American Idol's Haley Reinhart Arrested for Punching a Bouncer

Haley Reinhart, best known for finishing in third place on American Idol‘s tenth season, was arrested over the weekend for punching a bouncer.

The 26-year-old singer was arrested in the early morning hours of Saturday (July 8) in Chicago, Ill.

After Haley and her friends allegedly knocked over a table at the Lamplighter Inn, the bouncers tossed out the group. While they were being escorted out of the bar, Haley reportedly punched the bouncer, according to TMZ. She was booked for battery.

Haley‘s lawyer says that she was actually assaulted by the bouncers.

“Without provocation, Haley Reinhart was assaulted by bouncers at the Lamplighter Inn,” lawyer Dina LaPolt says in a statement. “After forcefully removing Ms. Reinhart, they violently beat her friend, who sustained multiple injuries. We believe that she will be exonerated of all charges once the investigation is completed. We plan on taking legal action against all those who were involved in this unfortunate incident.”

Haley recently dropped her cover of “Baby, It’s You” and she is currently starring on Netflix’s show F Is For Family.

    Instead of attacking people like Haley, the writers need to get all the facts. As it is, video has shown that she did nothing wrong.
