'Bachelorette' Star Kasey Kahl Arrested for Assault, Huffing Paint Thinner
Kasey Kahl Faces Possible Eight Years in Prison
Looks like Bachelorette star Kasey Kahl is in some serious trouble.
The reality star, who also appeared on Bachelor Pad, has been charged with "two counts of felony assault, one for felony battery, and one for public intoxication," according to E! Online.
Kahl was arrested for drunken and disorderly conduct, assault, and battery outside a Fresno, California bar in January.
The Fresno Country District Attorney's Office notes that Kahl was under the influence of liquor, drugs, and a chemical used in paint thinners.
Kahl attacked a man, Richard Chaney, and allegedly bashed Chaney's girlfriend's face.
His rep maintains Kahl is innocent and says that the couple who are accusing him of battery are "antagonizing" him because they "wanted their 15 minutes, which they received, and now those 15 minutes are over."
If Kahl is convicted on all four counts, he could be looking at an eight year prison sentence.
It's likely that Bachelorette star Vienna Girardi is thanking her lucky stars that she and Kahl broke up.
At the time of the breakup last November, she tweeted: "@KaseyRKahl always be my best friend, but yes we have split," adding, "No idea what the future holds for us but we will always remain friends."
He also confirmed the breakup, tweeting, "I will always love, be there for her, and wish her the best."
