Luann de Lesseps appeared in court wearing handcuffs after her arrest for battery of a police officer and resisting arrest in Palm Beach, Florida, on Sunday, December 24. The Real Housewives of New York star, 52, appeared before a judge after her arrest. As previously reported, de Lesseps was charged with battery of a law enforcement officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and corruption by threat. Three of the four charges are felonies. The judge told de Lesseps, “I don’t know if you have a drinking problem, but stop drinking. That seems to be the problem here.” He then warned her to stop speaking in case she incriminated herself. She was released without bond and is scheduled to appear in court on January 25.
