Former “Teen Mom OG” star Farrah Abraham was arrested for battery and trespassing on Tuesday, according to reports.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, she was arrested in Beverly Hills after allegedly arguing and hitting a male hotel employee.
She was taken into police custody at 1:30 a.m. on suspicion of misdemeanor battery and trespassing, Beverly Hills police spokeswoman Lt. Elisabeth Albanese told The Reporter. She apparently refused to leave the Beverly Hills Hotel and got into a verbal fight with guests, prompting a security guard to try and escort her from the premises.
Officials said that she then allegedly hit the man in the face and grabbed his ear. Police said that she showed signs of intoxication when she was arrested.
Abraham, 27, was released from jail at 2 p.m. local time.
A representative for the reality TV star said the incident was “blown out of proportion.”
“A misunderstanding occurred and there was no battery or trespassing,” a statement from the rep said. “Farrah is a powerhouse and was having a business meeting in the hotel where the alleged incident happened. She is a very sweet and ambitious young woman who has been portrayed in a biased light on a reality TV show for many years.”
TMZ posted a video that purportedly shows her arguing with police before insulting several officers. “You want to act like I’m not a real adult,” she said in the clip. “Where am I battering anyone?” she asks the officer in response to a statement.
“I did not attack, or batter, or hurt, or injure,” she said. She also apparently noticed that a TMZ camera operator was nearby. “And everybody else can see that you’re going through” my bag, she said.
The entire statement can be read here:
“This situation has been blown out of proportion, Farrah has not been charged and was released this afternoon. A misunderstanding occurred and there was no battery or trespassing. Farrah is the hardest working individual I know and sets very high standards of herself. She has been working on a number of deadlines for new projects and business ventures; she is immaculate in her work ethics and pushes herself harder than her team recommend sometimes. Farrah is a powerhouse and was having a business meeting in the hotel where the alleged incident happened. She is a very sweet and ambitious young woman who has been portrayed in a biased light on a reality TV show for many years.”
