Actor Alexander Polinsky is the second person to come forward alleging Scott Baio sexually abused him while on the set of Charles In Charge.
In a press conference on Wednesday, Polinsky appeared alongside attorney, Lisa Bloom, and first accuser, Nicole Eggert, to reveal that Baio pulled down his pants on several occasions to humiliate him and threw a burning hot cup of tea in his face as “torture.”

“I’m interested in healing all of us,” Polinsky said. “I was a kid who was supposed to be really happy working on a tv show at a theme park, and instead I was dreading it — getting up to work everyday. I want a public apology. He abused me in public in front of hundreds of people. There’s a lot we kept inside for years, it was painful. He was a tyrant.”
Eggert, by his side, added that she was there to support her friend Polinsky.
“After the incident where Alex walked in on me being on his [Baio] lap and he was thrown to the ground, Alex was consistently picked on — berated with horrendous homophobic …
