MTV's "Teen Mom" star, Farrah Abraham, was charged with battery stemming from a nightclub altercation in Hollywood earlier this year when she assaulted a security guard during an argument outside Grandmaster Records in Los Angeles, California.
The 31-year-old reality star was officially charged on June 2.
Abraham faces a $2,000 fine and up to one year in jail. She first appeared on "16 and Pregnant" in 2009 and has since starred in many other projects for the network.
The former adult film star was booked into county jail on Jan. 16 for slapping a security guard at the club after she was asked to leave but refused.
A representative for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that Abraham was taken into custody after someone made a citizen’s arrest while she was partying at a nightclub.
Law enforcement officials said Abraham was arrested and booked after officers responded to a battery call at the club. Security at the location had been alerted to a possible fight on the rooftop of the establishment. When guards tried to escort Abraham from the location, she slapped one of them.
"Security called LAPD and placed the suspect under private persons arrest PPA arrest for battery," the Los Angeles Police Department statement said.
Abraham told a different story on social media shortly after the incident and claimed the altercation had been planned by outside sources before praising authorities for stepping in to help her.
"I post this as no woman or man should ever be battered, abused, conspired, ganged up on, set up, recorded, and video sold. I’m putting a restraining order on @antonelloparloto livebad who made this dinner reservation and conspired an attack on myself with the staff at @grandmaster_recorders as it was a "private persons arrest" complete setup," she wrote.
The star went on to lament that she was "attacked, bruised, men on me, and battered. As a single mother to be harassed, battered, and conspired against as a paying customer." She called out the club again and demanded that it fire its management. She also thanked the police for "rescuing" her.
