Luann de Lesseps issued a Twitter apology to anyone she may have offended or hurt by her actions.

The Real Housewives of NY star was arrested on Christmas Eve after she resisted arrest and allegedly attacked a cop.

De Lesseps was ultimately charged, including disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence, and crimes against a person, four of which are felonies.

Luann reportedly had some drinks with a man at the Colony hotel bar on Saturday night before the two left together.

A drunken Luann and the guy apparently did not respond to "multiple attempts to get both subjects to leave over a five minute period".

The outlet also noted that De Lesseps and her family were celebrating the holidays in Jupiter, which is just a short drive north from where the longtime reality star was arrested.

Both women "appeared to be highly intoxicated", and while Olson followed orders to leave, de Lesseps locked herself in the bathroom and refused to come out, the report says. She allegedly "slammed the [bathroom] door on Officer O'Leary's face, striking him in the forehead", according to the police report.

Her ex-husband is now in Palm Beach for Christmas but has made no comment about her arrest.

They split in 2009, and when she Wednesday D'Agostino, she forfeited her noble title, though she still uses it on the Bravo series. The reality star landed behind bars in Palm Beach, Florida, on Sunday morning, according to CNN. "I am committed to a transformative and hopeful 2018".

De Lesseps was released without bond.

Gossip website TMZ reported that Lesseps told police, "I'm going to kill you all".

De Lesseps has appeared on the "Real Housewives of New York City", which chronicles of the travails of the city's wealthy socialites, since its premiere in 2008.

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

Following the incident, de Lesseps released a statement apologizing for her behavior and indicating that her recent divorce from Tom D'Agostino after a short-lived marriage caused her to lash out. She's scheduled to appear in court on January 25, 2018.
