Paris' cat fight
13:30 05 October 2006
Paris Hilton and Shanna Moakler, ex-wife of Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, were involved in a fight during the early hours of Wednesday morning (04.10.06).
Paris - who was recently spotted kissing Travis - filed a police report in the early hours alleging that Moakler punched her in the jaw at Los Angeles' Hyde nightclub.
Meanwhile, Shanna gave a police statement claiming that Paris' ex-boyfriend, Stavros Niarchos, pushed her down some stairs.
The 'Simple Life' star's publicist, Elliot Mintz, claims that at approximately 1.10am his client was approached by Shanna who screamed obscenities at her and then punched her in the face.
Mintz added that Shanna had to be restrained by several people so Paris - who he insists never retaliated against her assailant - could leave the nightclub.
Mintz said: "I would encourage Paris, with the consent of her attorney, to seek a restraining order against Shanna to prevent any escalation of this irrational and dangerous behaviour."
Following the incident, Paris immediately went to the Los Angeles Police Department's Hollywood Division where she filed a report alleging battery.
Police took photographs of both women. It is not known if either had visible injuries.
Some of the dancers from US TV show 'Dancing with the Stars', in which Shanna was a contestant, reportedly witnessed the incident.
