Rock drummer Tommy Lee accused of sexually assaulting woman on helicopter in 2003 after snorting cocaine, smoking marijuana

Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee has recently been accused of sexually assaulting a woman in 2003 while in a helicopter that was traveling from San Diego to Los Angles.

The woman stated that she was a friend of the pilot of the helicopter, and that he had invited her to go on a trip. The details of the case were included in court documents obtained by TMZ. However, once she arrived on the tarmac, she realized that Tommy Lee — legendary drummer of Motley Crue — was already on the helicopter.

It is not immediately clear if the woman had known Lee before stepping onto the helicopter with him. But she now claims that Lee and the pilot drank, snorted cocaine, and smoked marijuana during the trip.

The woman said that Lee grabbed her and forced her to sit on his lap. Lee is partly known for his marriage and ultimate divorce from "Baywatch" star Pamela Anderson in 1998. Their relationship was widely known to be rocky, and there were rumors that Lee had a tendency to be controlling.

The woman went on to say that Lee had groped her and kissed her, and that when she tried to slip away, he pulled her back to him. Lee allegedly penetrated the woman with his fingers and groped her breasts, according to the report.

Lee allegedly pulled his pants down and attempted to force the woman's head into his groin, but she eventually wrestled free. After the helicopter landed in Los Angeles, Lee apparently hugged her and departed.

The woman and pilot flew back to San Diego following the incident. She later said she did not initially go to the police because she did not think she would be believed.

The Daily Mail reported that Lee had previously spent time behind bars after being charged with a spousal abuse felony involving Anderson in 1998. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department reported that Anderson sustained a broken fingernail on her right hand, a bloody hand, and bruises on her neck from the altercation.

As a result, Lee was made to complete 200 hours of community service and to pay $5,000 find to the Santa Monica Battered Women's Association, according to the report.

Lee has not responded to the Daily Mail's request for comment.
