'Reality' Show Host Sued For Assault

Local Court News Posted on

A security guard hired to work at Paris Hilton's unveiling of her clothing line claims "reality TV" host Stephen Glover aka "Steve-O" ordered his 6-foot-9-inch bodyguard to assault him, so that Glover, host of USA Network's "Dr. Steve-O" show, could crash the party.

Roland Cano claims Kitson's clothing store, a celebrity hangout, hired him to provide security for Hilton's Aug. 16, 2007 event. He says Glover demanded to be let in, and he did his job and refused him entrance. Glover then ordered his bodyguard, former professional football player and co-defendant Reggie Pace ("Big Regg"), to assault him, and Pace punched him in the face and head repeatedly, Cano says. Glover used the assault to enter the event, he says.

The complaint continues: "After defendant Big Regg struck Plaintiff's face and head, defendant Steve-O proclaimed, 'I just had my dude rip that security guard's face. ... It was awesome. ... I just needed to see my security guard rough everyone the fuck up!' Defendant Steve-O then hugged defendant Big Regg, stating, 'Nice work man. You made me so proud of you. ... We won!'" (Ellipses in complaint.)

Cano demands punitive damages for assault and battery, negligence and emotional distress. He also sued USA Networks' corporate parent, NBC Universal. He is represented by Joseph Barrett with The Cochran Firm.
