The son of supermodel Helena Christensen and ‘The Walking Dead’ star Norman Reedus has been charged with misdemeanor assault over an alleged attack on a stranger.
Mingus Reedus, 21, was taken into custody in New York City Friday night after purportedly punching a 24-year-old woman in the face while attending Manhattan’s San Gennaro street festival.
Mingus – who has followed in his famous mom’s footsteps and become a runway model – has since been released by authorities.
The alleged victim was rushed to hospital and treated for facial injuries.
Sources told The New York Daily News that Mingus did not know the woman, and he attacked her after they became embroiled in an argument.
The incident comes just one week after Mingus made his Vogue cover debut.
He is featured on the cover of the Vogue Hommes Paris’ fall-winter 2021-2022 issue alongside Parker Van Noord, son of the late male model Andre Van Noord.

Mingus Reedus, the son of superstars Norman Reedus and Helena Christensen, was recently arrested for assaulting a woman in New York City.
He continued, “We didn’t think anything of it, but these five girls followed us for two blocks, throwing food at us and yelling. We told them to leave us alone, but they kept following, threatening to hurt my girlfriend and her friend.”
“These girls swarmed me,” he alleged, “one pulling my hair from the back, another throwing water in my face.”
Mingus recalled throwing his arms out to defend himself from the woman and her friends when he hit one of them.
“Ten seconds later the police got involved,” Mingus shared. “Police saw one of the girls hurt and refused to listen to the context. My intention for that day was to mind my own business and play fair games.”
According to the outlet, the star is expected in court in the upcoming weeks.
