Well, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson has certainly had a dramatic weekend…
The socialite was arrested by no less than EIGHT armed police officers after she threw a hissy fit at Heathrow airport when officials refused to let her into the first-class lounge.
We have no idea if the ‘DON’T YOU KNOW WHO I AM?’ line was used, but we’re just going to imagine that it was.
According to reports, the 42-year-old actually tore out her hair extensions (?!) in a rage as she swore at coppers before being lead away in handcuffs, erm… Awks?
An ever-reliable witness told The Sun: “She had completely lost all control and she was screaming at officers. They had no choice but to arrest for her own and everyone else’s safety.”
Another added: “She went ballistic, she screamed ‘I can’t f****** believe you are treating me like this’.”
The arrest was captured on video, and in the footage Tara can be seen arguing with a male and female police officer before she goes so cray-cray that she rips out a chunk of her hair extensions and throws it at them.
Soon after, five more officers arrive and restrain Prince Charles’ Goddaughter as she carries on crying and screaming.
Ooft – dramatic much?!
Tara had been due to fly out to an exclusive ski resort in Switzerland to celebrate her birthday when the incident occurred on Saturday afternoon, with her fury thought to be sparked when she couldn’t get into the first class lounge despite having a business class ticket.
Thankfully, Tara will not be spending Christmas behind bars, as she was released from the cells with just a caution.
Speaking about the incident, the socialite, who has a history of alcohol and drug abuse, insisted that she was entirely sober, saying: “I was not drunk, there was no disorderly; I was cautioned and I saw a doctor, they were nice to me.”
Well, we’re glad to hear that she’s still on the wagon and luckily for the former party girl she was able to jet off to her skiing holiday last night.
All’s well that ends well, right?
