'Real Housewives of New York' star Luann de Lesseps is checking into rehab following her arrest after a drunken rampage.

De Lessep's ex was also apparently unaware the Real Housewives Of New York star was even in Palm Beach - the same city where they tied the knot, almost one year ago.

"After the events of last Saturday night in Palm Beach, I am truly embarrassed", her statement reads.

'I have made a decision to seek professional guidance and will be voluntarily checking into an alcohol treatment center.

De Lesseps, 52, was arrested on charges of attacking a police officer, disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest with violence and two corruption by threat charges on December 25, according to the police report obtained by the New York Daily News.

Police alleged that de Lesseps resisted arrest and later said "I'm going to f-king kill you" after being placed in a patrol auto.

"Once again, I sincerely apologize for my actions", her tweet continued.

'I have the greatest respect for police officers and the job they do.

On Thursday, the Palm Beach Beach Police released de Lesseps' police report to Bustle, which read she allegedly slipped out of handcuffs and tried to escape from the police auto after she was arrested.

Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Crystal Palace
Now sat 16th in the table, Palace are still only a single point above the drop zone and know they're still not out of the woods. Nacho Monreal is a doubt for the Gunners, with the Spanish defender picking up an ankle injury in the match against Liverpool .

She also helped launch a segment titled Wednesday's Child, which helped find Atlanta children find permanent homes. Davis was on her way to Texas for her stepfather's funeral when she suffered the stroke, according to CBS .

Dominos: More Countries Pledge Embassy Moves to Jerusalem
Trump upended decades of US policy with his December 6 announcement that he was recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital. She added: "What we are doing is returning our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, where we had it for many years".

Following the embarrassing arrest, TMZ reports that de Lesseps enjoyed a low-key Christmas with family and friends.

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

"I want to offer my most honest apologies to anyone that I might have offended with my behavior", she wrote.

She isn't the only star from Real Housewives to have a run-in with police in Florida.

Following her arrest, Luann was released and is due back in court on 1/25/2018. She married Tom D'Agostino in Palm Beach last New Year's Eve; they divorced seven months later.

When an Officer O'Leary eventually opened the bathroom door she 'shoved Officer O'Leary with an open palm to the chest, then slammed the door on Officer O'Leary's face, striking him in the forehead'. Intoxicated, Luann dismissed the security guard's request that she leave and locked herself in the bathroom.

It sounds to me like Luann is doing some significant damage control and is checking into treatment before the court orders her to. "Everyone is anxious the judge is going to make an example of her".

She was also charged with resisting arrest with violence and corruption by threat against a public servant, according to records. Four out of the five charges she is facing are felonies.
