UPDATE II: And the train keeps on wrecking. Now, Kasey’s camp has released a statement about his arrest. Kasey’s lawyer calls it a fame-grab. Here’s what he told CBS 47:
We’re confident when all the facts are brought forth that Kasey will be completely vindicated in the situation. There’s no charges filed and I think this is just a case of someone looking to grab their 15 minutes of fame. Very Jersey Shore-like if you ask me.
UPDATE, 1/17: Oh, the story gets more salacious. The Bee’s Jim Guy got a hold of the police report, which tells a more complete and, for Kasey, a more sad story. Fighting with a couple, giving a girl a bloody nose and pulling out his “celebrity” card, according to police.
From The Bee:
[Kahl] was described in a police report as “very intoxicated and belligerent.” He was taken into custody because officers determined he was “unable to care for himself in public.” Kahl protested to officers that he was a “celebrity.
ORIGINAL POST, 1/16: Sigh. Fresno is the top story on TMZ at the moment, thanks to local reality TV goofball Kasey Kahl, who was arrested at Club Habanos over the weekend, for being what famed the gossip site is calling “a drunken mess.”
I suppose this shouldn’t surprise anyone — a reality TV trainwreck turned apparent real-life trainwreck. Yipee!
Here’s the dirt that TMZ has:
“Bachelorette” star Kasey Kahl was arrested Sunday morning in Fresno, CA — hometown of Kevin Federline — after cops say he was drunk and disorderly at a nightclub … TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Kahl — who recently appeared on “Bachelor Pad” — was allegedly involved in an incident at a place called Club Habanos. So far, it’s unclear exactly what Kahl is accused of doing wrong.
Kahl was booked at a nearby police station — where he took one of the prettiest mug shots we’ve ever seen and was released a few hours later.
All a stunt for Kahl’s next upcoming reality TV adventure, “Relationship Rehab?” Or just the obvious conclusion to being a reality TV “celebrity” with a broken heart? I suppose we’ll have to wait to hear more details.
This is, however, more fodder for everyone out there who makes a “Fresno is the drunkest city” crack at every available opportunity. So you can all thank Kasey for that. Just don’t buy him a drink, mmmkay?
