Boardwalk Empire actress Paz de la Huerta has formally been charged with third-degree assault stemming for her March 20 confrontation with The City cast member Samantha Swetra. According to court documents, Swetra accuses de la Huerta of striking her in her face with a closed fist causing her nose and mouth to bleed. Swetra also claims she felt a glass hit her leg, causing cuts and bleeding, and that a bystander named Gavin Doyle told her de la Huerta threw it at her. De la Huerta has a May 19 court date. In addition to the assault charges, de la Huerta was also arraigned for criminal possession of a weapon and harassment.
