Hank Williams Jr. May Go To Trial For Waitress 'Attack'
The waitress, Holly Hornbeak, testified she had bruising on her neck and that she was hoarse the day after she was allegedly abused by the star, who she also claims shouted obscenities at her in the foyer of a local hotel in March. The tirade apparently kicked off when Hornbeak claimed not to know who he was, to which he responded, "I'm Hank Williams Jr., bitch," before attempting unsuccessfully to kiss her.
A private lawyer hired by Hornbeak's parents demanded $250,000 from Williams two days later. Hornbeak says, "It was a serious attack and this is not something you take lightly."
After the alleged attack, Hornbeak claims Williams' publicist, Kirt Webster, gave her his phone number and offered her a free pass to a Williams concert that weekend. However, Williams' defense lawyer Leslie Ballin told the jury on Monday, "She didn't go to a doctor, she didn't take pictures of these alleged red marks and bruises. C'mon now." He added later, "Talking about victims? I'm representing one here. This is an attempt at a financial hijacking. There was no assault."
If Williams is convicted, he could face up to 11 months and 29 days in jail, as well as a fine.
