Bill Cosby was accosted by a topless woman while arriving in court on Monday morning.
The woman, who has been identified as Nicolle Rochelle of Little Neck, New Jersey, jumped over a barricade and ran at the disgraced actor while he was making his way from his car into the courthouse.
Rochelle, 38, appeared on The Cosby Show as a child, appearing in four episodes of the popular sitcom as Danielle, a friend of Rudy Huxtable (played by Keshia Knight Pulliam).
Pulliam had been by Cosby's side for the first day of his trial the last time he appeared in court, but was not present for the opening statements of his retrial on Monday.
Rochelle had the words 'Women's Lives Matter' written across her body and was quickly stopped by sheriff's deputies, who put her in handcuffs and took her into custody.
