A former beverage manager at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas has sued Dennis Rodman, claiming the former NBA star assaulted her in March 2006 by rubbing up against her body and slapping her on the buttocks.
In her federal lawsuit filed this week, Sara Robinson also accuses her former employer of retaliating against her after she complained about Rodman's behavior.
Rodman spokeswoman Shannon Barr declined to comment.
In her complaint, Robinson says she was working in the resort's Cuba Libre bar when Rodman began "making a scene" by trying to climb atop the bar after failing to gain her full attention.
The lawsuit says when Robinson intervened, Rodman grabbed her, rubbed his body against her and slapped her open-handed on the buttocks.
