Is Prince Harry's Vegas party pal headed to the slammer?
The New York Daily News reports that Carrie Reichert — the blonde beauty who opened up to U.K. paper The People about her wild night with the raucous royal — was arrested on a felony warrant in San Diego August 24 while trying to board a flight to Mexico, a law enforcement source said.
Reichert is in trouble for writing four bad checks, worth a staggering $21,672. (If convicted on the felony fraud charge, the beautician faces more than a year in jail.)
"Customs matched her up at the airport," the source told the Daily News. "She was fixing to go out of the country, but we had them snatch her up. She didn't get to go on her little weekend adventure."
Last weekend, Reichert's exclusive interview about her August 20 Vegas night with Harry appeared in The People. The British-born 32-year-old claimed she was handpicked, along with nine other women, to join Harry's booze-fueled bash before the Prince, 27, asked her to be alone with him.
"We kissed, he was naked at the time, and pretty open. It was a drunken fumble. It wasn't romantic, just fun," Reichert says. "He was a gentleman, but he was so wasted. The alcohol affected him. I was there for 15 to 20 minutes."
"He would just randomly walk up to you and hug you," Reichert adds. "He was just really friendly and there were just really random naked hugs. It was funny."
Following the release of her account, a Palace insider adamantly denied the claims made by Reichert in her interview, telling Us Weekly: "The story is not true. Harry's disappointed, but not surprised, that people are making up stories for money."
