Apple Employee Framed "Law and Order" Star

The New York Daily News reports that "Law & Order" star Richard Belzer was framed by an Apple Store employee. The 65-year-old actor said that the 21-year-old female employee filed a harassment complaint simply because he was famous.

The incident took place Wednesday at the Apple Store located at 67th and Broadway. While Belzer was browsing, the Apple Store employee, Milan Agnew, asked if he needed help. In response, he said that he merely touched her shoulder. She said that he grabbed her by the shoulders, shook her, choked her, and then screamed "I NEED HELP!"

She then called 911 and filed the harassment complaint.

Once the local authorities arrived, they viewed the whole incident on the store's security tape. Sure enough, the employee was lying through her teeth.

"I didn't scream," Belzer explained to the New York Daily News. "I didn't choke her. Go to the videotape. The police did. A bunch of New York's Finest reviewed the tape, and they saw that there was nothing. I was not charged. There is no charge." Belzer has played the same character-- Detective John Munch-- on TV since 1993.

Belzer added that he felt sorry for the officers. "It's too bad our fine police officers had to waste their time," he said. "They should ticket the girl."

The New York Daily News did not indicate if Agnew still has a job with Apple but it's safe to assume Apple dismissed her.

    You know, the american legal system is to blame for this. Every Tom Dick and Harry thinks its easy to squeeze a celebrity out of a few hundred thousand bucks in a bogus law suit. I bet she saw him come in the store, and huge dollar signs just popped up in front of her eyes.
    "Yaaay, i´ll make up some bogus charge, and he will settle out of court, and then i´ll get my new Prada bag!"
    I vote that she is sentenced to have every member of the jury grab her by the shoulders, shake her hard, and scream in her ears "YOU NEED HELP!!!!!"

    If they didn't have cameras, he'd be in big trouble now.
