UPDATE: Actress denies involvement in Star Trek
“I was never in an episode of STAR TREK. I know that people think I was. I get pictures to sign and I had to write back and say, ‘Hey, that’s not me . . . ” I am not sure who she was. Look close enough and you can see that she has blue eyes and I, of course, have brown. Whoever she was, she must not be around anymore as I am sure she would correct the mistake about me doing it, in all these articles.”
Memory Alpha – the Star Trek database – has also removed Vetri’s credit, with the part now listed “unknown performer.”
A former original Star Trek guest actress has been charged with attempted murder. Last weekend Victoria Vetri (from “Assignment: Earth”) was arrested for shooting her husband. Details below.
Vetri accused of shooting husband
The 66-year-old Victoria Rathgeb (formerly Victoria Vetri, also known as Angele Dorian) was arrested last Saturday night in Los Angeles. According to the LAPD Victoria and her husband of 20 years Bruce Rathgeb were arguing inside their Hollywood apartment when she grabbed a gun and fired at least one shot, hitting her husband in the upper body. Bruce Rathgeb is hospitalized in critical condition.
Rathgeb is being held in jail in lieu of $1.5 million bail and has been charged with attempted murder. A spokesman for the LAPD told the LA Times “We investigated all possible angles to the story and came to the conclusion that she most certainly did shoot her husband. She is due in court November 1st.
