Pierre Casiraghi, Prince of Monaco, hurt in NYC bar fight
(CBS/AP) Prince Pierre Casiraghi, a grandson of the late Princess Grace of Monaco, was briefly hospitalized after a brawl in a New York City nightclub.
Former nightclub owner Adam Hock was arraigned Sunday on charges of assaulting the prince and three friends at the Double Seven nightspot in Manhattan's Meatpacking District. The 24-year-old prince suffered cuts to his face during the incident.
An attorney who represents the prince tells The Associated Press that Casiraghi was treated at a hospital and released after Saturday's fight. Attorney Richard Golub says Casiraghi's group did not "instigate anything" or provoke the attack.
But Hock tells the New York Post the prince and his entourages "were being completely obnoxious," verbally abusing women with him.
Also punched in the clash was shipping heir Stavros Niarchos III.
