Vin Diesel has been accused of sexual battery in a lawsuit from a former assistant, according to legal documents obtained by TheWrap.

The civil action, filed Thursday in Los Angeles, alleges the “Fast & Furious” star forcibly groped and molested former staffer and plaintiff Asta Jonasson during production on “Fast Five” in the fall of 2010.

Jonasson was hired by Diesel’s production company, One Race, to assist the actor on location in Atlanta during the action film’s shooting, with the suit describing her responsibilities as organizing parties and attending events with Diesel.

Diesel’s attorney, Bryan Freedman, said in a statement the allegations were untrue.
