GREASE star Jeff Conaway is suing a Las Vegas casino after reportedly being assaulted by security guards last year (02).

The actor, who played sexy badboy KENICKIE in the musical masterpiece, was enjoying a night out in the MANDALAY BAY RESORT AND CASINO last June when he claims guards "violently slammed him to the floor".

TAXI star Conaway, 52, told the LOS ANGELES SUPERIOR COURT that he was given many free cocktails by the establishment but was then asked to leave the gambling tables.

When he tried to return for another hand he allegedly received "multiple fractures in (his) right humerus".

His lawyer WILLIAM BLOCH told the court he was not sure whether his client was drunk as, "I wasn't there to breathalyse him."

Conaway's wife KERRI is also suing the casino for emotional distress.
