Former LASSIE child star JON PROVOST has accused late silver screen idol Sal Mineo of drugging and attempting to sexually assault him in a new memoir.
Provost claims the attack took place when he was just 17, after Rebel Without a Cause actor Mineo had become his acting mentor.
The actor tells the National Enquirer, "I began a sexual relationship with Sal's girlfriend Susan - with his blessing. One night Susan and I were together and, in the middle of it all, Sal jumps into the bed and puts some poppers (amyl nitrate) under my nose.
"The room was spinning, my heart was racing, and I felt like my head was going to blow off. Sal was holding me down and trying to sexually assault me."
Provost ended the friendship after the attack, but never spoke of it again. Mineo died in 1976, aged just 37.
