Hot-headed “Mob Wives” star Drita D’Avanzo was arrested late Tuesday afternoon following an argument that turned violent.

The reality star allegedly threw punches at another woman in the Tottenville neighborhood of Staten Island after a verbal dispute between the ladies escalated, police tell Page Six.

Cops said that D’Avanzo, 40, punched the other woman a number of times, causing a cut on her lip and swelling to her head. The victim, whose identity has not been revealed, refused medical attention.

D’Avanzo was taken in at 5:36 p.m. and charged with one count of misdemeanor assault. She has since been released.

D’Avanzo’s hot temper has previously gotten her into trouble on the VH1 show.

Her arrest didn’t appear to damper her mood, though. On Wednesday, she tweeted about an upcoming party at her Staten Island shop: “I will be holding an event at my store next Sat!!!! Posting details soon:)) #MakeupPartayyyyy.”

“Mob Wives” execs had no comment.
