Adler, known for ties to stars, arrested in Fargo

Fargo police arrested musician Cisco Adler, known for romantic relationships with models and actresses such as Paris Hilton, early Thursday morning after witnesses said he punched an employee in the nose following a brawl after his performance at The Hub.

Authorities were called to The Hub about 12:24 a.m. with a report of 15 people brawling and fighting security and management on the northeast corner of the building, according to police dispatch logs.

Police arrived to find several people scuffling and were told by witnesses that Adler had gotten into a disagreement with another male at the club, said Fargo Police Lt. Pat Claus. As Adler was being escorted out of the club, he allegedly punched an employee in the nose, Claus said.

Adler, 30, was arrested on suspicion of simple assault and booked into the Cass County Jail. There were no problems with the arrest, Claus said, adding that the employee made a citizen’s arrest before police arrived.

Adler, the son of music producer and director Lou Adler, was released from jail at 1:26 a.m. after posting $500 cash bail, according to jail officials.

Adler is the former frontman for the band Whitestarr. He left the band in 2008. Celebrity news outlets have reported that Adler has had romantic relationships with several celebrities, including actress Mischa Barton of “The O.C.,” Kimberly Stewart who is the daughter of Rod Stewart and Paris Hilton. He was engaged to Stewart at one point, according to www.imdb.com.

Adler was in town Wednesday performing at The Venue with hip-hop artist Schwayze. He was slated to perform Thursday night in St. Paul, according to his MySpace page.
