“The Real Housewives of New York City” star Luann de Lesseps apologized following her arrest on Sunday in Florida, saying her visit to exclusive Palm Beach brought up “long-buried emotions.”

The 52-year-old Luann de Lesseps was booked Sunday on charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, disorderly intoxication and corruption by threat, according to Palm Beach County court records.

Court records indicate De Lesseps, who lives in Sag Harbor, New York, was released on her own recognizance. She is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 25.

The circumstances of de Lesseps’ arrest late Saturday in Palm Beach were not immediately released.

The Palm Beach Post reported that a prosecutor said de Lesseps slammed a door and kicked at least one police officer, and she made threatening comments before she was arrested.

In a statement emailed by her spokesman Pete Sanders, de Lesseps offered her sincere apologies to anyone she might have offended with her behavior.

“This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding and being there brought up long-buried emotions,” she said.

She said she was committed to a “transformative and hopeful 2018.”

De Lesseps married Tom D’Agostino Jr. in Palm Beach on New Year’s Eve. The couple split earlier this year.

Messages left Sunday morning for a Palm Beach Police spokesman were not immediately returned.
