A disk jockey filed a misdemeanor battery complaint against comedian Tracy Morgan, saying the NBC sitcom star inappropriately groped her at a South Florida radio station.
Yuleika De Castro told police that Morgan smelled of alcohol as he touched her shoulders and arms, kissed the back of her head on Friday morning, Miramar Police Department spokesman Bill Robertson said.
De Castro said she pushed him away and he was escorted out of the studio by the people he came with, Robertson said.
Morgan, a former "Saturday Night Live" cast member, stars on the sitcom "30 Rock" with Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin and Jane Krakowski.
De Castro, whose on-air name is Sandy Domingo, said she filed the complaint because she felt "violated" and "dirty."
"He said he wants to impregnate me," Domingo told The Associated Press.
Morgan's attorney in Miami, Mark Shapiro, told authorities that his client was not yet prepared to speak to them, Robertson said.
A telephone message left by the AP at Shapiro's office after hours Friday was not immediately returned. Shapiro also did not immediately respond to an e-mail requesting comment.
Morgan's Friday and Saturday night shows at the Improv Comedy Club in Coconut Grove were canceled, said Isis Darios, who works in the box office. Club officials wouldn't say why.
Once the police report is complete, the Broward County State Attorney's Office will determine whether to file charges, Robertson said.
Morgan, who has a history of alcohol abuse, pleaded guilty in February to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge in New York. He previously pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor impaired driving charge in Los Angeles and was sentenced to 36 months' probation, fined $390 (EUR290) and ordered to attend an alcohol education program.
Telephone messages left Friday night for Morgan's agents and managers were not immediately returned. The radio station's offices were closed after hours.
