Haley Reinhart Charged with Punching Bouncher

A former "American Idol" contestant originally from the Chicago area was arrested over the weekend after she punched a security guard at a suburban bar, Palatine police said.

Haley Reinhart, 26, who competed in the 10th season of "American Idol," was charged with misdemeanor battery after an argument with security staff at the Lamplighter Inn Tavern & Grille, 60 N. Bothwell St. in Palatine, according to a news release.

Her attorney Dina LaPolt said Reinhart was assaulted by bouncers at the Lamplighter. 

"After forcefully removing Ms. Reinhart, they violently beat her friend, who sustained multiple injuries," LaPolt said in an emailed statement. "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."
