An adult film actress who was in Charlie Sheen's hotel room during his New York City meltdown told ABC News that the actor put his hands around her neck and later offered to buy her silence — but that she plans to file charges and sue.

Anderson said she was hired to escort the "Two and a Half Men" actor to dinner and later went with him to New York City's Plaza Hotel, where he snorted a white powder, kissed her, lifted her skirt, and backed her onto a bed.

"He was, from the beginning of the night, very loud and he had no hesitations when it came to using derogatory language or cuss words," she said in an excerpt from a "Nightline" interview. She added that "towards the latter half of the night, it got really bad. He started yelling racial slurs.

"But it wasn't until he put his hands around my neck that I really thought to myself, you have gotten yourself in a bad, bad situation."

Anderson said she tried to flee the actor and hid in a bathroom, and that he tore open her purse and riddled the room with its contents. Police reportedly found the room trashed.

She said Sheen later offered her money not to talk about the night, Oct. 26, which ended with police taking him to a hospital for evaluation. Sheen's spokesman, Stan Rosenfeld, said at the time that he had had an "adverse allergic reaction" to medication.   

Charlie Sheen's lawyer Yale Galanter said in a statement that Anderson "never made any allegation of wrongful conduct on the part of Mr. Sheen the night of the incident. She has posted on her website that she was 'fine' after the incident but if you wanted to see more of her enter the web site for money."

Galanter added: "We will defend this lawsuit vigorously and will never pay her a dime. These allegations against Mr. Sheen are completely false, and are an blatant attempt to cash in on his celebrity."
