Luann de Lesseps Arrested For Disorderly Intoxication and Resisting Arrest on Christmas Eve
By Emily Krauser
Luann de Lesseps was arrested on Christmas Eve.
The Real Housewives of New York City star was accused of disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest and battery on a law enforcement officer, ET can confirm. She was taken into the Palm Beach County Jail in Palm Beach, Florida, at 1:25 a.m. local time and was released on her own recognizance 10 hours later.
An assistant state's attorney told the Palm Beach Postthat before her arrest, the 52-year-old reality star slammed a door, kicked at least one officer and said, "I'm going to kill you all." The newspaper also stated she was released without bond and is due back in court on Jan. 25.
As she had no prior offenses, Judge Ted Booras -- who warned her that four of her five charges were felonies -- allowed her to return to New York, the Post reports. He also warned her not to incriminate herself when she responded to him saying that she might have a drinking problem, telling her, "Don't say anything."
In the days leading up to her arrest, however, de Lesseps seemed excited to celebrate the holidays, sharing plenty of Christmas cheer on Instagram, including a festive snap with her Real Housewives ladies.
