Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office
The circumstances of de Lesseps’ arrest late Saturday in Palm Beach were not immediately available. The
Palm Beach Post reported that a prosecutor said de Lesseps slammed a door and kicked at least one police officer, and she made threatening comments before she was arrested.
In a statement emailed by her spokesman Pete Sanders, de Lesseps offered her sincere apologies to anyone she might have offended with her behavior.
“This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding and being there brought up long-buried emotions,” she said.
She said she was committed to a “transformative and hopeful 2018.”
De Lesseps married Tom D’Agostino Jr. in Palm Beach on New Year’s Eve 2016. The couple split earlier this year. That marriage had caused her to forfeit the “countess” title she had retained from a previous coupling.
Messages left Sunday morning for a Palm Beach Police spokesman were not immediately returned.
