paz de la huerta assaultPaz de la Huerta headed to an NYC court today and was hit with five misdemeanor charges, according to TMZ, including attempted assault, harassment, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and dual counts of third-degree assault.

The 26-year-old 'Boardwalk Empire' star attacked Samantha Swetra, star of MTV's 'The City,' at a New York party in March. The judge granted Swetra a restraining order from de la Huerta.

"Prosecutors told the judge Paz trashed Samantha during her stint in the police station on the night of the incident ... saying, 'I'm a REAL actress -- HBO! She's a publicity seeker, a FAKE actress,'" TMZ reports.
