LATEST: Christian Slater's alleged sexual assault victim is pursuing her legal action against the actor because he angrily ordered her not to press charges, instead of apologising.

The TRUE ROMANCE star was arrested on Tuesday (31MAY05) after allegedly feeling the 52-year-old drug counsellor's bottom, while intoxicated in Manhattan, New York.

Slater was booked on two sexual misconduct charges and released from police custody. He's due to appear in court again on 14 June (05).

But the unnamed woman refuses to drop the charges, because she was disgusted by Slater's attitude after the assault.

She tells America's FOX TV, "He didn't even say sorry. Instead, he said 'Drop it'.

"But nobody has the right to do this. That's why I'm pursuing it."

But Slater is determined to fight the charges and plans to sue police who arrested him.

The incident is not expected to effect Slater's current run in hit Broadway, New York play THE GLASS MENAGERIE.
