Washington D.C. [USA], Dec 25 (ANI): Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Luann de Lesseps, who was arrested on Sunday after reportedly attacking a police officer in Palm Beach, Florida, apologised for the action and committed to a transformative new year (2018).

"This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding, and being here brought up long-buried emotions," she in a statement, as quoted by E! Online, adding, "I want to offer my sincere apologies to anyone I might have offended with my behaviour. I am committed to transformative and hopeful 2018."

The 52-year-old star was charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer/firefighter/EMT, resisting arrest with violence and threatening a public servant, as per the the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

Reportedly de Lesseps slammed a door and kicked at least one police officer and also told people, "I'm going to kill you all," before her arrest.

The reality star was released on her own recognizance and was allowed to return to her home state of New York, with a warning to not ignore the charges against her.

On a related note, nearly a year ago on New Year's Eve, de Lesseps tied the knots with her now-estranged husband Tom D'Agostino in an extravagant Palm Beach wedding. Unfortunately, she ended up filing for divorce seven months later. (ANI)
