After the events of last Saturday night in Palm Beach, I am truly embarrassed. I have decided to seek professional guidance and will be voluntarily checking into an alcohol treatment center. I intend to turn this unfortunate incident into a positive life changing event. Once again, I sincerely apologize for my actions. I have the greatest respect for police officers and the job they do. My actions alleged in the police report do not reflect my core values and my law abiding character. I am so grateful for the love and support that I am receiving from my family, friends and loyal supporters.
De Lesseps was arrested in the early hours of Christmas Eve after allegedly drunkenly wandering into the wrong hotel with friend, Julie Olson. After security failed the get the star to leave the hotel room, police were called and she reportedly slammed a door, locked herself in a bathroom and hitting and kicking an officer while issuing the threat “I’m going to kill you all” to officers. “The Countess” was arrested on charges of battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and crimes against a person.
