A star of the reality television series "The Real Housewives of New York City" has been arrested in Florida.
Palm Beach County court records show 52-year-old Luann de Lesseps was booked into jail Sunday on charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, disorderly intoxication and corruption by threat.
The Palm Bach Post reported that De Lesseps slammed a door and kicked at least one police officer, said an assistant state’s attorney.
“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 and was released with out bond.
Judge Ted 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 is a former wife of Count Alexandre de Lesseps and retained the French royal title after their 2009 divorce until her remarriage in 2016. She was married to Tom D’Agostino Jr. until earlier this year.
