'Boardwalk Empire' Star Paz de la Heurta Charged in Alleged Hotel Assault

Paz de la Huerta 640

"Boardwalk Empire" star Paz de la Huerta was charged Tuesday with assault and other counts after she allegedly punched a former reality TV star at a Manhattan hotel.

De la Huerta and Samantha Swetra, a former star of MTV's "The City," got into a verbal dispute at The Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking District on March 20.

The fight apparently began after Swetra made a few snide remarks aimed at de la Huerta -- prompting the actress to throw a glass and punch the reality star in the face.

"I'm a real actress on HBO," de la Huerta shouted at Swetra before allegedly attacking her.

Swetra claims the attack left her with a bloody nose and bruised mouth, prosecutors said. De la Huerta was also charged in Manhattan Criminal Court with criminal possession of a weapon, attempted assault and harassment.

An order of protection was also issued barring de la Huerta from contacting Swetra.
