Prince Pierre Casiraghi was hospitalized with cut on his face after a bar fight in New York City at a nightclub. Prince Pierre Casiraghi is the grandson of the former Hollywood actress Princess Grace Kelly and son of Princess of Caroline of Monaco.
Police say the Prince and three other men were punched in the face by the former restaurateur Adam Hock at The Double Seven club around 2 a.m. on Saturday, February 18, 2012. Those other men included, Stavros Niarchos, the Greek shipping scion and the former boyfriend of Paris Hilton.
According to an eye-witness, Adam Hock was sitting around a table with top models, Natasha Poly, Valentina Zalyaeva, and Pole Anja Rubik. The Prince and other men approached the table, drank the other’s drinks without permission then started to bad-mouthed the women sitting at the table. The witness said when Hock punched him, because of the outrageous behavior, Prince Pierre Casiraghi flew across the room and landed on a table on the other side.
The police report read that Prince Pierre Casiraghi was hit in the face and “created a laceration on informant’s cheek, which caused bruising, swelling, redness and substantial pain to informant Casiraghi’s face.”
Adam Hock’s attorney, Sal Strazzullo said in a statement, “An individual now known to me from the criminal complaint as the Prince was with others harassing my client and acting like little children, name calling and trying to attack my client.” He said that his client was acting in self-defense so Adam Hock hit Prince Pierre Casiraghi, 24-years old. The attorney went on to add, “Unless you’re a ninja fighter or Bruce Lee, it’s pretty tough to defend yourself against four men.”
Adam Hock told the New York Post, “I thought they were being childish, because they then sent over another bottle of vodka, saying, ‘If you don’t want us to drink your vodka, here’s another bottle.'”
The spokeswoman for Prince Casiraghi, Nadine Johnson said, “The facts are very clear. There was only one person arrested, Mr. Hock, who spent two days in jail as a result of his actions.”
