Actress Taryn Manning was arrested today after she allegedly got into a fight with her assistant, Holliann Hartman. Manning allegedly punched, scratched and kicked Holliann Hartman in the face; scratched her face and neck; choked her; and slammed her head against the floor and wall, according to the criminal complaint released at her arraignment Friday morning according to NYDailyNews.“They had a late-night argument that turned into a bit of a physical altercation,” Manning’s attorney, Joseph Tacopina said. Manning was charged with misdemeanor assault and choking. She is order to stay away from her assistant until the next court date on Nov. 13.

“If you know about Taryn, and her track record and her background, she’s not a petulant little kid,” said Tacopina. “She’s a 33-year-old, serious, well-accomplished actress, artist who is here promoting her song on Vh1.” He said Hartman called to say she does not wish to pursue the case. He could not say if alcohol was involved.”She’s part of the Manning family,” said Tacopina of the assistant. “She stays with the mother and Taryn in California.” He would not say exactly what the argument was about. “There are some personal issues that they’ve had,” he said. “Disagreements that friends who spend every waking moment together have on occasion.”The incident occurred early Thursday morning at 5 a.m. in the actress’ room at the swanky Dream Downtown hotel on W. 16th St. She was booked Thursday night.
