Anthony Michael Hall Sued For Assault And Battery By Neighbor


Anthony Michael Hall’s legal problems have increased.  The Breakfast Club star is now being sued by Richard Samson, the actor’s neighbor, who claims Hall physically assaulted him in the courtyard of their condominium, according to a complaint filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court.


According to reports, Samson accuses Hall of negligence, assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional stress. Specifically, the neighbor claims Hall confronted him the building’s common area in “a rude or intimidating manner” and engaged in “offensive touching.”


The docs go on to claim Hall “assaulted, intimidated and battered” Samson, leaving him “hurt and injured in his health, strength and activities.” Samson also claims he “sustained injuries to his nervous system and person,” which continue to cause him “great mental, physical, emotional and nervous pain and suffering,” according to the lawsuit.


Hall pleaded not guilty to the charge of felony battery on Dec. 1, after an arrest warrant was issued following the alleged altercation, during which Hall is accused of breaking his neighbor’s wrist. The actor appeared in court earlier this month, where a judge ordered him to stay away from Samson and his family. A video of the alleged incident was caught on tape.
