Report: Ex Bachelorette star Kasey Kahl arrested in nightclub brawl

FRESNO, Calif.

According to police, a couple told investigators Kahl was drunk and began talking to a woman who was with her boyfriend.

According to the report, when the boyfriend asked him to stop, the couple claims Kahl began hitting him. The woman told officers she tried to stop the fight.

Kahl told officers he was "jumped" by the couple, and was acting in self-defense. He also told officers he was a celebrity and had "a lot" to drink that evening.

Kahl was arrested and taken to jail because the officer felt he was unable to care for himself in public.

Both the couple and Kahl told officers they wanted to press charges. No charges have been filed at this time.

Statement from the Publicist of Kasey Kahl

At this time we have no comment regarding the specific facts of the alleged incident, but we are confident that Kasey Kahl will be fully exonerated upon completion of a full investigation. We merely ask for patience until such a time that those facts can be brought forth. As Kasey is in the public eye, it is not unlikely that we would not be surprised if these persons bent on attaining their 15 minutes of fame, while intoxicated and perhaps fueled by jealousy, will antagonize and attack stars such as Kasey in a 'Jersey Shore' type brawl given the opportunity. These persons wanted their 15 minutes, which they received, and now those 15 minutes are over. The recent reports emphasizing any brutality on his behalf and downplaying his act of self-defense are entirely speculative and false. Kasey's lawyers will vehemently confront and respond to any and all defamatory, slanderous, and or libelous statements or claims and will defend him to the fullest extent of the law.
