'Boardwalk Empire' Star -- Charged with Assault

4/19/2011 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

'Boardwalk Empire' star Paz de la Huerta was just charged with assault for allegedly attacking "City" star Samantha Swetra at an NYC party last month ... TMZ has learned.

Paz just appeared in criminal court in Manhattan -- where the D.A. filed 5 misdemeanor charges against de la Huerta ... including two counts of 3rd degree assault, 4th degree criminal possession of a weapon, attempted assault, and harassment.

The judge also granted a temporary restraining order against Paz -- which even prohibits Paz from contacting Samantha on Facebook.

As we first reported, Paz allegedly threw a drinking glass at Samantha and punched her in the face during a party at the Standard Hotel on March 22.

Paz is due back in court on May 19.

UPDATE: Prosecutors told the judge Paz trashed Samantha during her stint in the police station on the night of the incident ... saying, "I'm a REAL actress -- HBO! She's a publicity seeker, a FAKE actress."

Queen of the smash and grab    

She is really ugly, and looks used up. She's not much of an actress. Wasn't she involved with Michael Wincott a few years back? With her attitude she's going to get her junkie A$$ beat when she goes to jail.

What took so long? An ordinary civilian would have been arrested and charged right away.

Paz is acting like Chloe Sevigny used to (drinking, clubbing, partying), with the added element of violence. Her star is on the rise, so it's time to calm down and behave.

Although I personally don't find her to be attractive, she does play the role of a prostitute well on Boardwalk Empire. The role suits her.

I believe she has a serious drinking issue. Any photo I have seen of this "actress" shows her tumbling after partying or in an interview after a recent awards show, she was obviously drunk....slurring her words during the interview and pictured falling on her butt at an afterparty. Aside from her lack of self-control, this is not good publicity for any actress, no matter how good. She's an idiot.
