Abraham's rep called the situation "blown out of proportion."

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham was arrested in the early morning hours Wednesday for alleged assault of a security guard at the Beverly Hills Hotel, according to police. 

Abraham was taken into custody around 1:30 a.m. on suspicion of misdemeanor battery and trespassing, Beverly Hills police spokeswoman Lt. Elisabeth Albanese said.

The alleged incident began when Abraham 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, Albanese said. 

Police arrived shortly thereafter. Abraham allegedly exhibited signs of intoxication, police reported. 

 He bail was set at $500.

Abraham was released from jail around 2 p.m. At the time, her rep released a statement that called the situation "blown out of proportion."

"A misunderstanding occurred and there was no battery or trespassing," the statement read. "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."

Read full statement below:

"This situation has been blown out of proportion, Farrah has not been charged and was released this afternoon. A misunderstanding occurred and there was no battery or trespassing. Farrah is the hardest working individual I know and sets very high standards of herself. She has been working on a number of deadlines for new projects and business ventures; she is immaculate in her work ethics and pushes herself harder than her team recommend sometimes. 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."
