Paz de la Huerta punches, cuts Samantha Swetra in nightclub brawl




Perennial party girl you haven't heard of Paz de la Huerta has pushed the limits of polite society yet again, this time by taking a swing at model and onetime reality star Samantha Swetra in a New York club over the weekend. Why'd it take so long for us to hear about it? Because nobody remembers who Paz de la Huerta is (she's Nucky's girlfriend on HBO's Boardwalk Empire, FYI).

The New York Daily News says the former member of MTV's The City made a crack about de la Huerta's sobriety -- or lack thereof -- while they were both at Top of the Standard nightclub. Apparently Swetra didn't like Paz flirting with one of her male companions, who was in a group that included supposedly sober Lindsay Lohan.

De la Huerta then apparently fell down, exposing one of her breasts and leading Swetra to exclaim "Triple axel!" Paz spazzed, threw a drink glass at Samantha and punched her in the face, bruising her face and making her lips swell up. The glass broke, too, causing more problems: "Blood was dripping down (Swetra's) leg," a source tells the Daily News. "Lindsay was pulling shards of glass off of it."

Paz was escorted out of the club and Sam took off for LiLo's room. Swetra didn't comment further, other than to tell the paper, "I am pressing charges." So that means we'll be hearing more about this catfight shortly, presumably.
