Actor Terry Crews has officially filed a lawsuit against the agent he accused of groping him. Crews says he pushed Venit and turned to actor Adam Sandler and said, "Adam, come get your boy!" Crews has already filed a police report and police say the investigation is ongoing.

Crews also said in the documents that Venit called to apologize for what he did, saying he wasn't himself that night.

Crews says he met with WME's chairman Ari Emanuel, who apologized for Venit's behavior.

Mr. Crews, who also starred as a professional wrestler / president in the satire "Idiocracy", went public in October to tell fans that Mr. Weinstein's behavior was indicative of a systemic problem within the industry. Crews said when he reached out to shake Venit's hand that the agent instead grabbed Crews' genitals, squeezing them so hard that it caused him to leap back in pain. Venit has since returned to the agency but Crews is not backing down from his case. He says Sandler seemed shocked by what had transpired.

Crews detailed the incident in a series of Tweets, before firing the agency and discussing the situation on Good Morning America. However, Emanuel assured Crews that Venit, "did not have that level of power despite his title as head of the Motion Picture Department". Crews maintains the suspension was nothing more than a slap on the wrist and claims he was pressured to stop talking about the assault. Upon providing this reminder, Crews wrote in all caps: "ABUSERS PROTECT ABUSERS".

Crews is now seeking monetary and punitive damages for assault, battery, sexual battery, sexual harassment, gender violence and intention infliction of emotional distress.

WME has not yet replied to a request for comment.
