Luann has issued the following statement. AKA sold her story to People. ““This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding, and being here brought up long-buried emotions,” de Lesseps 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 transformative and hopeful 2018.”
She was released on her own recognizance at 11:25 am after spending nine hours and ten minutes in the pokey. Her next court date is January 15th.
Luann de Lesseps, 52, was arrested on charges of battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and crimes against a person at 1:25 am on Christmas Eve morning in Palm Beach, Florida.
In some sort of Christmas miracle, Luann had a hearing at 9 a.m. this morning. Generally, if you get arrested on the weekend, you are a guest of the county until the next business day, which would have been Tuesday.
According to testimony by the assistant state’s attorney, the Countess slammed a door and kicked at least one police officer. She also screamed at presumably everyone within ear shot, “I’m going to kill you all!”
Apparently the judge told her not to incriminate herself by answering his question about whether or not she has a drinking problem. He released her without bond and allowed her to go home to New York. He informed her that she needed to hire a Palm Beach criminal defense lawyer to resolve the matter and that if she did not do so that he suspects she will not be hard to find. Luann has no previous arrest record.
Well, at least she is friends with Tinsley now who can show her the ropes.
Am I the only one shocked by this news?
