Swimsuit model Jessica White may be going to the slammer after she assaulted Vanessa Kia in Manhattan New York. White will go on trial for the altercation on May 27th, where she could possibly receive jail time and/ or a fine.
According to the Huffington Post, White 26 ”pulled the victim’s hair and struck [the victim] numerous times in the face with her hand, causing abrasions, swelling and substantial pain.”
White’s lawyer Mark Heller told RadarOnline.com, “Jessica was out with a bunch of friends celebrating her new single status. She just ended her relationship with Sean Penn and was celebrating.”
During her court date on Tuesday, Jessica White and her lawyer turned down a plea deal that included two days of community service, two days of anger management and a $446.96 restitution fine. Heller stated to the New York Post, that the surveillance tapes will show that White did nothing wrong and that the complainant Kia threw herself at White’s group and started pushing and fighting with them.
“The video shows she was running after my client from behind. She recognized she was Jessica White, and was shouting, ‘You’re a celebrity. I’m going to take you down,’” said Heller.
