PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A star of the reality television series "The Real Housewives of New York City" has been arrested in Florida.

Palm Beach County court records show 52-year-old Luann de Lesseps was booked into jail Sunday on charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, disorderly intoxication and corruption by threat.
