Johnny Depp and the Hollywood Palladium are being sued by a woman who claims she was roughed up by the actor's security team during a concert.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the woman wants to remain anonymous, but she says she is a medical professor at UC Irvine. She also claims to be handicapped.

During a concert in December, the woman alleges Depp's entourage became confrontational, handcuffed her, and then dragged her across the venue, causing her pants to come off in front of the crowd.

Depp has not commented on the suit.
