Although she wasn’t the one to attack someone — it was her body guards.
According to court papers, William Bacardi was leaving the Townhouse bar in Venice when two of Huston’s security guards walked up to him. Huston lives in a condo across the street.
Bacardi claims that he left the bar in the early morning hours and was waiting for friends when the guards approached and asked him to leave.
"They demanded that the plaintiff [Bacardi] 'leave or we will remove you.' Plaintiff attempted to explain he was on a public sidewalk and was going to leave as soon as the rest of his party came outside."
When Bacardi refused to leave, things got ugly.
"The guard came up from behind, grabbed plaintiff's arms and repeatedly pushed him face first into a security gate in front of one of the local businesses using his baton as a bar behind plaintiff's neck."
Before they left him alone, Bacardi claims that they also hit him in the back and sprayed mace in his face.
Bacardi is suing Huston, the security guards, the company they work for, and the Townhouse bar for assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.
The lesson here:
don’t stand on a sidewalk in front of Anjelica Huston’s house don’t hire psychotic body guards.
