Bachelorette’s Kasey Kahl arrested after fight outside club, punching a woman in the face

Bachelor Pad and The Bachelorette cast member Kasey Kahl, Vienna Girardi’s ex-boyfriend and a cast member with her on VH1’s upcoming Relationship Rehab, was arrested last weekend after a fight outside a club during which he allegedly punched a woman in the face.

TMZ reports that Kasey “was accused of attacking a man named Richard Chaney outside the club … and then smashing Chaney’s girlfriend in the face when she tried to break up the fight,” and Chaney told cops … he told Kahl to “go away” … but “Kahl became physically violent and struck Chaney several times in the face and head … causing his mouth to bleed.” The woman, Rene Idsinga, told police “she tried scratching Kahl’s neck to get him to stop beating Chaney” and “claims Kahl struck her in the face during the melee, causing her nose to bleed.”

Kasey’s rep told People that Kasey was “shaken by the circumstances” and “a bit confused as to what happened,” saying that “Kasey and his friends were hanging out outside of the club where police officers allegedly thought they were being too loud. Kasey, along with a couple friends, were taken to the police station, but were released a couple hours later. No charges were or have been filed against him.”
