Oh, Farrah. When you got fired from Teen Mom OG for generally being an awful person, we thought your days of entertaining/depressing us with your bonkers bad behavior had come to an end. In retrospect, we should’ve known a day like today was coming.
n case you missed it, Farrah was arrested on charges of battery and trespassing last night after allegedly assaulting a male staff member at the famed Beverly Hills Hotel.According to the police report, she was booked at 1:48 AM. As of right now, she’s still being held on $500 bail.
We still don’t know what set Farrah off (although we do know that booze was involved), but TMZ has obtained video of Farrah’s arrest, and as you may have guessed — it ain’t pretty. At one point, one of the arresting officers begins searching Farrah’s purse, and the former reality star demonstrates that even in her state of inebriation, she’s well aware of the reality of her situation:
“Do you want to do that on camera so that everyone at TMZ can see?” Farrah asks.
Further proving that her diva-like attitude remains intact, Farrah tells one of the officers, “I don’t want to be arrested.” She then repeats the phrase “I am not going to be provoked to be arrested” several times. Then things really take a turn for the worse, as Abraham screams, “I am not resisting you!” before breaking down in tears (a classic Farrah tactic) and accusing one of the officers of hurting her.
A spokesperson for Farrah issued a statement today in which she thanked fans for their “concern” and urged them to “remember there are two sides to every story.”
Meanwhile, police have issued their own statement, in which they state the painfully obvious and confirm that Farrah has hammered at the time of her arrest.
“Officers noted that Abraham exhibited signs of intoxication during the investigation,” stated Lieutenant Elisabeth Albanese with the Beverly Hills Police Department this afternoon.
It may be hard to believe, given her many years of batsh-t behavior, but this is only Farrah’s second arrest.The first took place in 2013, when she was hauled in on DUI charges. Back then, she pled guilty and was sentenced to six months probation. This time, Farrah might find herself facing a stiffer penalty. For one thing, she’s no longer a first offender. On top of that, there’s a legal precedent in this case, as it was just last year that Farrah’s fellow reality star Kim Richards was arrested for a drunken assault at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Richards very narrowly avoided jail time, but even if Farrah proves equally lucky, she’s got another problem on her hands:
Sources have indicated that Farrah’s 9-year-old daughter Sophia was with her in the hotel on the night of the incident.
Sophia is currently in the care of a nanny, but Farrah might soon be facing a custody challenge from her mother, Debra Danielsen: “She needs to be with her family, not about strangers and volatility and her mother being arrested,” Danielsen told Radar when asked about Sophia. “It’s very disgusting. She needs to go to school… She needs to not be dragged on a party all over the world.”
We’ll have further updates on this developing situation as more information becomes available.
