QUICK TAKES

More trouble for Tom Sizemore

May 16, 2003|From Reuters

Actor Tom Sizemore, already facing trial over allegations of domestic violence and intimidating witnesses, was charged Wednesday with 16 more criminal counts stemming from his relationship with onetime "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss.

Sizemore, who starred in the CBS drama "Robbery Homicide Division," faces a variety of misdemeanor charges such as domestic violence, vandalism and making criminal threats. He also was ordered to stay away from Fleiss and surrender any weapons in his possession, City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan said.

Sizemore's spokeswoman said the allegations were "malicious, false and scurrilous," and that Fleiss, the 41-year-old actor's ex-girlfriend, had invented them in "a pathetic attempt to get back at Mr. Sizemore for ending their relationship."

Sizemore was arrested last week for allegedly threatening Fleiss to keep her from testifying in his domestic violence trial.

That case stems from allegations that he assaulted another ex-girlfriend in November.
