When Kasey Kahl posed for the booking photo at right in January, it was dubbed the “prettiest mug shot” Fresno Police officers “ever [saw] come into their station.”
It's doubtful sheriff's deputies working the Orange County Jail beat are saying the same thing about the mug posed for this weekend by the former cast member of ABC's The Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad and VH1's Couples Therapy, as witnessed after the jump.
See, Kahl and his reps were able to laugh off his Fresno arrest as the result of his getting too loud outside a joint called Club Habanos. Gossip mongers went with the glamor-mug angle, ran with it and then promptly forgot all about the incident involving spacey-eyed bachelorette Vienna Girardi's former squeeze.
But investigators in Fresno were not so forgiving, and they claim to have gathered enough evidence to charge 29-year-old Kahl with multiple felonies for allegedly
attacking two people that Jan. 15 night. The Clovis-born “entrepreneur” is accused of being high on paint thinner–soooo Clovis; just sayin'–when he attacked a man and his girlfriend.
Kahl was picked up in Irvine on a failure to appear warrant, charged with two counts of felony assault, one count of
battery with serious bodily injury, and one count of public
intoxication for the Fresno incident and, after some time pouting in his Santa Ana cell, released.
He is due in a Fresno courtroom in September, but he reportedly denied the charges–and of having ever huffed paint thinner–to that arbiter of justice, TMZ. Well, Harvey Levin is a lawyer.
Kahl claims he was merely defending himself against his alleged victim, who Kahl swears threw the first punch.
