On Saturday, February 18, 2012, Their Serene Highnesses Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco attended a cocktail reception to celebrate the 8th Edition of the Challenge Albert II Rowing Competition.  The event was held at the Société Nautique de Monaco.

Meanwhile in New York City… Prince Albert II’s nephew, Pierre Casiraghi, was partying with his pals at the Double Seven club in the Meatpacking District on Saturday, February 18, 2012.  Witnesses at the club told the New York Post that Pierre and his pals “were being completely obnoxious”.

Any way, sometime during the night, Pierre and his pals annoyed the crap out of some big burly dude named Adam Hock and his friends.  Apparently, Pierre decided that it was cool to repeatedly take a “swig from $500 bottle of vodka on Hock’s table” as well as insult and harass Mr. Hock and his friends.

So, as time goes on Mr. Hock just couldn’t take it anymore.    Words were exchanged then all of a sudden… BAM! Mr. Hock punched Pierre — Mike Tyson style — in his pretty little face whereupon he “…flew across the room and landed on a table on the other side.”

Well, that sucks.

  1. I am looking forward to all of the details coming once the dust settles from the incident. But, I am really looking forward to that picture of Pierre’s face. If he flew across the room as it is being reported, his face must be in pretty bad shape. Ah, to live the life without a care in the world and be the recipient of one heck of a large trust fund. Maybe in the next life…hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s off to work I go.

  2. Your description of what (may have) occured was glorious! Much better than the other boring reports I’ve read.
