Chanel West Coast, star of Rob Dyrdek's MTV shows Fantasy Factory and Ridiculousness, allegedly got into some ridiculousness of her own on Tuesday night.
The 26-year-old reality star and rapper, whose real name Chelsa Chanel Dudley, was arrested in West Hollywood, California early on Wednesday on suspicion of misdemeanor battery after allegedly getting into a fight with a woman inside a nightclub, a police spokesperson told E! News. Her arrest was captured on video.
Dudley was released from custody later that night. On Wednesday afternoon, she took to Twitter and talked about the incident. She denied getting into a fight with a girl and posted photos of herself sporting bruises, which she claims were caused by police officers.
In the edited video, posted by TMZ, Dudley is seen wearing a Mickey and Minnie Mouse and sitting with arm arms bound behind her back on a flower bed on a sidewalk talking to two men wearing navy uniforms, who are crouching by her. A police spokesperson told E! News they were security guards. She is later seen being driven away in a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department squad car.
A police spokesperson told E! News that a person had made a citizen's arrest and that Dudley was later detained and booked at a police station on a battery charge. She was not accused of assaulting an officer. No comment was made about her physical condition or her behavior.
"I was violently held by 2 huge men cops last night for nothing and have bruises all over my arms," she tweeted, alongside photos of her wearing the same tank top and sporting bruises on both lower arms.

In the video, she is seen arguing with the men.
"I told you you could go home after you kicked me and then you punched me," one of them tells Dudley. "I tried to let you go home. Understand that. Too late now."
She is later seen telling a nearby unidentified person, "He's being an a--hole...he was being really mean."
"I let you go home," the man replies. "I gave you the chance to go home after you kicked me."
She is then seen pleading with him, calmly, to which he responds, "You're gonna go for bribery now, too?"
"I'm not trying to make you look stupid," she says. "Can you just do me a favor? I am a normal f--king girl."
She is later seen telling the men, "I wasn't kicking and attacking. You sound crazy. I'm sorry, but like, kicking and attacking? I've been on TV for 17 seasons."
"Congratulations," one of them tells her.
A third man wearing what appears to be a sheriff's department deputy's uniform is then seen near them. He asks her if she wants to go home.
"Totally," she replies. "I did nothing."
