Ex-ESPN broadcaster and baseball analyst Harold Reynolds has filed suit against the network for $5 million after “wrongful termination” for what he said was a “brief and innocuous” hug of a female intern.

Reynolds was fired July 24. “I have tried everything possible to handle this situation quietly behind the scenes,” Reynolds said in a statement released to the Associated Press Tuesday. “After numerous conversations and multiple mediation discussions with ESPN executives it is clear that ESPN had no intention of solving this problem amicably.”
