sides near her breasts and lifting her off the ground in April 1998.

Another Las Vegas woman accused Rodman of sexually assaulting her in April 1998 at the Las Vegas Hilton by grabbing one of her breasts and shaking it.

A craps dealer at The Mirage filed a lawsuit alleging Rodman humiliated him at work by rubbing his groin and head.

Rodman played for the Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls before joining the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this year. The Lakers waived him in April.
