Don Johnson's Sushi Sex Suit

An incident at a San Francisco sushi bar is coming back to haunt Don Johnson, and no, it's not a case of food poisoning.

The star of the just-canceled series Nash Bridges is being sued for sexual harassment by a woman who claims the actor grabbed her and made lewd comments at the Mas Sake restaurant in January.

The woman, whose name is not included in the suit, said she decided to introduce herself because she was a fan but quickly became a non-fan after Johnson responded with "inappropriate physical behavior."

The suit accuses Johnson of sexual battery, assault and battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, according to The Associated Press.

Johnson's lawyers and publicist have maintained that there is no merit to any of the accusations. In May, prosecutors decided not to file criminal charges against Johnson for the alleged incident.

The actor, who became a household name after his '80s stint on Miami Vice, was previously sued for sexual harassment in 1997; the case was settled in 1998.
