Pia Zadora

SWAT Team Swarmed

After She Allegedly Chokes Son

6/3/2013 9:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


We now know why former Broadway star Pia Zadora was arrested in Vegas over the weekend ... she allegedly tried to choke out her son ... TMZ has learned.

Zadora -- who famously appeared in the Academy Award disaster scene in "Naked Gun 33⅓"  -- got into an argument Friday night with her 16-year-old son Jordan because he refused to go to bed at a timely hour.

Jordan told police he wanted to stay outside and talk to his stepbrother, so Zadora sprayed them with a hose to force them inside.

Jordan told cops his stepbrother tried to calm Pia down and she attacked him, punching him and scratching his face. 

An hour or 2 passed, and -- according to the police report -- Jordan tried calling 911.  He claims Pia tried to take his phone away, choking him in the process.

When cops arrived, they say everyone in the house -- Pia, her son and stepson, as well as her husband -- refused to come out to speak to them ... so SWAT formed a perimeter around the house.

Pia and her son Jordan eventually came out and spoke to police, and, according to the police report, Pia admitted she may have injured/scratched Jordan and her stepson during the scuffle ... but only by accident.

ok. so everybody includingthis punk ass dad was there. why didnt this punk bastard step in and defuse the situation before anyone got choked. not only that, no need to get violent, just take away a lot of the money you spend on spoiled ass rich kids. they would have fallen in line real quick.

I worked in a department store in 1984 and she came in with shoes, old worn out shoes, that had been discontinued 2 years prior. She pitched a fit because we wouldn't allow her to return them. She got the store manager involved because she was screaming "do you know who I am????!!!!???" .. We were looking her square in her face saying "No, ma'am ... we don't."

lol!!! She got more pissed because we didn't know her than she did about not being allowed to return the busted up shoes. lol!!

I remember her. She was suppose to be hot in the 80's but really wasn't.

This is what Jodi Arias will look like in 20 years.

Hmmm. 16 year old boy doesn't have the strength to fend off his near elderly mother? Well, if he's disabled OK, otherwise he needs to either hit the weight room or this is a revenge call.

Urban legend has it that she was doing a terrible job as Anne Frank in a theater production, so when the Nazis entered her home, someone in the audience shouted, "She's in the attic!"

I'm 62 years old and remember her history. She was a whore/who prostituted herself to an old rich man for his money. Then he actually married the whore. He paid many people to make her relevant in showbiz. She had no talent, just her petite sexy body that I'm sure made the old man think her was fvcking a girl. He bought her recognition in Hollywood, including an award for the best new actress. But look what this girl turned into. A pumpkin faced old ugly woman. Now she has to pay men to fvck her. Not even the common Police man that she married wants to stay with this slut.
