Shocking video has emerged of socialite Jacqueline Kent Cooke, the daughter of former Washington Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke, brawling on a New York City sidewalk on Wednesday night.
Cooke was arrested after allegedly saying “hurry up, Jew” and then hitting a lawyer in the head with an expensive glass purse, the New York Daily News reported.
Lawyer Matthew Haberkorn, 52, told the News that Cooke lost her temper while waiting behind his 77-year-old mother in the coat-check line after a New Year’s Eve event at Caravaggio on E. 74th St. near Madison Ave., a high-end Manhattan restaurant.
“Hurry up, Jew,” Cooke said, according to Haberkorn, who was also joined at Caravaggio by his wife and four daughters.
Haberkorn confronted Cooke, and the socialite’s boyfriend took that opportunity to make fun of the man’s daughters, saying “Happy bat mitzvah, girls,” according to news reports.
Outside the restaurant, Haberkorn told reporters that the exchange of words continued until Cooke violently “smashed” him in the head with her glass purse, causing a gaping, bleeding wound.
One of Haberkorn’s daughters whipped out her cell phone and began taping the aftermath of the incident, which was obtained by the media. In the footage, Haberkorn can he heard shouting, “She just f—ing hit me.”
Cooke shoots back that the lawyer “called me a f—ing bitch, you called me a c—.”
“You called me a f—ing Jew,” Haberkorn replied.
Cooke’s boyfriend then accuses Haberkorn of “throwing a woman on the floor,” which he immediately denied, as seen in the video.
Cooke was charged with assault Wednesday evening.
The Daily Mail reported that during the alleged assault, Cooke hit Haberkorn with a Lulu Guinness Chloe Mirrored Perspex Box Clutch, which retails for about $300.
This was not the first time Cooke made a spectacle of herself in public. In 2008, she reportedly asked Boston cops during a DUI arrest whether they knew who her father was.
She also “pulled up her skirt to moon the officer, and then gave him the middle finger, before eventually getting into the BMW and starting the engine,” according to Deadspin.
In 2007, she reportedly filed a lawsuit against the executors of her father’s estate, claiming that she had to drop out of college due to lack of funds and was suffering from depression according to a report on Fox News.

Drunken Jew-hating Jacqueline Kent Cooke arrested. Her moronic Nazi boyfriend should’ve been put in the slammer, too. Under alcohol, Cooke showed her true “personality.” https://t.co/vavmJVmewF
