Emile Hirsch—who is facing real jail time after allegedly putting a female film executive in a headlock at a party last month—just checked himself into rehab, TMZ reports.
According to reports, Hirsch was questioned by police last month after allegedly attacking Paramount exec Dani Bernfeld at a Sundance Film Festival party in Park City, Utah.
According to TMZ, police say "Hirsch appeared intoxicated and asked [movie exec Daniele Bernfeld] why she looked 'so tough' and said she was a 'rich kid' who should not be at Sundance."
Bernfeld told police ... she moved away from Hirsch to go sit with a friend at a table — and moments later, Hirsch came up from behind her and "put her in a chokehold."
Then, Bernfeld claims Hirsch "pulled her across the table and onto the floor" and landed on top of her.
While on top, he allegedly wrapped his hands around her neck and began to choke her. She said she felt as though "the front and back of her throat were touching and she remembers things going dark."
Bernfeld says 2 bystanders eventually pulled Hirsch off of her.
On Thursday—the same day Hirsch was charged with felony assault—his spokesperson announced he'd checked into rehab for alcohol addiction.
"The facts that I can relay are that he consumed an enormous amount of alcohol on the evening in question and he has no memory of what happened," he tells TMZ.
