Scott Baio responds with guns blazing, in live video, to molestation claims from ‘Charles in Charge’ co-star

Actress Nicole Eggert took to Twitter on Saturday to claim Scott Baio molested her when they co-starred on “Charles in Charge” and Baio responded with guns a’blazing.

As with most things these days, President Donald Trump is at the center of it all.

Eggert tweeted her allegations in response to a tweet on Baio supporting Trump.

“Ask @scottbaio what happened in his garage at his house when I was a minor. Creep,” she posted.

In replying to comments on her tweet, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Eggert called herself as a “molested child” and described an alleged assault in response to one user: “What is ur explanation for him fingering me at age 14?”

Eggert’s replies were later deleted.

Baio’s wife, Renee Baio, was quick to tweet that Eggert has already been served with two cease-and-desist letters.

Baio also responded, saying he will do a Facebook Live video to “prove her claims are 100% lies!”

The two actors dated briefly in the late 1980s when they worked together and Eggert has previously acknowledged that she lost her virginity to Baio at the age of 17, THR reported.

But Baio pointed out in his Facebook statement and on Twitter there’s a problem with Eggert’s math.

“The reason I’m doing Facebook Live is because no one can edit me,” Baio said. “This is the truth.”

He noted that Eggert has been making false molestation claims about him since 2012, saying she “just won’t let them go.”

The actor proceeds to methodically lay out proof that the accusations are untrue.

The Facebook Live video was later posted on YouTube:

 

Much of the documentation Baio presented in the video he shared on Twitter, to include Eggert telling Yahoo she “would love to work with him” again.

“There are a lot of weird, strange rumors about things that went on between us, but we became really good friends and everything is way more innocent than it was made out to be,” she said.

“I would love to work with him again and I’m friends with his wife,” Eggert added.

As Baio concluded in his Facebook video, false allegations distract from legitimate claims.

“The problem with almost all he said/she said cases is they’re he said/she said,” the actor said.

“Now go prove it or disprove it,” Baio said. “The real problem with this is people with legitimate claims aren’t taken seriously, and that’s too bad.”
