Tackling Disabled Woman

Johnny Depp's hired muscle put a handicapped woman in the hospital Thursday night -- this according to a police report filed by the woman in question.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... 52-year-old Robin Eckert filed the report claiming she was celebrating her husband's birthday at the Iggy Pop concert in L.A. -- treating him to $600-a-pop seats at the Palladium ... and Johnny was seated right beside her, surrounded by bodyguards.
Eckert claims she was having a blast, dancing her face off ... when she accidentally strayed a little too close to Johnny's table.
According to Eckert, Depp's bodyguards pounced on her out of nowhere -- grabbing her wrists and wrestling her to the ground. Soon as she regained composure, Eckert says she left and got herself checked out at the hospital.
Eckert's assistant tells TMZ, Robin and her party had been drinking during the evening. Law enforcement sources tell us, Robin appeared wasted when she made the report.
Attempts to reach Depp's people were unsuccessful.
