Emile Hirsch, who is in town to promote Ten Thousand Saints for the Sundance Film Festival, allegedly assaulted a female partygoer at the TAO pop-up nightclub on Sunday.

According to Page Six, cops arrived to the scene around 3:30 a.m. following an incident between Hirsch and a female film executive who works for Paramount Pictures.

“Something happened between the movie exec and Emile, and she said she had been assaulted and asked security to call the police. Emile didn’t leave the scene, and calmly waited for the police to arrive, and spoke with them until around 5 a.m., after which he went home with his friends. No arrests were made,” a source said.

Another insider told Us Weekly, “The executive was looking into pressing charges against Emile this morning.”

The Park City Police Department since released a statement reading, “We are still investigating the case and cannot provide details at this time.” An official report will be released once the investigation is complete.
