Model Mingus Lucien Reedus, son of supermodel Helena Christensen and “Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus, was arrested Friday night for punching a woman he didn’t know at the San Gennaro Festival in Little Italy.
Reedus, 21, who lives in Chelsea, was busted after a woman said she had an argument with him and he punched her in the face, police said. The incident took place near Mulberry Street and Baxter Street.
The 24-year-old woman was taken to New York-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan Hospital with a cut under her left eye, according to the NYPD.
Mingus, who models using his middle name, just a week ago made his debut on the cover of Vogue Hommes.
His mom, one of the original Angels for Victoria’s Secret, shared snaps from the photo shoot on her Instagram.
Reedus, who was reportedly at the festival with his girlfriend, got a desk appearance ticket for misdemeanor assault and was released, cops said.
The arrest was the second of the night at the annual festival.
Earlier, Eleni Dottin, 24, of Little Neck, Queens, was arrested for punching a woman who stepped in to try to stop what became a brawl at Il Piccolo Buffalo on Mulberry Street.
Dottin was also charged with assault in the melee, which was partially captured on video by GOP mayoral nominee and Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa.
