The grandson of the late Princess Grace of Monaco was briefly hospitalized after a brawl in a New York City nightclub.

Prince Pierre Casiraghi suffered cuts to his face during Saturday's brawl. Former nightclub owner Adam Hock was arraigned Sunday on charges of assaulting the prince and three friends at the Double Seven nightspot in Manhattan's Meatpacking District.

Attorney Richard Golub, who represents the 24-year-old prince, told The Associated Press that Casiraghi was treated at a hospital and released after the brawl.

Golub says Casiraghi's group did not "instigate anything" or provoke the attack.

But Hock told the New York Post that the prince and his entourage "were being completely obnoxious," verbally abusing the women with him. Also punched in the melee was shipping heir Stavros Niarchos III.
