'Boardwalk Empire' Star Paz de la Huerta Charged with Assault
The actress’ lawyer says she's "asking people not to rush to judgment."
Boardwalk Empire actress Paz de la Huerta was arraigned Tuesday in New York on assault and other charges after attacking a former reality TV star in a posh hotel bar last month.
A court complaint says de la Huerta punched Samantha Swetra, onetime star of MTV’s The City, in the face and threw a glass that cut Swetra's leg.
Manhattan prosecutors say de la Huerta then told police she considered herself "a real actress” and that Swetra was a fake and "a publicity seeker."
