RHONY Cast Member Luann de Lesseps Arrested In Palm Beach
Welp… This crazy faced broad who definitely had a rough year and is going out with a bang! Luann de Lesseps was arrested early Christmas Eve morning for alleged drunk and disorderly mayhem and for attacking a Palm Beach police officer. The 52-year-old is accused of slamming a door and kicking at least one police officer, according to the Palm Beach Post:
“I’m going to kill you all,” the state’s attorney said de Lesseps told people prior to her arrest.
De Lesseps, who has no prior offenses, will be allowed to go back to New York, said Judge Ted Booras.
Booras, acknowledging de Lesseps’ fame, said she should hire a criminal defense attorney from Palm Beach instead of ignoring the charges.
“I don’t think it would be that hard to find you,” he said.
De Lesseps was advised by Booras not to incriminate herself and respond to him when he said she might have a drinking problem.
“Don’t say anything,” he told the reality star.
Booras also told de Lesseps that four of the five charges against her — battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting with violence and the two corruption by threat charges — are felonies.
De Lesseps was arrested on her own recognizance and is due back in court January 25.
Those of you who watch The Real Housewives of New York are already well acquainted with Countess Luann de Lesseps, who got divorced from the Count a few years ago and spent most of last year being publicly embarrassed by her fiance Tom D’Agostino, Jr who she married last year despite his past and possibly present dealings with other women in her circle. They split up this year (maybe the reason for her hitting the bottle so hard this weekend?)
