The RHONY star was staying at the hotel but not in that room. When a hotel guard was unable to get her to leave two police officers were called to the scene.

It was then that de Lesseps, who was ‘highly intoxicated’ reportedly barricaded herself in the room. A hotel employee tried to use a key to enter the room. His attempt was unsuccessful after she struck him on the chest and slammed the door in his face.

According to the police report, she was finally handcuffed however, she managed to slip out of her restraints and screamed ‘I’m going to f***ing kill you’ at police while trying to escape from the scene.

The reality star was seen for the first time since her first court appearance while enjoying a beachside barbecue on Christmas at her brother’s home in Jupiter. It is unclear if she was drinking but she was sitting in front of an open bottle of wine. The reality star, 52, arrived at the Palm Beach Courthouse just after 9am on Sunday where she appeared before Judge Ted Booras.  She appeared have gotten no sleep as she stood in front of the judge. Her limp and greasy hair covering her face, make-up smeared and wearing the same soiled dress she had on Saturday night when she first hit the town.

Judge Booras informed de Lesseps that she needed to hire a lawyer for the ‘serious charges’ she is facing, just before releasing her from custody.

De Lesseps was told she could return to her home in New York because this was her first offense according to the judge, who also allowed her to forego posting any bail and instead released her on her own recognizance.

‘I don’t think it would be that hard to find you,’ said Judge Booras of the Housewives star, who had been filming the upcoming season of her show just days before in New York City.
