“I’m going to (expletive) kill you,” Luann de Lesseps told town officers as they tried to put her back in the patrol car.
After being handcuffed and placed in a patrol car, the reality star removed the handcuffs and tried to leave the car. As an officer tried to put her handcuffs back on, she threatened him. Press play to watch below.
