Camille Grammer's ex-boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos, 36, was charged Friday, November 23, with a felony for assault of a family member and impeding breathing (choking) in Texas, after allegedly assaulting the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star in a hotel room just days after she had a surgical procedure to remove cancer.
On Monday, Charalambopoulos appeared in court and posted a non-arrest bond.
Grammer, 45, was granted a temporary restraining order against Charalambopoulos in late October, stating in court papers that the incident in question took place on October 16 in a Houston hotel where she was recovering from a hysterectomy after being diagnosed with early stage endometrial cancer.
She alleged that her boyfriend of two years "grabbed me by the hair, twisted it around his hand and repeatedly pulled my head into the bed and its headboard." According to Grammer, the violence escalated further, and he allegedly "succeeded in pulling out swaths of my hair and gave my a large, painful contusion on the side of my head" and "squeezed my nose between his fingers and pushed upward forcefully, meanwhile covering my mouth in an attempt to silence me and to prevent me from breathing." She added: "I experienced great pain in my nose and became afraid for my life as a consequence."
In a statement to ET, the Houston Police Department said it responded to Grammer's hotel on October 16 at around 3:30 a.m.after she reported the alleged assault, and officers observed that Camille had suffered minor injuries.
