Royally drunk: Prince of Monaco in hospital after booze fight
A brutal fight over vodka and Russian beauties has spilled royal blood: a brawl in a New York club has landed Monaco`s Prince Pierre Casiraghi in hospital.
The punch-up took place on February 18 at Manhattan`s trendy Double Seven nightclub, yet media learned about it only two days later. According to an eye-witness report to the New York Post, Grace Kelly`s grandson Casiraghi, 24, and his three friends provoked a conflict with American businessman Adam Hock.
Hock was hanging out in the company of top models - Russians Natasha Poly and Valentina Zalyaeva and Pole Anja Rubik - when the prince and his friends allegedly approached their table, drank their drinks without permission, and even bad-mouthed the ladies.
In response to this outrageous behavior Hock is said to have punched the men. Witnesses said the prince "flew across the room and landed on a table on the other side." He was sent to a hospital with his face broken, looking "like he needed plastic surgery." He was released in a few hours.
Adam Hock was detained and charged with four counts of third-degree assault for the alleged attacks on Casiraghi and his three friends. The businessman will face trial in March.
