Hollywood exec Joanne Horowitz charged with assaulting cop

A
top
Hollywood
exec
has
been
arrested
and
charged
with
assaulting
a
cop
with
a
deadly
weapon
after
a
bizarre
series
of
events
led
her
to
get
entangled
with
police
at
a
Trump
rally.

Page
Six
is
told
that
Joanne
Horowitz
—who
has
managed
Kevin
Spacey
and
Scott
Eastwood,
among
many
other

was
returning
a
pair
of
shoes
in
Beverly
Hills
just
before
the
2020
election,
and
accidentally
found
her
car
caught
up
in
a
march
for
the
former
president
on
her
way
home.

Cops
told
us
that
they
spotted
the
exec,
68,
driving
 the
wrong
way
down
Beverly
Drive,
presumably
in
an
attempt
to
escape
the
horde,
and
pulled
her
over
 —
but
she
“fled.”
The
cop
gave
chase,
and
pulled
her
over
again.

“As
the
officer
was
contacting
the
driver
a
second
time,
she
remained
uncooperative,
turned
her
steering
wheel
toward
the
officer
and
fled
in
her
vehicle,
causing
the
officer
to
have
to
jump
out
of
the
way
to
avoid
being
struck,”
the
Beverly
Hills
police
department
told
us.
They
stopped
her
again
and
arrested
her.

During
the
debacle
she
seems
to
have
drawn
the
ire
of
demonstrators.
In
a

video
of
the
incident
,
they
can
be
heard
cheering
on
the
cop
who
chased
her,
and
chanting,
“Lock
her
up,”
as
she
was
arrested.

But
her
attorney
Shane
Bernard
told
us,
“We
would
like
to
be
clear
in
that
we
unequivocally
maintain
her
innocence.
At
the
time
of
the
incident,
Ms.
Horowitz
was
under
extreme
duress
as
she
was
being
accosted
by
a
maskless
sheriff
and
surrounded
by
angry
protesters
who
were
attacking
her
vehicle
screaming
‘lock
her
up’
as
well
as
anti-Semitic
remarks.”

She
was
also
charged
with
evading
a
police
officer
and
resisting
or
obstructing
a
public
officer.

She
was
released
on
a
$75,000
bond
and
is
due
in
court
next
month.

Horowitz
was
dubbed
the
“first-ever
celebrity
wrangler”
by
The
Hollywood
Reporter
because
she
was
once
in
charge
of
bringing
stars
including
Michael
Jackson,
Liza
Minnelli
and
Cher
to
Studio
54.
In
2018,
she

told
The
Post

about
that
period
of
her
life.
She
says
she
was
paid
to
get
items
about
the
club
into
Page
Six.

She
later
became
a
VP
of
PR
at
United
Artists
Pictures,
where
she
worked
with
Alec
Baldwin,
Christopher
Reeve
and
Robert
Downey
Jr.,
according
to
The
Hollywood
Reporter.
She
was
also
a
producer
on
2004
movie
“Beyond
The
Sea,”
which
starred
Spacey,
Kate
Bosworth,
John
Goodman
and
Bob
Hoskins.
