A Teenager Is Accusing THIS Orange Is The New Black Star Of Assault!

| Filed under: Legal MattersViolenceOrange is the New Black

It looks like Dascha's work life and personal life are starting to blend together.

No, this isn't a scene out of Orange Is The New Black.

The show's star Dascha Polanco is being accused of a crime IRL! The Netflix actress went to Manhattan Criminal Court on Thursday to face multiple charges of assault and harassment.

Michelle Cardona claims the 33-year-old beat her up on July 29.

The 17-year-old alleges the attack happened at her Upper Manhattan home, where the brunette beauty supposedly punched her head, scratched her, and pulled her hair.

But the celeb's lawyer, Gerald Lefcourt, believes the young girl is just after some quick cash, saying:

"This is an attempt to extort money by making a false claim."

He even reveals that there are recordings of the teen apparently blackmailing Dascha, in which she promises to make the complaint go away as long as the star coughs up some dough.

Gerald explained that he played the tapes in court, and is pretty confident about getting the case tossed, adding:

"We expect the case to be dismissed."

The OITNB star isn't due back in court until after the new year.
