A stuntman working on the Shooter TV reboot says Tom Sizemore was drunk when he hit him with a vehicle on set, according to a lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Steve De Castro says he was working on location at the Agua Dulce Airport in Santa Clarita, Calif., on July 6 when Sizemore became intoxicated knowing he would operate a motor vehicle. Attorney Lawrence Grassini argues Sizemore's actions were willful, vile and done in conscious disregard for safety — warranting exemplary damages.

De Castro says he doesn't yet know the extent of his injuries, but he's suing the actor — along with Viacom, Paramount and others — for a host of claims including negligence, battery, assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The stuntman claims producers ratified Sizemore's actions by not terminating him after the crash.

Sizemore joined the USA show in May and, in July, was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence — less than two weeks after the crash happened.

Producers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The full complaint is below.
