According to E! News, police records show Abraham “was placed on a citizen’s arrest just after midnight, booked on a charge of misdemeanor assault by Los Angeles Police officers and released from their custody less than two hours later.”
Both Abraham and an eyewitness told TMZ another person in the club had assaulted Abraham, who said she was having dinner with two friends at Grandmaster Recorders. According to TMZ, Abraham “got belligerent and was asked to leave the club but refused.”
Abraham also claimed club employees “attacked her and … filmed the whole thing to leak to the media,” the outlet reported.
She’s set to appear in court in May on the misdemeanor charge, E! News reported.
In a statement to the media, Abraham shared, “I’m tired of being maliciously battered, attacked, conspired against while having dinner at Grand Master Records. This was a private person’s arrest. My lawyer is handling from here. It is terrifying and traumatizing that people attack me and I can not even enjoy dinner as I’m the only person out of three attacked and harassed. I look forward to court as always.”
In a January 16 Instagram post after her arrest, Abraham wrote that she was “putting a restraining order” on the person who made the dinner reservation “and conspired an attack” with club staff. “I thank the HOLLYWOOD police for rescuing myself from being held against my will and being attacked, I NEEDED HELP- I couldn’t even use my phone.”
Abraham Was Arrested in 2018
This isn’t the first time Abraham has been arrested. In June 2018, she was arrested at The Beverly Hills Hotel.
According to TMZ, Abraham hit a hotel security guard who had asked her to leave after she’d “gotten into an altercation with some guests.” The outlet shared a video of Abraham yelling, “Go f*** yourself” at police outside The Beverly Hills Hotel before being arrested.
Abraham was booked that night on charges of battery and trespassing and was held on a $500 bail, TMZ reported.
In November 2018, TMZ reported that Abraham entered a guilty plea on a charge of resisting arrest in the incident, and the battery charge was dropped. She received two years probation and five days of community labor, according to the outlet, plus 12 hours of anger management class and was banned from the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
‘Teen Mom: Family Reunion’
Abraham was involved in another physical altercation on the set of “Teen Mom: Family Reunion,” she told TMZ in December 2021.
“I think I could walk through the door and like, drama is going to happen, sadly. … I just warn others to keep their hands to themselves. Do not sneak attack a woman, and do not gang up on a woman, because I don’t handle that too well. So that’s kind of what happened to me,” she told the cameras while walking in Hollywood with her daughter, Sophia Abraham.
When the reporter asked if any “physical drama” took place, Abraham said, “Yeah, and I think people should not physically attack you.”
“Especially after COVID and every other thing going on in our real world of news, don’t touch people,” she added. “I still think a lot of the people who are on ‘Teen Mom’ live in the past. I hope I’m bringing ‘Teen Mom’ to, like, the 2022s of our world. And I don’t live in the past, I live in the future.”
The “Teen Mom” reunion premiered on January 11, 2022. In the words of Page Six, Abraham received a “relatively warm welcome” from her former co-stars, and in a press interview, Maci Bookout and Amber Portwood said they “still care” for Abraham.
“I had not seen her or spoken to her, honestly, in years,” Bookout said, according to Page Six. “But we all were on the same page. Everyone should be invited. If you come, it’s up to you, whatever.”
