The Cider House Rules actress stands accused of throwing a glass at former The City star Samantha Swetra and punching her in the face.
Swetra was partying with Lindsay Lohan at a New York bar on Saturday night (19Mar11) when de la Huerta arrived and started flirting with Swetra's male friend, reports TMZ.com.
The TV star allegedly started making fun of De La Huerta for being so drunk, prompting the actress to retaliate and reportedly lash out at Swetra, before being escorted from the venue.
Swetra, who was later seen sporting a bruised face and a swollen lip, filed a police report on Wednesday (23Mar11).
De la Huerta is due in court on 18 April (11).
