A Hollywood socialite who has been romantically linked to Madonna and Naomi Campbell has been arrested and charged with felony assault.
Chris Paciello and Los Angeles nightclub boss Reza Roohi were reportedly caught on camera beating up a man in Hollywood on Saturday night (16Aug08). An attorney for Roohi, who runs popular celebrity hang-out Villa, insists his client was trying to keep the peace.
Paciello, who is currently on parole for another offence, and Roohi were booked on felony assault charges, according to TMZ.com.
The victim of the attack was left with injuries, but none of them were life threatening.
