A woman accused of slashing Leonardo DiCaprio’s face with a glass at a party in 2005 has been sent back to Los Angeles to face a charge of assault stemming from the alleged incident.

Aretha Wilson is said to have hit the Inception star during a Hollywood Hills house party thrown by Paris Hilton’s ex, film producer Rick Saloman, reportedly leaving the actor requiring 17 stitches to close up a large cut from his ear to his face.

She was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon, but fled the country before she could face prosecution and went on the run in Canada.

Canadian authorities recently took the 40-year-old suspect into custody and she was sent back to Los Angeles on Thursday to stand trial over the allegations, according to TMZ.com.
