Demi Moore's No Sexual Harasser

HEADSHOTS: TV model wannabe goes from mug shot to 8x10 glossy

FEBRUARY 11--Idaho state investigators have ruled that there is "no probable cause" to support allegations that Demi Moore sexually harassed a former employee who claims he was fired for rebuffing the star's amorous advances.

Lawrence Bass, who worked as an estate manager at Moore's Hailey retreat, last year filed a complaint with the Idaho Human Rights Commission alleging that Moore had groped and massaged him against his will. But in mid-December, the rights commission formally dismissed the 43-year-old Bass's complaint after a lengthy investigation, according to TSG interviews with Moore's lawyers.

At the time the state's decision was announced, Bass was sitting in a Hailey jail serving a 10-day sentence for civil contempt stemming from a lawsuit brought against him by Moore. Bass, who law enforcement officers have nicknamed "Big Mouth," is pictured at left in a Blaine County Sheriff's Office mug shot taken at the time of his holiday imprisonment. Below that image is another Blaine County booking photo, taken last March, apparently in connection with Bass's violation of a restraining order involving another woman.

Bass, who declined to answer TSG questions when contacted by phone, is not unfamiliar with the legal system. As we reported last year, when the oily Bass emerged with his harassment tale, California court records revealed that he had been the subject of at least seven restraining orders, was convicted of domestic violence, and is currently the subject of an outstanding arrest warrant in Ventura County.
