Emile Hirsch Charged with Felony Assault on Female Film Executive

Emile Hirsch has officially been charged with third degree felony aggravated assault stemming from an incident that occurred during the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

According to TMZ, the 29-year-old actor allegedly attacked Paramount executive Daniele Bernfeld at around 3:00AM on Sunday (January 25) at Tao nightclub in Park City.

Hirsch appeared intoxicated and asked [Bernfeld] why she looked ‘so tough’ and said she was a ‘rich kid’ who should not be at Sundance,” law enforcement officials told the site.

Bernfeld told cops she moved away to sit with friends when Emile came up to her and “put her in a chokehold.” Then he allegedly “pulled her across the table and onto the floor” and landed on top of her, and began to choke her.

She says she felt as though “the front and back of her throat were touching and she remembers things going dark” when two bystanders pulled him off of her.

Emile admitted to having a “verbal confrontation” with her after a few drinks.

If convicted, Emile can serve up to five years in prison. He was also charged with misdemeanor intoxication and is due in court on March 16.

    How does “Dummy” help your case?

  • Legendary Trolly

    You just sat up here and accused her of slander dummy when he admitted that he was in the wrong and had a problem dummy!

    And btw, why would you want us to write the company to get her fired all because she was a victim of abuse? Does that sound right dummy? After what she has been through we should go and get the girl fired, Stoopid?

  • Calvin

    That’s it for him.. just like Chris Brown, Reese Witherspoon .. celebrities should stay off alcohol if they don’t want their true colours to come out.
