Monaco Prince Bloodied In Brawl At Meatpacking District Club
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A brawl at a Manhattan bar landed the grandson of the late Princess Grace of Monaco in the hospital over the weekend.
Prince Pierre Casiraghi, 24, was apparently beaten in a fight on Saturday at the Double Seven nightclub in the Meatpacking District.
The prince and his friends reportedly clashed with Adam Hock, former Hawaiian Tropic owner, over women and alcohol.
The 47-year-old is now charged with assault.
Casiraghi was treated at the hospital for cuts to his face and released.
His attorney said the attack was unprovoked.
However, Hock told the New York Daily News that Casiraghi and his friends began harassing models seated at his table.
Hock said Casiraghi threw the first punch and that he acted in self-defense, according to the report.
Casiraghi is Princess Caroline’s son.
