Anthony Michael Hall Sued for Assault and Battery Over Alleged Beatdown

Man claims that “The Breakfast Club” star used force and violence, “resulting in the infliction of serious bodily injury” in a September confrontation

Anthony Michael Hall allegedly roughed up his neighbor during a September confrontation at their Playa Del Rey, California, condominium. And now the neighbor has slapped back — with a lawsuit.

In the complaint, filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Richard Samson claims that “The Breakfast Club” actor confronted him in the common area of the condo, behaving in “a rude or intimidating manner” and subjected Samson to “offensive touching.”

According to the suit, Hall “assaulted, intimidated and battered” Samson, leaving Samson “hurt and injured in his health, strength and activities.”

“Plaintiff also sustained injuries to his nervous system and person, all of which have caused and continues to cause Plaintiff great mental, physical, emotional and nervous pain and suffering,” the suit reads.

In November, Hall was charged with felony battery over the alleged incident. According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, Hall is accused of using force and violence, “resulting in the infliction of serious bodily injury.”

According to TMZ, Hall is accused of breaking his neighbor’s wrist and hurting his back.

Samson is seeking unspecified damages in the suit.
