Reality star Farrah Abraham arrested at Beverly Hills hotel

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Police say former reality TV star Farrah Abraham has been arrested after attacking a security guard at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Beverly Hills police said in a statement that Abraham was arrested early Wednesday on suspicion of misdemeanor battery and trespassing.

Police say the security guard was asking Abraham to leave the hotel because she refused to stop shouting at other guests. The guard said she hit him in the face with her forearm, grabbed his ear and pushed him in the face. The guard had only minor injuries.

Abraham's publicist Elizabeth Lloyd says the incident was a misunderstanding.

Police say Abraham appeared drunk when they arrested her. She was jailed on $500 bail.

The 27-year-old is known for her roles on MTV's "16 & Pregnant" and "Teen Mom."
