While partying in Toronto, famous Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton claimed he was assaulted in a series of tweets. Hilton's Twitter account of the attack claims that Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am assaulted him at a hotel late Sunday evening. Perez Hilton claims that Will.i.am and his security guards assaulted him.
The omnipresent reach of TMZ allowed them to scavenge this 'caught on tape' cellphone video of the alleged attack.
Hilton made the charges on Twitter, claiming "I was assaulted by Will. I. Am of the Black Eyed Peas and his security guards. I am bleeding. Please, I need to file a police report. No joke."
Will. I. Am denied the charge, also via Twitter.
Hours later, Will.i.am posted a video response to Perez Hilton's allegations, stating that Hilton was very aggressive and insulting, and that an unknown fan, not Will.i.am, assaulted the celebrity blogger.
UPDATE: Toronto police have arrested Polo Molina (aka Molina Liborio), the 36-year-old manager of the Black Eyed Peas, and charged him with one count of assault. They said no further charges were pending and Molina is due in court on August 5.

Hilton was criticised for apparently twittering about the attack before calling for police, but later he claimed he had called them, but they weren't showing up. Hilton's twitter fans deluged the Toronto police with calls to assist him, until Perez asked them to stop.
