CSI star takes a beating

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’ star Eric Szmanda is nursing his ego after being punched in a bar on Hawaiian island Kauai – by a woman. The actor, who plays forensics sleuth Greg Saunders on the hit show, was holidaying with friends recently when they decided to check out a local tavern on the island. After posing for pictures with fellow holidaymakers and locals, Eric was leaving the bar when he was confronted by “a big Samoan woman.” He recalls, “I thought she wanted to shake my hand, but she clocked me in the face.” The actor is clueless as to why he became a victim: “Maybe she didn’t like my Hollywood kind in her bar.” Hawaiian police detectives are investigating the bar brawl.
