Emile Hirsch is checking into rehab after being charged with assault on a booze-fueled night. Hirsch is accused of putting a choke-hold on a woman at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

The actor was charged with felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor intoxication for attacking Daniele Bernfeld, a Paramount Pictures studio executive, on January 25. Witnesses say Hirsch dragged her across a table and then the floor, ending up on top of her.

Hirsch’s lawyer, Robert Offer, issued a statement on the matter:

“Emile consumed an enormous amount of alcohol on the evening in question and he has no memory of what happened.

Emile takes these allegations very seriously, and is devastated that any of this has occurred. A few days after the incident, Emile sought help and checked himself into an alcohol rehabilitation facility, where he remains today, to ensure nothing like this ever happens again.”

Hirsch’s court date is set for March 16th. If convicted, he could serve up to five years in prison and pay a fine of $5,000.
