Amy Winehouse would be so proud of Kristy Swanson.
The British singer, who recently beat up new husband Blake Fielder-Civil can relate to the Skating with Celebrities star after Swanson was arrested late Saturday night for allegedly assaulting the ex-wife of her companion and former skating partner, Lloyd Eisler.
“I had to go the police station where I had an appointment at 9 p.m. to begin the process of being arrested,” the former Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress told People magazine.
Swanson claims she was attacked by O’Brien in front of Eisler and O’Brien’s children. The actress’s rep, Michael Sands, says Swanson plans to press charges against O’Brien, saying that police took photographs of her back and other parts of her upper extremities to document the injuries. Sean Stewart can probably put her in touch with a good lawyer for this sort of thing.
O’Brien declined to comment, except when asked if she attacked Swanson, she replied: “Why have I not been charged?”
Canadian police also declined to comment, maybe because they were busy surfing celebrity gossip sites to see if Nicole Richie is really pregnant or not.
Eisler, a former world champion pairs skater, and Swanson met in 2006 while filming the FOX reality series; their romance created a scandal in the skating community when Eisler left his pregnant wife for her.
No news, however, on whether or not JR Rotem also had wheelbarrow-like sex with Swanson.
