The trouble allegedly began in Room 407, according to the New York Post. It fills in some of the details of Real Housewives of New York City star Luann de Lesseps' Saturday night arrest in Palm Beach, Florida, via a police report. Per the Post, the 52-year-old was staying in Room 327 of the Colony hotel, but entered 407 with a "male pal" while a maid was in the room. A security guard dispatched to the scene allegedly found the two in bed and was unable to get them to leave; when two police officers arrived at 9:20pm, de Lesseps was reportedly in the room with a girlfriend. The woman left, but de Lesseps locked herself in the bathroom and refused to leave until a cop started opening the door, per the report.

What happened next contributed to her charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, disorderly intoxication, and corruption by threat: She allegedly pushed an officer in the chest, slammed the door on his forehead, wriggled out of handcuffs and tried to take off, and screamed "I'm going to f---ing kill you," a line she allegedly repeated as she was brought to the Palm Beach police station. De Lesseps apologized in a statement Sunday, saying "this was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding and being there brought up long-buried emotions." De Lesseps married Tom D'Agostino Jr. in Palm Beach on New Year's Eve; they split 7 months later. She was released on her own recognizance and has a Jan. 25 court date, reports the AP. TMZ snapped a photo of her with family on Monday.
