Canadian NFL heiress Jacqueline Kent Cooke is headed for trial for an alleged booze-fuelled New Year’s Eve assault.
The big bucks blond is accused of slugging a California lawyer with her glass clutch purse and shouting anti-Semitic slurs at an elderly woman.
Cops initially investigated the incident as a hate crime because Cooke reportedly told the woman in a restaurant coat check line: “Hurry up, Jew”.
According to the New York Daily News, Cooke appeared briefly in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday for setting a trial date in her misdemeanor assault case.

The man she allegedly attacked, Matthew Haberkorn, 52, was seen in a cell phone video bleeding from his face. He was given a desk appearance ticket to face a count-complaint and charges related to his alleged role.
The district attorney dismissed the charges against Haberkorn.
Cooke’s father was famed Canadian businessman Jack Kent Cooke who owned newspapers, magazines and the old Toronto Maple Leafs of the International League.

Cooke has said she was roughed up and suffered a broken finger in the ensuing melee.
Prosecutors reportedly are looking for a three-month jolt in jail for the 30-year-old heiress. She has declined a plea deal.
She had previously been busted for DWI in Boston and called the arresting cops “gay”.

Cooke denied calling the elderly woman a “Jew”.
She told the New York Post last spring that she said: “Excuse me, I have to get through.”
“She clearly didn’t hear what I said, and immediately screamed at the top of her lungs, ‘She called me a Jew!’”
