Shocking video from Real Housewives of New York City star Luann de Lesseps’ Christmas Eve arrest forÂ disorderly intoxication has been revealed and it’s not a good look.
The five minute video, captured in December 2017, was released on the internet. It shows Luann telling cops to let her out, claiming sheâ€™s done nothing wrong after being cuffed for trespassing in a hotel room with a man.
de Lesseps was charged with disorderly intoxication, battery of an officer, resisting arrest and making threats against a public servant.
In the video, de Lesseps is repeatedly heard threatening cops and shouting, â€œDonâ€™t touch me! I will kill you.”
The arresting officer threatened to hog-tie her if she doesnâ€™t cooperate.
In the days following her arrest, de Lesseps checked into rehab for treatment.
â€œAt this point in my life, I donâ€™t want to drink, nor do I have interest in drinking,â€ she said of getting treatment. â€œRehab saved my life. It was the best thing that I could do for myself and Iâ€™m so glad I did that.â€
She eventually apologized for her behavior and pleaded not guilty. However, she rejected a plea deal in lieu of a speedy trial.
