Luann de Lesseps of RHONY was arrested in Palm Beach early this morning for a drunken skirmish (a “rampage”! (TMZ)) with police officers. She has been released and will appear before a judge on January 25th and before a reality TV tribunal, date TBD.
According to Palm Beach Post, de Lesseps allegedly told people “I’m going to kill you all” and kicked a police officer. She has been charged with four felonies–battery of an officer, resisting an officer with violence, and two counts of threatening a public servant–as well as disorderly intoxication in a public place.
Lesseps made a swift apology to People, explaining that returning to Palm Beach brought up painful memories of her very brief 2017 marriage to Tom D’Agostino. He’s been repeatedly found guilty of cheating in the court of public opinion, yet he doesn’t have to answer to a judge or People or Andy Cohen. Her statement:
“This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding, and being here brought up long-buried emotions. I want to offer my sincere apologies to anyone I might have offended with my behavior. I am committed to transformative and hopeful 2018.”
And that’s the latest on Luann de Lesseps.
