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.

Sarah, I'm glad you agree with me.. I feel the dirty little Pirate should not have just sat there while his bodygaurds push a lady around. A gentleman would have stopped it. He's a jerk! I hear his children were with him. I guess they are used to seeing their father acting like a jerk!

I was there admittedly I did not have the best view of them. We all heard Depp was there and were starring at his table more than we were the show. From what I saw she tried to hug him...others say she fell on him. I did see a few guards grab at her and they all went down.

I"m so sorry that this Doctor and professor of Medicine was physically attacked and is NOW being attacked by idiots like you.

How many of you have ever gone to a concert, had a beer and danced?
It's a sad day when I read how many people think it's alright to attack anyone, let alone a woman doctor who's just having some fun.
I hope her case wins and Depp figures out when it's time to call off his goons.
What was the point of prying her cell phone out of her hands one finger at a time and then dragging her?
Shame on everyone who takes sides with Depp, his "people" were clearly OUT OF LINE!
