Paris Hilton caught in cat fight claim

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 to allow Paris - who he insists never retaliated against her assailant - to 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 went straight to the Los Angeles Police Department's Hollywood Division where she filed a report alleging battery.
Police took photos of both women at the station, though it is not known if either had visible injuries.Shanna statement claims that Stavros poured a drink over her head and then shoved her down some stairs.Some of the dancers from US TV show 'Dancing with the Stars' reportedly witnessed the incident.
