MTV’s ‘Teen Mom’ star Farrah Abraham has been charged with aggravated assault following a brawl at a Hollywood nightclub earlier this year when she allegedly assaulted a security guard during an altercation outside Grandmaster Records in Los Angeles, California.

The 31-year-old reality TV personality was formally charged on June 2 and will be in court for an arraignment hearing on Thursday, June 23.

Abraham faces up to a year in prison in addition to a $2,000 fine. She first appeared on “16 and Pregnant” in 2009 before having daughter Sophia and has since starred in a host of projects for the network.

The former adult film star was jailed in a county jail on January 16 for allegedly slapping a club security guard after she was allegedly asked to leave but refused.

Fox News Digital has reached out to Abraham for comment.

A Los Angeles Police Department representative confirmed to Fox News Digital at the time that Abraham was arrested after someone made a citizen’s arrest while she was partying at a nightclub. .

Law enforcement officials told Fox News Digital that Abraham was arrested and booked after officers responded to a drum call at the club. On-site security was advised that there was a possibility of a fight on the roof of the facility. When the guards tried to escort Abraham out of her location, she slapped one of them.

“Security called the LAPD and placed the suspect under [private persons arrest] PPA arrest for assault and battery,” the Los Angeles Police Department statement read.

Abraham, for his part, shared a completely different view on social media shortly after the incident and claimed the entire altercation was planned by outside sources before praising authorities for stepping in to help him.

“I am posting this because no woman or man should ever be beaten, abused, conspired, tied up, set up, recorded and sold. I am placing a restraining order on @antonelloparloto livebad who made this dinner reservation and conspired to attack myself with @grandmaster_recorders staff as this was a complete ‘private person arrest’ setup,” she wrote.

The star went on to lament that she was “molested, bruised, men on me and beaten. As a single mother, harassed, beaten and conspired as a paying customer.” She called the club again and asked them to fire their management. She also thanked the police for “rescuing” her.

She added: “Woman, it’s a scary and dangerous world we live in, stand up for your rights and always take care of others even when everyone hurts and attacks you. You are resilient and you are stronger than all the weak people out there who hurt and traumatize us.”

Abraham has already been involved in another physical altercation with security officers. She pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of resisting police in November 2018 following a fight with a security guard at the Beverly Hills hotel in June.

The former ‘Couples Therapy’ alum checked into rehab after the incident for a 30-day stay to treat trauma. She had previously been arrested in 2013 for drunk driving and later participated in a voluntary rehabilitation program for alcohol addiction.
