Johnny Depp

Bodyguards Accused of

Tackling Disabled Woman

12/4/2011 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

They need to pass a law allowing people to sue the ASSES off of people that make false claims, like this woman, Justin Beiber's accuser, etc. It would put an end to a lot of this bull****

What kind of handicap? Socially incompetent? Severe lack of morals and ethics? Intolerence of alcohol?

What a lovely evening of music appreciation. Maybe her handicap is alcoholsim. Maybe she lurched too close to their table, they grabbed her, and she fell to the groud. Now she would like to recoup ticket expenses.

Why in the world is she trying to wrestle body guards if she is busy dancing and celebrating her husband's birthday? Rock concerts usually have very tight securtiy. I would think they would remove people who were randomly tackling dancers to the ground.

Intoxicated 52 year old lady dancing her arse off, and she's 'disabled'. Hmmm ...

Wow not often you hear of a handicapped person "dancing her face off" I'm sure there was more to that story that she's not sharing.

What's her handicap? She can't be too handicapped if she was "dancing her face off"

Maybe that is her handicap, she has no face! She danced it off. LOL

Why do I have this nagging suspicion that Mrs. Ecker was quite annoying and had invaded Johnny's personal space repeatedly before security finally took her down? And if she's dancing vigorously and getting smashed what is her handicap, alcoholism?

It was just an innocent mistake made by an uncouth American. If they would have been in France, it would have been acceptable.

Johnny Depp is such a freak now. I mean he's always been weird but now he's extremely bizarre and he has some fake accent thing going on. Oh and he looks like ****! Still a good actor though.
