The 21 year old was taken into custody on Friday (24Sep21) night after allegedly punching a 24-year-old woman in the face during the San Gennaro street festival in Manhattan's Little Italy area.
He was then charged with misdemeanour assault before being released, according to the New York Daily News.
Sources suggest the female was not previously known to the young model but the incident occurred after the two became embroiled in an argument. She was reportedly treated at NY Downtown Hospital for a laceration beneath her left eye.

Back in a 2013 interview, the actor praised his son Mingus for his patience. "He doesn't freak out about anything. He's so calm, cool and collected," the proud dad told Elle magazine. "He used to come in my room and wake me up. He'd go, 'Get up! Get up!' when he was younger. And I'd say, 'Ah, five more minutes.' And then he'd just sit there, stare at me, and in a whisper, 'I love you like the ocean.' And I'd be like, 'Okay, I'll get up.' "
