LuAnn de Lesseps, star of Bravo's Real Housewives of New York City, was arrested — and subsequently released without bond — from Palm Beach County Jail on Dec. 24 for charges including disorderly intoxication and battery on an officer.

According to the Palm Beach Post, de Lesseps, 52, was taken into police custody around 1:25 a.m. Sunday morning. The paper quotes an unidentified assistant state's attorney saying the star kicked an officer and said “I’m going to kill you all” before being arrested.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office's for a copy of de Lesseps' police report. Of the charges de Lesseps currently faces, four — battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting with violence, and two corruption by threat allegations — are felonies, according to the Post.

On Sunday afternoon, de Lesseps apologized on Twitter.

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

She added that she was "committed to a transformative and hopeful 2018."

I want to offer my most sincere apologies to anyone that I might have offended with my behavior. This was my first…

In a statement to BuzzFeed News, de Lesseps' agent, Michael Heller, said she will be exonerated when she has her day in court.

"She has always been a pleasure to work with and has always used her fame to help bring attention to different charity driven causes," he said. "She just finished a week long trip to the Florida Keys to help Red Cross with Hurricane Irma. She didn't want to just donate to Red Cross, she wanted to take action on her own and physically take her time to give back."

Judge Ted Booras allowed de Lesseps to return to New York City and reportedly advised her to hire a criminal defense attorney.
