DiCaprio Slashing Suspect -- Finally Behind Bars

7/30/2010 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the woman accused of slashing Leonardo DiCaprio's face open with a drinking glass back in 2005 has been extradited back to the United States ... where she will finally face justice.

Sources tell us 40-year-old Aretha Wilson took a flight from Canada to Los Angeles last night accompanied by law enforcement officials.  We're told she's currently in custody awaiting trial.

As we previously reported, Wilson is accused of hitting DiCaprio in the face during a house party in the Hollywood Hills in 2005. The party was at the home of Rick Salomon -- Paris Hilton's sex tape partner.

Authorities claim Leo needed 17 stitches to close up his face and ear.

Wilson -- who had been arrested in L.A. and charged with assault with a deadly weapon -- fled the country after the alleged attack.

For one thing TMZ should get their facts strait she left the country before they laid charges not after. Furthermore Iv just read all these comments and not a one has asked the most important question... what was his part in this? is it so beleivable that a woman can fly off the handle for no reason at all? If she is a ex of a friend of his they must have known each other and there is more to this story then we all know. A more believable occurence would have been the two of them had drink to much getting into a dispute and it escalating. My question to the reporters at TMZ is what did leo say or do to her to push her over the edge what was his part in it. why doesnt someone get her side of the story.

I think the photo that is circulating is from another incident. Just look at him, he's too young on that pic. I recall a fight he was involved in back in Thailand while filming the Beach, I think the pic is from that incident, since no pictures have been released from the 2005 assault.

what exactly did dicaprio do to have someone get angry enough to attack their face with a broken bottle? Because there is no mention... so it must have been dicaprios fault... thats usually why the perpetrators side of the story is not told... because it would either make us hate leo like we do mel gibson... or its even worse than that... but the truth will come out .. though it will be revamped by tmz and every other rumor mill to be what they need it to be.. or whatever dicaprio or his representatives want. Big business is big money.. and big money always leads to criminal acts that are portrayed as RIGHT... when they are the farthest from it.

Come on, who can not believe that is the paid back to Leo for something behind door between Paris Hilton their partner and Leo. We have white trash people also even with money. But, the fact that Leo wants to cover up everything, it is not good. He was doing some crap and the other thing he spend to much energy in the wrong person because if that happen to me they have to move the house. If I go to a party and a jerk lady is there and she attack me, the owner of the house is responsible. I took it personal with them not question.
