LuAnn DeLesseps Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Luann de Lesseps Arrested On Christmas Eve – Currently Facing Four Felonies!

RHONY star Luann de Lesseps started out 2017 with an over the top wedding and is ending it with an over the top arrest!

The Daily Mail has reported that Lu was arrested early Sunday morning after being severely intoxicated and reportedly attacking members of law enforcement.

Records show that:

“The Real Housewives of New York City” star, 52, was arrested in Palm Beach, Fla., on charges of battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and two corruption by threat charges.”

And it just gets worse from there folks!

Apparently the Countess engaged in some very ‘un-Countess’ like behavior yelling, “I’m going to kill you all” before her arrest, slamming the door and kicking at least one officer, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Lu was taken to the Palm Beach County jail and was released without bond just hours later. As many other reality stars before her, Lu now has her own mugshot where you can tell she clearly has had one too many drinks and even has a bit of a smirk on her face:

TMZ later reported that Luann has “been charged with 5 crimes, 4 of which are FELONIES — battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, and 2 counts of corruption by threat.”

It sounds like the judge even had concern for her as TMZ reports that:

“Before being released, the judge suggested Luann might have a drinking problem, and then warned her not to incriminate herself by responding.”

Based on what we’ve seen on the show I would say that is a legitimate concern. Luann has some time to reflect on herself as she is due in court 1/25/2018.

We all know that just last year on New Year’s Eve, Luann married who she thought was the man of her dreams only to divorce him months later. As her ‘would be’ first anniversary is coming up, perhaps she was drinking to drown her sorrows? It’s clear that Luann has some issues she needs to work through; however saying she had a rough year is an understatement.

Earlier this year, her daughter Victoria was also arrested for a DWI in April of 2017.

As of now, no word from Luann’s rep or anyone from her family. Stay tuned as AllAboutTRH will keep you updated as the story unfolds.
