2005_04_pussypastore.jpgVincent Pastore, who beat up his girlfriend last week, surrendered to the police and was arraigned for misdemeanor assault yesterday. Pastore's now ex-fiancee, Lisa Regina, accused him of beating her on Mott Street, possibly because she was running late during their trip to her family in NJ. Gothamist found out that a friend actually witnessed part of this exchange: She didn't realize it was Pastore - she thought it was a "big Italian guy yelling at his girlfriend," plus throwing her clothes out of the car. Anyway, Regina's lawyer told the media they don't want Pastore to kill Regina, but Dominic Barbara, the celebrity lawyer that Pastore has retained, said, "This is a very gentle man who is anything but what the charges are against him." Yeah, right.

Thanks to a phalanx of media and paparazzi, we know that Pastore got a hot dog as soon as he left the courthouse, telling reporters, "I didn't eat all day." And cityrag, who first discovered that Pastore's website still had photos of Regina on it, notes that Pastore's people pulled the pics - but cityrag has stashed them!
