Entropic CEO accused of reality star assault

The CEO of San Diego tech firm Entropic Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: ENTR) is accused of assaulting one of the stars of the now-canceled ABC Family reality show “Beverly Hills Nannies” at his Utah vacation home.

Summit County prosecutors announced this week that they charged 51-year-old Patrick Henry with assault, damaging or interrupting a communication device, and criminal mischief. He's set to be arraigned March 18.

Police say Henry was hosting Ariane Bellamar Jan. 23 when he allegedly assaulted her and threw her phone to the ground when she tried to call for help. Authorities say the phone's screen was cracked in the encounter.

Henry issued a statement published by the Los Angeles Times saying Bellamar was drunk at the time and the assault accusations are false.

Shares of Entropic dropped 1.7 percent to close Thursday at $4.06.
