According to TMZ, the 26-year-old reality star and rapper, whose real name Chelsa Chanel Dudley, was arrested in West Hollywood, California early on Wednesday on suspicion of misdemeanor battery after allegedly getting into a fight with a woman inside a nightclub, a police spokesperson told E! News. Her arrest was captured on video.
Someone on the scene made a citizen’s arrest and restrained the MTV show host until Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies arrived and detained her.
Photos from Dudley’s arrest show the blonde singer and TV personality, dressed in a loose light pink Mickey and Minnie T-shirt paired with skinny jeans, sobbing as she is being handcuffed.
One of the images shows Dudley sitting on the ground with her hands shackled behind her back and looking pleadingly at a pair of uniformed deputies flanking her.
In another photograph, the MTV presenter is seen shouting something before she is bundled into the back of a squad car.
A video of the arrest, obtained by TMZ, shows Dudley begging the officers to let her go, at one point even declaring, ‘I’ve been on TV for 17 seasons.’ But her showbiz credentials failed to impress.
She then changes tack and apparently tells a cop ‘she’ll do anything.’ In the commotion, it is difficult to make out what exactly Dudley offers the officer, but he responds by saying: ‘you’re gonna go for bribery now too?’
She tells another officer that she ‘totally’ wants to go home and insists that she has done nothing wrong.
Chanel was booked for battery and was seen being taken away by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies in a cop car.
Back in April she made headlines for causing a scene when she wasn’t allowed in the “artist’s entrance” at Coachella.
