Jessica White arrested for assault

She was out in town celebrating her breakup from Sean Penn but she got carried away too much.

According to her attorney, “Jessica was out with a bunch of friends celebrating her new single status. She just ended her relationship with Sean Penn and was celebrating.”

Reports inform that while she was celebrating in New York City’s Avenue Lounge she assaulted a woman by repeatedly hitting her in the face and pulled her hair.

Therefore, she was arrested and was held in custody 12 hours.

Her attorney added: “There were at least five witnesses that will be able to corroborate her (White’s) story and confirm that her conduct was not criminal in nature.”

White is not “the type of woman who gets into cat fights. Stories concerning celebrities frequently get blown up and I am confident that the air will be released a blown up story that has obviously been over inflated.”
