“Boardwalk Empire” star Paz de la Huerta is being sued by a reality star whom she allegedly attacked last month.
In a law suit filed Friday in New York City, Samantha Swetra, who starred on MTV’s “The City,” claims she suffered permanent injuries after the HBO actress punched her and then threw a glass at her, cutting her leg, in a posh hotel bar.
Swetra was “assaulted, beaten and battered” so viciously that she sustained “severe” physical and emotional injuries … “some of which injuries are permanent in nature,” the law suit reads.
Swetra is suing for unspecified damages.
De la Huerta was arraigned Tuesday in New York on assault and other charges related to the incident. De la Huerta’s lawyer said at the time that she is “asking people not to rush to judgment.”
