The troubled reality star, who split from her husband earlier this year, reportedly slammed a door and kicked a policeman during her arrest. She also blurted out, "I'm going to kill you all," according to the Palm Beach Post.

During her court appearance overnight, Judge Ted Booras reportedly suggested de Lesseps hire herself a lawyer rather than ignore the charges, adding: "I don't think it would be that hard to find you."

She was released without bond and is permitted to return to New York.

Requests for comment from de Lesseps' team and Bravo representatives weren't immediately returned.

De Lesseps is a former wife of Count Alexandre de Lesseps and retained the French royal title after their 2009 divorce until her remarriage in 2016. She was married to Tom D'Agostino Jr. until earlier this year.
