A Paramus man claims Jacqueline and Christopher Laurita and Giuseppe "Joe" Gorga attacked him as cameras rolled in Ridgewood on Saturday.

A judge on Thursday determined there was sufficient probable cause to charge them with assault and making terroristic threats.

John Karagiorgis filed the complaint and the reality stars responded with their own, which will be heard next week.

Karagiorgis tells The Record newspaper he still has a mark on his forehead from a stiletto heel.

The case will be forwarded to the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office.
