LAPD to Johnny Depp:

Mind If We Probe You?

12/6/2011 12:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Johnny Depp
The LAPD has some questions for Johnny Depp -- and now, they're trying to track the actor down for an interview .... after his bodyguards allegedly beat up a disabled woman last week.

TMZ broke the story ... 52-year-old Robin Eckert filed a police report after the Iggy Pop show in L.A. Thursday night -- claiming she was minding her own business when she accidentally danced too close to Depp's table ... and his bodyguards tackled her.

Robin claims she was seriously injured during the alleged attack -- and even went to the hospital to get herself checked out.

Law enforcement sources tell us, the LAPD would like to speak to Johnny and his bodyguards about the police report -- and are currently making attempts to interview all of them.

So far, no word from Johnny's rep.

I hope Depp can win. It sounds like he was doing his own thing when, "disabled" chick got too drunk and fell at his table. Read the first TMZ... even the cops who took the report said she was wasted.

Funny she is disabled, but has no problem getting drunk or dancing. Or telling the truth.

Why would they want to "probe" Johnny? His bodyguard was the one who tackled her. The bodyguard should be arrested.

I'm having a hard time reconciling this. A dancing disabled woman? Hopefully this will call attention to this woman's claim that she's disabled and probably illegally collecting benefits. Errr...or is the term now undo***ented thief of benefits? Hate this P.C. B.S.

opportunist. and funny how so many disabled are able to do so much, you'd almost doubt their disability at all. must be a double opportunist here. used to be an embarrassment to claim disability, these days they are the most entitled of all. it's a shame, there are some who really do deserve special services and they are overshadowed by the gimme's. running to the hospital to be "checked out". lol, what a piggie at the trough.

That's the ONLY way this chick will get within 5 zip codes of Johnny. Stupid, desperate manipulator.

So they tackled her because she was dancing around and came too close to Johnny's table? So how, exactly, is she disabled? Or does she only have one when she needs to collect her government disability checks? I hope she gets nothing out of the lawsuit she is obviously going to file.

What kind of disability? Come on, give us some more information here. If she was drunk and dancing it must not be a severe disability. If it's a mental disability why was she at a club drinking. Psych drugs and alcohol are not a very smart combo.
