The model is the son of hotshots Helena Christensen and Norman Reedus. He just made his debut just a week ago on the cover of Vogue Hommes.
Mingus Lucien Reedus was captured on Friday night for punching a lady he didn’t know at the San Gennaro Festival in Little Italy according to report by E! Online.
As indicated by the New York City Police Department’s DCPI, specialists reacted to an emergency approach about an attack that happened around Mulberry Street and Baxter Street close to the 5th Precinct.
The woman asserted she had an argument with the model and later, punched her in the face. She was taken to New York-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan Hospital with a cut under her left eye, added by the NYPD.
Mingus addressed The New York Daily News about the experience, claiming that the person in question and her companions came after him and his gathering at the San Gennaro celebration in the city’s Little Italy locale.
According to him, he “threw his arm out” to protect himself from the woman and inadvertently hit her. “It was instinct,” he defended his action. “I was reacting to them swarming me and was afraid for the safety of my group.”
He continued by saying that five girls followed them for “two blocks” and how they kept “throwing food” and “yelling” at them. “We told them to leave us alone, but they kept following, threatening to hurt my girlfriend and her friend.”
“These girls swarmed me, one pulling my hair from the back, another throwing water in my face,” he added. “Ten seconds later the police got involved… Police saw one of the girls hurt and refused to listen to the context. My intention for that day was to mind my own business and play fair games.”
He got a desk appearance ticket for misdemeanor assault and was released. He is expected in court in the impending weeks.
