According to The Associated Press, Sandler is accused of sending harassing emails and voicemails to an organization supervisor in which he threatens to spread rumors of sex abuse within the Girl Scouts until he's properly compensated.

"I want a telecommute job from home of life at 150K," reads one email. "Or a two million dollar cash settlement. As you know, the newspapers like to cover my evil Elmo scenario."

Yes, Sander is the same Elmo impersonator who went off on a racist tirade last year in New York City.

He pleaded not guilty and is being held on $200,000 bond in Manhattan on the charge of attempted grand larceny.

And this story was brought to you by the letter "S" for how much Dan Sandler totally Sucks.
