Lindsey Knickerbocker, Daughter from Early Real Housewives of OC, Popped for Being Really Drunk, Ramming Cars and Punching Cop

Lindsey Knickerbocker, who appeared in an early episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County that famously featured her mother encouraging her to go topless for a fashion shoot, allegedly drove drunk, rammed two parked cars on Balboa Island and punched a cop late last year, a gossip site has reportedly confirmed.

Newport Beach Police are claimed to have logged the 23-year-old's blood alcohol content after her arrest at .32, four times the legal limit in California.

TMZ breaks the news that, according to police, Knickerbocker fled to a friend's nearby home after ramming the vehicles parked on Balboa Island Dec. 14, but she was later met by at least one officer, who she is alleged to have punched in the stomach. Knickerbocker was arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run, battery on a police officer and driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher, say police.

One of two daughters of Tammy Knickerbocker, who appeared on seasons 2 and 3 of the Bravo reality TV show, Lindsey also appeared onscreen occasionally, as did her sister Megan Knickerbocker. Here they are enjoying "A Knickerbocker Spa Day":

Among the program's most-talked-about moments happened in the fourth-ever episode of what would become the pioneer for the now multi-city Real Housewives franchise. Tammy had arranged for Lindsey to model jeans at the now-closed Java Jeans Bar in Anaheim. The daughter was reluctant to pose but needed the cash. The mother obviously was not reluctant, suggesting her girl wear suggestive outfits and even bare her breasts at the photo shoot.

"[It] just looks like you're pimping out your own daughter," Megan objected.

"Oh really Megan?" replied the mother. "Are you having a good time here or what? Or did you just come here to harass me?"

Fingers crossed that good times roll for Lindsey at a court hearing next month in Newport Beach's Harbor Justice Center.

Clearly she didn't win the case contesting Daddy's wife getting everything due to lacking a will or trust.

Most people get shot  by the police when they ram cars. Again another slow news day. :o(

@MattCoker I wondered to myself when I read this on TMZ if you were going to do an article on her.  She was pretty drunk!  I'm glad you are still covering the OC Housewives!
