The case against soap opera actress Crystal Hunt took a dramatic turn today after she pleaded not guilty to a single charge of assault with a deadly weapon.

Hunt, who is best known for her performances in soapy classics such as Guiding Light and One Life to Live, is accused of chucking a whole pint glass at another woman while the two were fighting on Dec. 13, according to a release from the D.A. The bar where the brawl went down was identified by TMZ as Pearl's Liquor Bar in West Hollywood.

The victim suffered multiple facial injuries as a result of the incident, according to prosecutors. Hunt was arrested after the incident.

Meanwhile, Hunt is claiming that she was acting in self-defense, and that the other woman was harassing her despite multiple attempts by Hunt to have her thrown out by security, TMZ says.
