Farrah Abraham arrested after allegedly hitting a security guard
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the arrest of the reality TV star following a citizen’s arrest at a nightclub in Hollywood.
Abraham was arrested and booked on battery charges. The officers responded to a call in which security at the club reported a possible fight at the rooftop of the building. When the guards asked Farrah to leave and tried to escort her out of the establishment, she slapped one of them.
“Security called LAPD and placed the suspect under [private persons arrest] PPA arrest for battery,” a statement from the Los Angeles Police Department reads.
The altercation was started by another guest of the club, picking a fight with Abraham and her friend. Security was called to calm down the situation and then Farrah, allegedly, got hostile, so she was asked to leave. During the efforts of the guards to see her out of the club, and the police to be called, the star slapped the guard and was stopped from leaving the scene.
Farrah posted a video of the citizens’ arrest to her Instagram account. She is on the ground, pinned down by a guard, struggling, with one of her heels missing.
In her post, she alleged that the altercation was pre-planned for profit.
“I post this as no woman or man should ever be battered, abused, conspired, ganged up on, set up, recorded, and video sold. I’m putting a restraining order on @antonelloparloto livebad who made this dinner reservation and conspired an attack on myself with the staff at @grandmaster_recorders as it was a “private persons arrest” complete setup,” she wrote.
The former 16 and Pregnant‘s, now 30 years old, the star wrote that she was “attacked, bruised, men on me, and battered. As a single mother to be harassed, battered, and conspired against as a paying customer.” She demanded it fires its management and also thanked the police for “rescuing” her.
“Woman it is a scary unsafe world we live in, act upon your rights and always care for others even when everyone hurts you and attacks you. You are resilient and you are stronger then all of the weak people out there who hurt and traumatize us.”, she wrote in her conclusion.
Currently, there is still no information on whether she will be formally charged but she was released from custody soon after the incident, the outlet reports.
Being Farrah, she has already had similar problems with the law. She pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour in 2018 after a brawl she had with a Beverly Hills hotel security guard. After her plead she was sentenced to two years of probation and five days of community labor and “ordered to complete 12 hours of anger management and to stay away from the Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel”.
