Countess Luann de Lesseps spent part of her holiday weekend in handcuffs and not the fun kind.
The Real Housewives of New York star was arrested on Christmas Eve after she resisted arrest and allegedly attacked a cop.
Currently, Luann faces “charges of battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and two corruption by threat charges.”
So, what led to this very ‘un-Countess’ like behavior from Luann?
Well, it turns out before her arrest Luann was discovered trespassing in a hotel room and was found in bed with a man.
According to Page Six, Luann and her male companion “entered room 407 at the Colony Hotell in Palm Beach while a maid was finishing a turn-down service Saturday night.”
Things then got hairy when Luann and her male friend were found in bed by a security guard and told them they had to leave. Luann was, in fact, a guest of the hotel but was staying in room 327.
After “multiple attempts to get both subjects to leave over a five minute period,” the security guard called the cops who responded and found Luann in the hotel room with her friend Julie Olson.
The ladies “appeared to be highly intoxicated,” and while Julie followed orders to exit the hotel room, Luann locked herself in the bathroom and refused to leave.
Eventually, Luann exited the bathroom, attacked a cop, was arrested, and the rest is history.
However, following the incident and her arrest, Luann began her apology tour and attempted to defend her antics.
“This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding, and being here brought up long-buried emotions,” Luann told PEOPLE in a statement. “I want to offer my sincere apologies to anyone I might have offended with my behavior. I am committed to a transformative and hopeful 2018.”
Luann is due back in court on January 25, 2018.
I think Luann needs to get herself together. I understand getting shit-faced, but Luann took it way too far. This will be such a fun storyline on RHONY – can’t wait to see what Luann’s co-stars will have to say.
Are you surprised alcohol was involved in Luann’s arrest? Does Luann deserve a free pass after the year she has had? Do you think Luann will change her ways in 2018? What type of sentence do you think Luann will get?
