New video shows the moment a star of The Real Housewives of New York City is handcuffed and thrown into the back of a police cruiser.

Authorities arrested Luann De Lesseps, of Sag Harbor, New York, on Christmas Eve last year on charges of disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest and battery on a law enforcement officer. Police said she slammed the door on a Palm Beach police officer, injuring his head.

It all began when the 52-year-old went into the wrong room at the Colony Hotel. According to police, she locked herself into a bathroom and refused to leave.

Police said she threatened to kill a second police officer while being placed into a patrol car.

According to court records, De Lesseps is due back in court in May.
