Farrah Abraham will have to face a judge for her June arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel. If Farrah is convicted, she could face 18 months in jail. Her arraignment is scheduled for August 13. The incident for which Farrah is being charged with dates back to last month after she got in an alleged altercation with a Beverly Hills hotel employee. A video surfaced shows Farrah abusing the employee.
A rep for the LA District Attorney told People that 'Teen Mom' alum that Farrah has been charged with one misdemeanor count each of battery and resisting, delaying or obstructing a peace officer. “On June 13, 2018, at approximately 1.19 am, Beverly Hills Police officers responded to the Beverly Hills Hotel for a report of a disturbance inside the hotel restaurant," a spokesperson for the Beverly Hills Police Department told the magazine at that time.
"Officers arrived shortly thereafter and made contact with the person complained of, Farrah Abraham," the spokesperson continued. "A male adult hotel security officer reported that he asked Abraham to leave the hotel after she refused to disengage from a verbal altercation with hotel guests." Farrah reacted to the scene by allegedly hitting the employe.
“The security officer reported that Abraham struck him in the face with her forearm, grabbed his ear and pushed him in the face as he attempted to prevent her from re-entering the hotel. Officers noted that Abraham exhibited signs of intoxication during the investigation," noted the spokesperson.
The spokesperson added that the victim “sustained a minor injury and was not transported to a hospital.” She was arrested for misdemeanor battery and trespassing and was held on $500 bail. In a video that was obtained by TMZ, Farrah was seen abusing and sparked outrage with her behavior. “If you want to f***ing bulls*** me and if you want to act like I’m not a real adult, go f*** yourself and go f*** your self and go f*** yourself,” she said. “It’s pathetic. … Where am I battering anyone? … I did not attack or batter or hurt or injured anyone," Farrah could be heard saying in the video.
However, when Farrah was confronted by the police she denied the accusations. Farrah said in a statement to E! that the situation had been exaggerated. "This was all blown out of proportion. I was a guest at the hotel and I did not touch anyone. I was targeted and that's why these men sold stories," she said.
At the same time, she also took to Instagram and explained to her fans about what really happened. "Hey guys, I just wanted to say thank you for all the well wishes and concern," she said. "It's sort of sad sometimes when you're out and you just can't have fun and people want to attack you and get you all in that trouble. I'm blessed by God and I don't ever want to be attacked again at a hotel."
