Meet Richelle Olson, a 39-year old Palmdale, California resident and also the woman who is suing Sacha Baron Cohen. The incident was an alleged attack on Olson at a bingo hall during the filming of “Bruno.”
She claims that Cohen came to the charity bingo match for the elderly while in his “Bruno” character. He began calling the bingo numbers in a vulgar and offensive manner, thus leading her to try to grab the microphone away from him.
Olson claims that upon trying to get the mic from him, Cohen attacked her, along with several of his cameramen. She claims that she fell to the ground, suffering bleeding from her brain and has been forced to use a wheelchair or walker ever since.
