Aretha Wilson, 40, stands accused of attacking the movie star outside a 2005 party, leaving him with a bruised and bloodied face.

DiCaprio also reportedly needed medical assistance and 17 stitches following the encounter.

Wilson, a Canadian citizen, was recently extradited to the United States to face charges and Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Edmund Willcox Clarke Jr. ruled there was sufficient evidence for Wilson to face a trial for assault during a preliminary hearing on Thursday (26Aug10).

Wilson, who maintains DiCaprio started the altercation by reacting to remarks she was making about the actor and his friends, has been told to stay away from the star.

She will face one count of assault with a deadly weapon.
