De Lesseps faces five charges, four of which are felonies, including battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence, corruption threat charges, and crimes against a person.
In court this morning, a states attorney told the court that she kicked at least one police officer and slammed a door. Prior to her arrest, she threatened to kill a group of officers, saying, "I will kill you all."
De Lesseps was released by the court and allowed to return to New York. De Lesseps has no prior offenses, and was released without bond — which means she had to pay no bail and is out on her own recognizance. Judge Ted Booras recommened she retain a lawyer in the area. She is expected to return to court in Florida on January 25, 2018.
Through a representitive, De Lesseps offered this statement to Refinery29: "I want to offer my sincere apologies to anyone I might have offended with my behavior.
