by at .

Actor Emile Hirsch is best known for his roles in Into the Wild and Lone Survivor, but he might soon be more famous for his rap sheet than for his resume.

The New York Post reports that Hirsch is being investigated by police for his role in an assault on an unnamed female executive at Paramount Pictures.

The incident occurred around 3 am at Tao nightclub in Park City, Utah. Both Hirsch and the executive were in town for the Sundance Film Festival.

It's unclear at this time what exactly happened between Hirsch and the unidentified woman, but sources say she told police she was assaulted and implicated Hirsch in the attack.

"Something happened between the movie exec and Emile," says one witness. "She said she had been assaulted and asked security to call the police."

"Emile didn't leave the scene, and calmly waited for police to arrive, and spoke with them until around 5 am, after which he went home with his friends. No arrests were made."

Hirsch has long had a reputation as something of a Hollywood eccentric, but this is the first time he's been accused of involvement in anything so extreme as an assault.

The actor's last brush with the law came in 2012 when Hirsch was caught peeing on a cactus outside of a Hollywood restaurant.

Both Hirsch and Paramount Pictures have declined to comment on this latest incident. We'll have more information on this story as it becomes available.
