“Page Six” is following up on its report that Emile Hirsch might have assaulted a Paramount exec over the weekend, with new sources revealing that Hirsch allegedly had the woman in a chokehold. Hirsch is at Sundance to promote his film Ten Thousand Saints and was spotted at the Park City, Utah’s Tao Nightclub over the weekend, reportedly tussling with Paramount Digital Entertainment vice-president Dani Bernfeld. “Emile was aggressively picking on Dani,” said a source. He then inexplicably snapped and “got even more aggressive. … He pushed Dani up against a table, and then he put her in a headlock.”
Another source claimed that Hirsch, 29, attacked the 31-year-old woman from behind — “he completely blindsided her after he’d been shit-talking and was already led away from her once.” Hirsch was not arrested at the scene, but Park City police said they are still investigating the encounter and that a county sheriff will decide if there will be any charges. All other parties have yet to comment on the matter.
