A Las Vegas bartender is suing Dennis Rodman in federal court for assault, saying the ex-NBA star rubbed up against her and slapped her derriere last year, reports the AP. Sara Robinson is also accusing the Hard Rock hotel for firing her after she filed a complaint regarding Rodman's behavior. It's deja vu for the ex-NBA star, who was sued in Vegas in 2001.

He privately settled the case—in which he was accused of humiliating a craps dealer by rubbing dice on his head, chest, and genitals—after a jury awarded the man $80,000. This time around, Robinson claims he "made a scene" by climbing up on the bar when he didn't get her attention, then proceeded to grab and slap her "open-handed on the bottom." She seeks unspecified damages. (Read more Dennis Rodman stories.)
