Comedian Craig Frazier Drugged and Violated Her, Woman Says
SACRAMENTO (CN) - Comedian Craig Frazier and a friend drugged and violated a woman after Frazier singled her out from the stage, saying he was going to "take advantage of" her, the woman claims in court.
Alondra Rogers sued Frazier, Steve Wilson and Tommy T's Comedy & Dinner Theatre, in Superior Court. She alleges sexual battery, gender violence, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Frazier's name is spelled "Fraizer" throughout the complaint.
Rogers says in the lawsuit that she attended a comedy show at Tommy T's at which Frazier was performing, on July 22, 2012.
"During the course of the show, Mr. Frazier singled Ms. Rogers out and, from the stage, informed her that he was going to 'take advantage of' Ms. Rogers, at which time a waitress brought Ms. Rogers a drink. Mr. Frazier stated on stage her drinks were 'On the house.' The wait staff brought Ms. Rogers a total of two drinks at Mr. Frazier's request after she had satisfied Tommy T's two drink purchase requirement," Rogers says in the lawsuit.
It continues: "Ms. Rogers left the club and went to the Extended Stay Hotel. At this point she was still coherent and clear-minded. Ms. Rogers met Mr. Frazier, Mr. Wilson, and three other people by the outdoor pool lounge area. Mr. Frazier got a bottle of wine from his hotel room and brought it back to the outdoor lounge area. Ms. Rogers opened the bottle and poured all of the guests, including herself, a small glass of win.
"Ms. Rogers stepped away for a moment to make a phone call. When she came back, Mr. Wilson handed Ms. Rogers a wine glass filled to the brim. Ms. Rogers exclaimed that this could not be her glass since she did not have that much wine in her glass when she stepped away. Mr. Wilson confirmed that it was her glass and gave it to her. Ms. Rogers believes this glass contained additional drugs, since she went from coherent to total black out in a matter of minutes of consuming that glass of wine.
"When she awoke she was covered in bruises. She was sore in her vagina and throat. Medical documents reveal sexual trauma, with bruising and lacerations. Both Mr. Wilson and Mr. Frazier admitted that they had sexual relations with Ms. Rogers."
Photographic evidence shows bruises on Roger's arms, mouth, vagina and elsewhere on her body, proof that Frazier and Wilson held her down against her will, Rogers says in the complaint.
Frazier is on tour with comedian DL Hughley, one of the original Kings of Comedy. His television and movie credits include "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," "The George Lopez Show," and "Bruno," according to Frazier's Facebook page.
Rogers seeks punitive damages.
