New York - A grandson of the late Princess Grace of Monaco has been briefly hospitalised after a brawl in a New York City nightclub.
Prince Pierre Casiraghi suffered cuts to his face during the brawl. Former nightclub owner Adam Hock was arraigned on Sunday on charges of assaulting the prince and three friends at the Double Seven nightspot in Manhattan's Meatpacking District.
An attorney who represents the 24-year-old prince tells The Associated Press that Casiraghi was treated at a hospital and released after Saturday's brawl. Attorney Richard Golub says Casiraghi's group did not "instigate anything" or provoke the attack.
But Hock tells the New York Post that the prince and his entourage "were being completely obnoxious", verbally abusing women with him.
Also punched in the melee was shipping heir Stavros Niarchos III.
