Socialite arrested for assault after alleged Jew-bashing meltdown

Warning: Graphic language

Jacqueline Kent Cooke — the millionaire socialite daughter of former Washington Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke — was arrested for assault Wednesday after allegedly making an anti-Semitic slur to a stranger at a fancy Manhattan restaurant and then bashing him with her heavy glass purse on New Year’s Eve, sources told The Post.

The alleged victim, Matthew Haberkorn

Cooke, 29, allegedly whacked Matthew Haberkorn, 52, outside the Upper East Side restaurant Caravaggio and left him with a bloody gash on his head, law enforcement sources told The Post.

Haberkorn said he had just finished dining with his wife, mom and four daughters when the socialite started the encounter by hurling the slur at his mom on the way out of the eatery.

“I went to the bathroom as we were leaving,” Haberkorn told The Post. “She made a comment to my mother, ‘Hurry up, you Jew,’ as she was getting her jacket.”

When Haberkorn confronted the woman about the comment, that’s when she unleashed her bag attack.
