Victoria Principal is firing back at the maid she pulled a gun on in explosive court papers obtained by RadarOnline.com. In blow-by-blow detail that would make Pamela Ewing shutter on Dallas, Principal goes into lengthy detail into what led up to her dramatic 911 call (listen to the call here)and admits she actually cocked the handgun she pointed at Maribel Banegas, the maid she employed for three days in late December, 2008..
Principal claims trouble started when Maribel took her dog for a walk and didn't return for an hour. Principal says she called the maid on her cell phone and demanded she bring her dog home.. Principal claims Maribel returned home dragging Principal's dog into the kitchen on such a taught leash that the dog's front paws were lifted off the ground, and the dog was coughing and wheezing.
Principal also alleges Banegas physically assaulted her other housekeeper and refused to leave the home while repeatedly yelling "Give me money."
Principal says she went upstairs and retrieved her handgun, came back downstairs, Principal claims Banegas took a couple steps toward her, that's when Principal says she cocked the handgun and again ordered Banegas to leave.
Principal says her dog suffered several injuries and has lost 3 pounds as a result. Principal says she suffered pain, suffering, fear, anxiety and distress and argues her actions were in self defense. She is asking the court to award her legal fees, medical costs and other damages.
