I grew up and live in NY and I take some offense to your statement. All NY streets are NOT filled with drunks and dopeheads at this hour of the morning - it depends where one is. Rich playboys tend to have an "entourage" around them. They will be protected from those "drunks and dopeheads" but alas not from other rich playboys.

According to Vanity Fair, Beatrice was there too when Pierre had been assaulted without provoking the aggressor.

Some witnesses said he was speaking with Beatrice when he got punched. He immediately left the club, called the police and pressed charges against the man.

I think, Pierre, and his friends, barked up the wrong tree. It sounds like he and his entourage were fairly obnoxious.

Yes it does.

If it's true that Pierre tried to hit Hock over the head with a bottle (according to many witnesses present) then I have to say he deserved what he got.
Why did he even approach that table?
The person who called him Eurotrash was correct.

facts

Actually witnesses said he got punched out of the blue.

One more thought: do you guys really think he would have hit on some girls if he was there with Beatrice? It doesn't make any sense.

On the other hand Adam Hock, the man who assaulted Pierre, has a history of nightclub fights.

Try to put yourself in Pierre's shoes: according to every witness that saw what happened - apart (obviously) from Hock and his lawyer - that man punched Pierre unprovoked. In fact Hock didn't get punch at all. Also, all of them were with their girlfriends (Niarchos with model Jessica Hart and Pierre with Beatrice).

Why would they annoy other's people girlfriends in front of their own? And moreover, can you imagine how painful must it be for Pierre, if he actually was the victim of a drunk (or worst) violent man, to read in the press that he deserved it?

Wonder what would Mom Caroline & Uncle Albert say about this nightmare? I do hope Pierre learns a thing or two from this mess & stays away from this crowd as we know nothing good comes out of it.

There seems to be conflicting information about what actually happened. I think we need to wait for the court case to see what happened.

LOL! This reminds me of a friend who lived on NYC's Upper East Side while modeling for Eileen Ford in the 90's...when I visited her she would always say only "lowlifes" are on the streets after midnight!

Hopefully Pierre's handsome face will not be permanently damaged.

UPDATE: Monaco's Prince Pierre Casiraghi in hospital after vicious brawl in Manhattan nightclub | Mail Online

Quote:
The 24-year-old prince, son of Princess Caroline and grandson of Grace Kelly, allegedly got into a fight with a stranger at an exclusive New York nightclub because he was ‘jealous’ of him. Hock is said to have punched Pierre and sent him flying into a table on the other side of the room, where he landed with blood pouring from his face. ‘Pierre’s face looked broken, with deep cuts and blood everywhere,’ said one witness. ‘He looked like he needed plastic surgery.’ The 47-year-old was arrested and later appeared in court, charged with four counts of assault against Prince Pierre and three of his friends.

Its been on the news here and reading up on some of the sites, there's a whole lot of not so good opinions about it all.

One article I read kind of puts it all into perspective so I thought I'd share it.

http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2012...ght-from-hell/

One thing I'd ask though that no matter what I read is the question "Did Hock have any clue whatsoever who the people who came up to his table were?"

It also doesn't make any sense to say that Pierre innocently strolled up to a table, and got punched out of the blue.

Who punches someone for no reason?

And why did Pierre approach that table in the first place, if he didn't know the people there?

The People article: Monaco's Pierre Casiraghi Bloodied in N.Y.C. Bar Brawl

Says that witnesses on BOTH sides state that Pierre attempted to hit Mr. Hock over the head (which would constitute aggrivated battery) with a bottle of grey goose- that could kill someone. It seems to me that the arrogant young rich and royal boys messed with the wrong elder "bad a$$" (excuse my summary of Mr. Hock's character) Curious that the Pierre party was not charged in this matter!

Sound like Pierre and/or his group may have instigated the fight not knowing who they were dealing with. Maybe they were just joking around but Hock was clearly not amused. It will be interesting to see what both sides say about the other and who started it.

Also, as a non-New Yorker who loves NY and frequently visit, the streets of NY are quite safe and are not filled with dopeheads and drunks. I'd say you're likely to find the drugs in the more elite circles that Pierre moves in but that's neither here nor there

Mama's not happy:

A source with connections to the Casiraghi clan said, “Both the Monaco royals and the Niarchos families are very embarrassed.

“Caroline is furious, and the Niarchos family is very embarrassed. They don’t want it splashed over the papers.”

According to other sources Beatrice wasn't there instead. If she were why did he need courting other women? In case he did in her presence, well... Beatrice herself would have sent him to hospital (like she'd done with her ex boyfriend)...

Pierre and his friends are all known to hang out with these models, especially Valdimir considering who his mother is, so to me it sounds like the boys went over to talk with their friends and this Hock guy became jealous that all their attention wasn't focused on him and his pals anymore and instigated the fight. I'm not saying Pierre is blameless, but Hock sounds like the bigger jerk to me.
