Actress's planned plea in NYC bar scrap postponed

Actress Paz de la Huerta (HWEHR'-tah) and prosecutors have hashed out a plea deal in her clash with a former reality TV figure in a chic New York bar. But a judge wants some more information.

The "Boardwalk Empire" actress was set to plead guilty Thursday to harassment in her March run-in with Samantha Swetra. But a judge sought more detail on alcohol counseling that's part of the plea agreement, along with a day of community service.

De la Huerta is due back in court July 28. Harassment is a violation, not a crime.

The 26-year-old actress was charged with assault and other offenses. Authorities said she bloodied Swetra's nose and hurled a glass that cut Swetra's leg at the Standard Hotel.

Swetra appeared on the MTV reality series "The City."
