Twenty-four-year-old Nick Brooks was arrested last night and charged with attempted murder and strangulation in the death of Sylvie Cachay, his swimsuit-designer ex-girlfriend, who was found dead in a bathtub at the Soho House earlier this week. (A source said cops can prove he choked her, but cannot prove the choking caused her death.) Brooks is the son of Oscar-winning composer Joseph Brooks, who was indicted last year on 82 counts of sex-related charges, including rape, after luring women to his apartment with the promise of jobs in the film industry. A week before her death, Cachay had reportedly told Brooks, "If you don't prove to me that you can be a solid citizen, I will not consider marriage."
