Brüno sued for pain and suffering
A cameraman has sued Sacha Baron Cohen, claiming he was roughed up by a film crew shooting the comedian's Brüno character at a rally nearly two years ago.
The lawsuit filed by Mike Skiff in Los Angeles on Tuesday seeks more than $25,000 (Dh91,804) in damages for alleged physical and emotional pain and suffering.
Skiff claims he recognised Baron Cohen during a rally in downtown Los Angeles in November 2008. He says he was shoved, pulled and threatened with wooden signs as he filmed Baron Cohen, who was in character as gay Austrian fashion journalist Brüno.
Skiff claims the crew was upset he was filming the comedian.
