Taryn Manning arrested for brutally attacking a make-up artist, TMZ reports.
The 8 Mile and Hustle and Flow actress was in court this morning facing accusations that she punched her makeup artist in the face, after which she started kicking her in the face and torso, scratching her, grabbing her by the hair and slamming her against the floor and wall, and choking her. Manning is facing charges of assault in the third degree and criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation, she is currently on release from custody on her own recognizance.
According to a report from NYPD given to TMZ, Manning was taken into police custody early Thursday morning in her room at the Dream Downtown Hotel in New York after an anonymous call rang 911 to report a brawl involving Taryn and her 23-year-old make up artist. During the phone call, she was accused of punching and kicking the woman during a rather one-sided brawl.
The Dream Downtown has been the scene for all manner of celebrity ruckus recently, mostly involving Lindsay Lohan. It is the same place where LiLo allegedly hit a pedestrian with her Porsche and is also the same spot where she was hanging out with her mother before their infamous limo fight.
