Hamptons Beat-Down Of Jewelers’ Son Shown In Photos

Photos have come out of the bloodied nose of Avery Arjang, the 18-year-old son of Manhattan jewelers who was punched in the face at a Hamptons gala by magazine magnate Michael Loeb.

The pictures, released by the New York Post and taken at a hospital after the beat-down, show Arjang’s nose bandaged, with blood on the teen’s shirt, chin and face. The incident occurred at Loeb’s Southampton home, during a benefit for special-needs children. Loeb, who used to own a magazine distribution company, is alleged to have been angered that one of Arjang’s friends got drunk at the party and had to be sent to the hospital, sending the 62-year-old into a violent rage.

Arjang is the son of Manhattan jewelers Edi Arjang and Margo Manhattan, who have created designs for the mass market and hawked their wares on the Home Shopping Network. Loeb has been charged with misdemeanor assault, and is going to be arraigned in court this August. Meanwhile, Arjang is being treated for a concussion and deviated septum.

Fun fact: the mansion where it all happened is the setting of the Showtime drama “Billions.”
