‘Real Housewives’ Star Luann de Lesseps Arrested for Battery, Intoxication
“Real Housewives of New York City” star Luann de Lesseps was arrested for allegedly attacking a cop and being drunk and disorderly, according to reports.
De Lesseps, 52, was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida, on Sunday morning, TMZ reported.
De Lesseps, who became a countess after marrying Count Alexandre de Lesseps before divorcing him in 2009, was charged with four felonies. They include battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, and 2 counts of corruption by threat, TMZ noted.
“I’m going to kill you all,” she allegedly told police and other people at the scene.
She was released from jail, and she is slated to appear in court on Jan. 25, 2018.
An assistant state’s attorney told the Palm Beach Post that de Lesseps allegedly slammed a door and also kicked a police officer.
Judge Ted Booras allowed de Lesseps to go back to New York City. “I don’t think it would be that hard to find you,” he said.
She was also advised by Booras not to incriminate herself further after he told her that she may have a drinking problem.
“Don’t say anything,” he told her, according to the Post.
She rose to fame in 2008 on the Bravo show, which recently concluded its ninth season. She also flirted with a singing career and released the single “Money Can’t Buy You Class.”
