Farrah Abraham Arrested for Battery and Trespassing After Fight With Hotel Employee

Farrah Abraham was arrested for misdemeanor battery and trespassing in the early hours of Wednesday, June 13, the Beverly Hills Police Department confirms to Us Weekly.

A male security officer who works at The Beverly Hills Hotel told police that the Teen Mom OG alum, 27, was involved in a verbal altercation with guests. He claimed that when he tried to intervene, Abraham struck him in the face with her forearm, grabbed his ear and pushed him. He had minor injuries and was not transported to a hospital. Police tell Us that Abraham exhibited signs of intoxication during the investigation. She was booked at the Beverly Hills Jail and is being held on $500 bail.

The hotel’s communications director tells Us in a statement, “We can confirm there was an incident involving a patron in the Polo Lounge this morning. As this is an ongoing investigation with the Beverly Hills Police Department, we are unable to provide any further comment at this time.”

A rep for Abraham tells Us, “At this time, we thank everyone for Farrah’s concern and will assure that when she is released Farrah will release a statement on her behalf. Farrah will return and continue to focus on her businesses and her daughter, which is her No. 1 priority. Please remember there are two sides to every story!”

Abraham was previously arrested in March 2013 for driving under the influence. She was taken into custody at the time in Omaha, Nebraska, after blowing a .147, which is nearly twice the state’s legal limit. Not long after, she tweeted, “It’s amazing what people believe and makeup [sic] (love my life). Thank God I’m successful and I don’t care about drama! Have a great day.”

The 16 and Pregnant alum pleaded guilty in her DUI case in June 2013 after striking a plea deal to avoid jail time. She agreed to six months of probation, a $500 fine and six months of court-mandated sobriety.

“[It was] really nuts,” she told Us at the time of her arrest. “But you know what? Going through hell and back, I feel like I have learned a lot.”

Abraham, who is the mother of 9-year-old daughter Sophia, quit Teen Mom OG in March after she claimed in a $5 million lawsuit against Viacom that she was “sex-shamed” by producers for working in the adult entertainment industry. The company told Us in a statement that the claims were “without merit.” The suit was settled later that month, but the terms were kept confidential.
