Hunter’s Art Dealer was sued for fraud and charged with assault with a deadly weapon and ‘terrorist threats’

Georges Bergès, Hunter Biden’s art dealer has been sued or fraud and breach of contract stemming from a 2016 alleged incident involving an investor in his gallery.

CBS News reported Wednesday “The lawsuit alleged that [Ingrid] Arneberg, an artist herself, had invested $500,000 for the purpose of gallery expansion and that Berges deposited it in his personal bank account to cover expenses. Berges countersued for $4.5 million, claiming, among other things, defamation and breach of fiduciary duty. The two settled in 2018 and terms were not disclosed.”

The report adds that Bergès filed for personal bankruptcy in 1998, and “his creditors included credit card companies, a bank, a jeweler and furniture retailer Pier One Imports, according to federal court records. Bankruptcy proceedings ended three months later.”

In addition, Bergès was arrested in California prior to filing for bankruptcy and was “charged with assault with a deadly weapon and ‘terrorist threats.’”

His spokeswoman Robin Davis told CBS News Bergès simply “got into an altercation with a roommate.”

“Court records indicate Berges was sentenced to three years’ probation, but Davis said the felony charges were knocked down to misdemeanors and eventually dismissed,” the report continues “Santa Cruz County officials declined to clarify the outcome of the case. Berges never served probation, Davis said, downplaying the incident.”
