Paz de la Huerta—26-year-old Boardwalk Empire star and oft-nude, perma-boozed lipstick enthusiast—was arrested last night for beating up Samantha Swetra, a cast member from MTV's The City. According to Gatecrasher, a drunken Paz staggered over to Samantha's table at the Standard Hotel last night:
That's when, our first source adds, de la Huerta suddenly lost her footing and went crashing into an adjacent table.
After taking in the unexpected pratfall—which, our source adds, resulted in one of de la Huerta's breasts "hanging out of her dress"—an amused Swetra yelled out "triple axel!"
The gibe sent de la Huerta into a rage and she threw a drink glass at Swetra's leg and took a swing at the model's face, the source says.
De la Huerta's aim is apparently as good as her acting on Boardwalk Empire. According to our source, the actress' fist connected squarely with Swetra's lips and nose.
The glass, which shattered, also did some damage. "Blood was dripping down [Swetra's] leg," the source tells us. "Lindsay was pulling shards of glass off of it."
Samantha swore she would press charges, and filed a report with the NYPD this morning. Paz has yet to be formally charged with a crime.
With only the most superficial of knowledge of Paz's fiasco, I'm going with "guilty as sin" and "awesome as hell." Paz seems like the kind of a lady who would draw and quarter an MTV bimbo, then spike her blood with tequila and drink it, just because she was bored. And I mean that as a compliment.
