(Newser) – The latest disturbing Hollywood sexual misconduct allegation involves Tom Sizemore, an actor who has already faced drug and domestic violence charges. Multiple cast and crew members tell the Hollywood Reporter that Sizemore, best known for roles in war films including Black Hawk Down, was kicked off a Utah movie set in 2003 for allegedly touching an 11-year-old girl's genitals. They say the day after a Born Killers scene in which the girl sat on Sizemore's lap, she told her parents that he had touched her inappropriately, possibly putting his finger inside her. "At one point her eyes got just huge, like she could've vomited. I was watching her," co-star Robyn Adamson says. "Later, when I was told about what happened, I knew exactly what it was."

"There was never any doubt. He was this guy who was already known for making inappropriate comments, being drunk, being high," says production assistant Roi Maufas. "Then this happens. Guys reached for hammers," he says. Producers say Sizemore, who was ordered to leave the set, denied the allegations. Crew members say the girl's parents spoke to police, but ended up not pressing charges, possibly out of fear of ruining her film career. She is now 26 and says she is considering legal action against both Sizemore and her parents. Sizemore, 55, was dropped by his management firm soon after the incident. Former manager Charles Lago tells USA Today that he is "not surprised" by the allegations. "He's the most abhorrent person I've ever met in my life," Lago says.
