Scott Baio’s former “Charles in Charge” co-star Nicole Eggert, who has accused Baio of molesting her when she was a minor, has now taken her accusations to the police, meeting Tuesday with the Los Angeles Police Department and saying that Baio sexually abused her when she was a minor, her attorney Lisa Bloom told TheWrap in a statement.
“Today Nicole Eggert and I met with two police detectives from the sexual assault unit at my law firm,” Bloom said. “Nicole answered all of their questions and told her story of sexual abuse by Scott Baio when she was a minor.”
In a tweet Tuesday, Eggert’s attorney, Lisa Bloom, said that they will “fully cooperate” with the police investigation.
Bloom added that many people have reached out saying that they observed Baio behaving inappropriately when Eggert was a minor.

“We will fully cooperate with the LAPD investigation. Many have reached out to Nicole and me to say that they witnessed inappropriate behavior from Scott Baio when Nicole was underage,” Bloom’s tweet read. “If anyone else has information about this matter please contact us.”
A spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department was not immediately able to confirm that a report was filed when contacted by TheWrap.
Late last month, Eggert told Megyn Kelly that Baio penetrated her with his finger when she was 14.
“That happened quite often, through the age of 16,” she said of the touching. “More than 10 times, more like probably once a week. And then on set, there was just a lot of groping, a lot of fondling, a lot of pulling me on his lap, trying to sneak kisses in the back, which other cast members saw.”

Baio has repeatedly denied Eggert’s allegations. In a Facebook Live video in January,the actor said that Eggert “seduced me,” though she wasn’t a minor at the time.
“My reputation is being damaged, my family is being put through this, and I’m done,” Baio added.

We will fully cooperate with the LAPD investigation. Many have reached out to Nicole and me to say that they witnessed inappropriate behavior from Scott Baio when Nicole was underage. If anyone else has information about this matter please contact us.https://t.co/t3xwm4g1AK

CNN’s firing of Jeffrey Lord leaves an opening for a new pro-Trump defender. Here are eight contenders.

Anthony Scaramucci
The Mooch is loose, and no one would be more entertaining than the very short-term White House communications director. CNN would have to use a seven-second delay, in case of any f—ing explosions.

Sean Spicer
Spicey must be missing the spotlight. If he were to join CNN, Melissa McCarthy could reprise her famous SNL impersonation: Win-win.

Rudy Guiliani 
The former New York City mayor might do better talking on TV about Trump than on his Twitter feed. That is, if Trump doesn’t ask him to replace Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

Tomi Lahren
The former face of “The Blaze” is the youngest person on this list, which couldn’t hurt CNN as it tries to draw younger viewers. And she was willing to talk out her disagreements with Trevor Noah. A CNN gig would dramatically raise her profile.
The Blaze

Roger Stone
The dirty trickster is having a moment thanks to a new documentary, “Get Me Roger Stone” — and of course predicting that Trump could win long before anyone took him seriously. His website describes him as an “alternative historian,” though, and we know how CNN feels about “alternative facts.”  
ABC

Corey Lewandowski 
Too easy: Lewandowski was formerlyator for CNN, Fox News and One America News Network. He was also Trump’s campaign manager. The future’s so bright.

Scott Baio
Chachi has been down from Day 1. And we know how much Trump values loyalty, as long as your name isn’t Jeff Sessions… or Anthony Scaramucci. Anyway, Baio on CNN would bring us many happy days. And it’s not like he’s busy.

Chachi or the Mooch could be just the advocates Trump needs
