Scott Baio continues to release audio recordings in his fight against allegations that he sexually assaulted and emotionally abused Nicole Eggert and Alex Polinsky when they were minors on the set of the 80s sitcom Charles in Charge. On Saturday, Scott released another audio recording along with a personal statement, where he called upon the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and District Attorney to investigate and prosecute Nicole Eggert and Alex Polinsky for allegedly making a false police report. Scott Baio addressed one of Alex Polinsky’s most disturbing claims against him — that he cut a hole in the fabric of a makeshift-changing room and exposed his genitals to him when he was a minor. In a new audio recording that Scott Baio released, it was alleged that Willie Aames was the one who committed the act— not Scott Baio.
Alex Polinsky made the accusations during a joint press conference held on February 14, 2018, with his and Nicole Eggert’s attorney Lisa Bloom.
At the time of the press conference, Scott Baio released a statement where he denied the allegations and said the following.
“For reasons I don’t understand, I am the target of false claims that threaten everything that is important in my life. I am hurt and I am angry, but mostly, I am stunned that anybody can be so cruel to attack not just me, but my family.”
You may see that press conference below.
On July 11, 2020, after Scott Baio released an audio recording of a witness who stated that it was Willie Aames and not Scott Baio who exposed himself to Alexander Polinsky, Scott Baio stated the following.
“I have known Willie Aames for more than 40 years and thought of him as a friend. We have worked together many times. I’m shocked and disappointed to discover that he lied to Alex Polinsky and blamed me for what he had done. I had no recollection of this incident until my investigator located our witness, who gave police a statement. I have subsequently learned that Willie’s actions were reported to the executive producer of the show and were investigated by Human resources.
“These accusations made against me are both false and inexcusable. We have examined Nicole Eggert and Alex Polinsky’s actions for more than two years and the deeper we look, the more falsehoods like this we find. I am calling on the Los Angeles Police and District Attorney to investigate and prosecute Eggert and Polinsky for making a false police report.”
Please read my statement and share it. https://t.co/sVze1Rdpfk

Here is the audio recording that Scott Baio released where a witness alleges that it was Willie Aames who exposed himself to Alex Polinsky and not Scott Baio.
So Willie Aames not only exposed himself to the minor child Polinsky, but decades later he lied to Polinsky about it and falsely blamed @ScottBaio. Listen to the evidence: a conversation between the crew member and Polinsky's then business partner. https://t.co/8mUdrBug3S

Brian Glicklich, Scott Baio’s public relations, and digital strategist wrote an article for Medium where he addressed the allegations against Scott.
The Weinstein comment is rich, given that @NicoleEggert literally hired Weinstein's very own fixer, @LisaBloom. The first wave of evidence, audio recordings, images are online already. Much more is coming. https://t.co/0dNPd7iP70

At this point, Willie Aames hasn’t addressed allegations he exposed himself to Alex Polinsky. Additionally, Nicole Eggert nor Alex Polinsky have addressed the recordings, Scott Baio’s tweets, or Brian Glicklich’s recent article addressing the allegations that Nicole and Alex levied against Scott.
What do you think about the new audio recording? Do you believe the LAPD should investigate Alex Polinsky and Nicole Eggert for filing a false police report?
