Was there more to the drunk and disorderly arrest of the former Bachelorette star Kasey Kahl than was at first reported?
Another side of the reports has emerged which suggests Kasey was doing much more than “being too loud” with his friends, as was previously reported. New claims also suggest that, contrary to what his rather smiley mug shot suggests, he was “belligerent” while in custody.
The latest reports to emerge about the incident say that Kasey Kahl punched a woman in the face at a Fresno nightclub, giving her a bloody nose. That’s what the victim says, while Kasey himself is adamant that it was all in self-defense.
Kahl was arrested early Sunday morning for drunk and disorderly conduct at Club Habano’s nightclub.
According to the police report, which TMZ claim to have seen, Kahl was accused of attacking Richard Chaney outside the club and then hitting Chaney’s girlfriend, Renee Idsinga, in the face when she tried to break up the fight.
Cops say Chaney’s girlfriend told them she and Cheney were leaving the club when a “very intoxicated” Kahl approached them and began “talking s—“ about having had sex with one of Renee’s friends.
Kasey allegedly got violent when told to “stop being a d–k and stop talking to her.” He allegedly hit Chaney several times in the face and head. He is also said to have struck Renee in the face during the altercation, causing her nose to bleed. She also admitted she scratched Kahl’s neck in an effort to break up the fight.
Cops say Renee’s nose and Chaney’s mouth were still bleeding when they arrived on the scene. Kahl claimed self defense.
The police report from the arresting officer noted that “Kahl made it a point to tell me that he was a celebrity and he was on several reality shows including ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘Celebrity Couple’s Retreat.’”
Initially, both Kahl and the couple wanted to press charges, and Kahl was so “intoxicated and belligerent” that they felt he couldn’t take care of himself, so they booked him into Fresno County Jail for his own safety. He was eventually released, apparently without charge, after taking his very smiley mug shot.
