Joseph Babnik, of Carmel, N.Y., the guard accused of shoving Seymour last month, has filed a lawsuit saying Seymour took his employment papers from him, shoved them down her dress and cut him with a screen door, according to Greenwich Time.
As Babnik claims in court documents, he reported on June 4 for his first day of work at the estate Brant and Seymour share and she grabbed the papers from the seat of his car. Babnik said he proceeded to follow her to the house and ask for the papers when she allegedly closed the screen door and cut him.
"Based on my training and experience, I believed at that time that I was not dealing with a rational person," Babnik said in a court document.
The afternoon of the alleged incident, Babnik was arrested and given a misdemeanor summons on a disorderly conduct charge. At the time, he said he fell into the door while trying to stop her from entering, according to news reports.
Babnik also claims that Seymour lied to police and prosecutors.
