The college town of Madison, Wisc., is a far cry from Manhattan’s tony prep schools, where you’d normally find the spoiled students of Bravo reality show NYC Prep. But last week, one Prep cast member brought more drama to a Madison bar than there ever was on the actual show.
OK! has learned that PC Peterson, one of the stars of NYC Prep, allegedly got into a brawl with a pushy fan and — according to witnesses — hit him with a metal napkin dispenser.
An eyewitness tells OK! that at around 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14, a 21-year-old approached PC at the Kollege Klub in Madison, where the reality star was visiting a friend.
PC agreed to take a picture with him, but then — according to a source close to PC — the fan harassed the 19-year-old by poking him, shoving him and putting his arms around him.
According to our eyewitness, “Maybe it was like 30 minutes [after they took the picture], he [the victim] went back up to say something, but I don’t remember what he said.
“I couldn’t hear it from where I was. And then all the sudden the kid turned around and [PC] grabbed a metal napkin dispenser and started slamming the kid in the head and he was gushing blood from his head.”
“So then him [PC] and the friend he was sitting with, they literally jumped out of the booth and ran out of the bar because I think he knew he was either going to get arrested or get in trouble,” added the eyewitness.
Police say that the victim, from Winnetka, Ill., flagged down a cop outside the bar.
The police report says that the victim had a .5-inch cut above his left eye. Cops are now looking for an unnamed suspect, whom they describe him as 5’9″, 140 lbs., and wearing a black hoodie with a red Chicago Bulls jersey over the hoodie, and a black skullcap at the time of the alleged attack.
PC was reached by OK!, but he declined to comment on this story.
Bravo also declined to comment.
Jordan Meier, manager of the Kollege Klub, told OK! that the bar’s staff were not aware of the incident.
