Sacha Baron Cohen Sued

Richelle Olson has sued Sacha Baron Cohen, claiming an incident at a charity bingo tournament that was filmed for the upcoming “Bruno” left her disabled.

From the Associated Press:

Olson claims she was severely injured after struggling with Baron Cohen and his film crew at the event in Palmdale, Calif., two years ago. The lawsuit states she now needs a wheelchair or cane to move around.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages of more than $25,000.

Phone and e-mail messages left with publicists for Baron Cohen and NBC Universal weren’t returned Wednesday.

It was unclear whether the incident involving Olson will appear in “Bruno.” The lawsuit mentions contracts that Olson apparently signed, but claim they were entered under “duress” and included several misrepresentations.
