Former “Teen Mom” star Farrah Abraham was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel on June 12, 2018.
Abraham was accused of physically striking a male employee of the famous hotel.
Abraham was allegedly intoxicated and got into an argument with a staffer. Then the encounter got physical.
An eyewitness called police, who arrested Abraham.
Abraham was booked for battery and trespassing. She was held on $500 bond.
A spokesperson for the hotel told People, “We can confirm there was an incident involving a patron in the Polo Lounge this morning.”
According to Beverly Hills Police Lieutenant Elisabeth Albanese, “A male adult hotel security officer reported that he asked Abraham to leave the hotel after she refused to disengage from a verbal altercation with hotel guests. The security officer reported that Abraham struck him in the face with her forearm, grabbed his ear and pushed him in the face as he attempted to prevent her from re-entering the hotel.”
Police say she showed signs of being drunk.
Abraham said she is “not guilty of anything, of trespassing or misdemeanor battery.” She claims she was targeted after she appeared on MTV’s Teen Mom OG and made out to be a “villain.”
Abraham, 27, was at the hotel with her 9-year-old daughter Sophia. Earlier in the day she posted selfies of herself in a bikini sitting at the poolside.
Abraham’s mother, Debra Danielsen, complained about her granddaughter being exposed to the arrest: “She needs to be with her family, not about strangers and volatility and her mother being arrested. It’s very disgusting. She needs to go to school … She needs to not be dragged on a party all over the world.”
