De Lesseps was arrested Sunday in Palm Beach after kicking a police officer and saying, “I’m going to kill you all,” a prosecutor said.
Judge Ted Booras listed the charges to the handcuffed de Lesseps, and added that three of the four charges against her are felonies.
“I don’t know if you have a drinking problem, but stop drinking,” he told her. “That seems to be the problem here.”
Booras released de Lesseps on her own recognizance. The reality television star is set to appear in court on Jan. 25. She was allowed to return to New York until then.
De Lesseps married businessman Tom D’Agostino Jr. on New Year’s Eve last year. Their marriage ended after seven months amid several reports of D’Agostino’s alleged infidelity, which were the main focus of the TV show last season.
De Lesseps became a countess after her prior marriage to Count Alexandre de Lesseps. They divorced in 2009.
