LAS VEGAS (AP) - A former beverage manager at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas has sued Dennis Rodman, claiming the former Southeastern Oklahoma State and NBA star assaulted her in March 2006 by rubbing up against her body and slapping her on the buttocks.

In her federal lawsuit filed this week, Sara Robinson also accused her former employer of retaliating against her after she complained about Rodman's behavior.

Rodman spokeswoman Shannon Barr declined to comment today.

In her complaint, Robinson says she was working in the resort's Cuba Libre bar when the 46-year-old Rodman, a hotel guest, began, quote, ``making a scene'' by trying to climb atop the bar after failing to gain her full attention.

The complaint seeks unspecified damages.

Robinson also claims she was fired after she filled out a voluntary statement detailing Rodman's actions in a subsequent incident at the same bar the next month.
