The legendary Carroll Shelby is being sued by a receptionist, who claims that she was sexually assaulted by Shelby as well as raped by another employee, then fired.
Angelica Smith was hired by Shelby as his secretary in 2005, but ended up becoming a personal servant—and claims that Shelby sent her out to buy liquor and pornography for him. Shelby “ran a pervasively hostile work environment” that involved groping Smith at his home, and another time when another Shelby employee drugged and raped her in December 2010.
Smith went to Shelby to report him, but ended up getting fired. Now she’s suing both Shelby, who certainly has plenty of lawsuit experience, the Shelby company, as well as the rapist in question for $5 million in damages.
Knowing Shelby, however, he’ll probably find a way to sue her instead.
