A Utah woman who told police that Sizemore groped her at a photo shoot when she was 11 says the incident left her with lifelong problems.

A Utah woman who told police that Tom Sizemore groped her at a photo shoot when she was 11 is suing the actor.

The lawsuit filed Monday says the 2003 incident during production of the movie Born Killers left her with lifelong problems, including post-traumatic stress and addiction to drugs and alcohol. The lawsuit seeks at least $3 million in damages.

Sizemore denied the "highly disturbing" allegation when it surfaced publicly last year, saying he would never inappropriately touch a child. A spokeswoman did not immediately return messages seeking comment Monday.

Salt Lake City police investigated in 2003, but prosecutors didn't file charges, citing witness and evidence problems. Sizemore's career has included prominent roles in Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down, but he has been dogged by drug abuse and domestic violence arrests.
