Terry Crews is suing the WME (William Morris Endeavor) agent he alleges groped him at an industry party last year.

Crews accused Adam Venit of grabbing his genitals at a party and said in a police report he filed last month that Venit looked "like a rabid dog, sticking his tongue in and out of his mouth provocatively."

According to TMZafter Venit groped Crews, the actor called for help from Adam Sandler, a client of Venit's, who was also at the party and who checked in with him later that night. Crews reportedly told Sandler he was "surprised he got molested at age 48."

In the lawsuit, Crews explains he spoke to his own agent at WME the next day and reported the incident, and met with WME chairman Ari Emanuel, who apologized to him. 

Venit took some time away from the agency following Crews' initial tweets about the incident in October, but is supposedly back in the office.
