Roy Horn, of Siegfried and Roy, reportedly has some trouble keeping his paws to himself.

TMZ reports that a video shot in 2010 shows the Vegas tiger-trainer and performer sexually assaulting physical therapists while in rehab for the tiger attack that nearly killed him in 2003. The video reportedly includes everything from a visibly agitated Horn whipping a therapist with an oxygen tube to apparently pinching another’s nipples, forcibly kissing another on the mouth and grabbing the genitalia of a caretaker helping him to the bathroom.

Three male caretakers have apparently sued Horn in Nevada for the alleged 2010 transgressions. But they couldn’t file a criminal report with police, because the one-year criminal statute of limitations had run out. If the accusations are true, it’s possible Roy Horn needs more than just physical rehabilitation.
