Farrah Abraham on Monday was charged for allegedly assaulting a security guard at the Beverly Hills Hotel in June, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
The Teen Mom star faces one misdemeanor count each of battery and resisting, delaying or obstructing a peace officer, according to the D.A.’s office.
Abraham subsequently appeared in court on Monday and pleaded not guilty to all charges. She has maintained her innocence since the June 13 arrest.
The charges stem from an incident when Abraham allegedly refused to leave the hotel after getting into a verbal altercation with guests. A security guard tried to escort Abraham off the premises when she allegedly hit him in the face, then grabbed his ear and pushed him in the face as he tried to stop her from re-entering the hotel, according to authorities. She allegedly was difficult with Beverly Hills police once officers arrived on scene.
Following her release from jail, her rep released a statement calling the situation “blown out of proportion.”
“A misunderstanding occurred and there was no battery or trespassing,” the statement read in part. “Farrah is a powerhouse and was having a business meeting in the hotel where the alleged incident happened. She is a very sweet and ambitious young woman who has been portrayed in a biased light on a reality TV show for many years.”
Abraham’s next court date is set for Sept. 21.
If convicted as charged, the D.A.’s office noted Abraham faces a possible maximum sentence of 18 months in jail.
