A dental technician is suing actor Charlie Sheen for allegedly punching her in the chest and grabbing her bra. Margarita Palestino filed the lawsuit Friday, seeking unspecified damages in the assault and battery suit, The Associated Press reports. Police are looking into the alleged incident from Sept. 25 but have not yet released any details.

According to Sheen’s publicist, Jeff Ballard, Sheen had a bad reaction to the combination of nitrous oxide and pain medication he was taking for a shoulder injury. He said Sheen knocked over some dental instruments but that the woman’s other allegations were untrue.
