BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – Police say former reality TV star Farrah Abraham was arrested early Wednesday after attacking a security guard at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Beverly Hills Police said the security guard asked Abraham to leave the hotel around 1 a.m. because she refused to stop shouting at other guests inside the hotel’s restaurant. The guard said she hit him in the face with her forearm, grabbed his ear and pushed him in the face. The guard had only minor injuries.

Police said in a statement that Abraham was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor battery and trespassing.

Abraham’s publicist Elizabeth Lloyd said the incident was a misunderstanding and that there was no battery or trespassing.

“This situation has been blown out of proportion,” Lloyd said.

Police said Abraham appeared drunk when they arrested her. She was released after posting $500 bail.

The 27-year-old is known for her roles on MTV’s “16 & Pregnant” and “Teen Mom.” She’s also the author of “My Teenage Dream Ended” which made the New York Times Best Seller List in 2012.

Actor James Woods bashes Twitter after getting locked out

MINNEAPOLIS – Actor James Woods has been locked out of his Twitter account over a tweet he sent out months ago that was found to be in violation of Twitter’s rules. The tweet was posted July 20 and includes a hoax meme that said it came from Democrats and encouraged men not to vote in the midterm elections. Woods got an email from Twitter on Thursday saying the tweet “has the potential to be misleading in a way that could impact an election.” The email says Woods can use his account again if he deletes the tweet.
