Farrah Abraham was arrested for battery and trespassing during a drunken night out. The former Teen Mom OG star exclusively revealed to RadarOnline.com that the MTV show is to blame for her bust – not her behavior!

“I was not guilty of anything, of trespassing or misdemeanor battery,” she told Radar at the MTV Movie Awards on June 18. “There was no reason for anyone to speak out. Everyone I work with knows the truth, I was standing there and I was targeted.”

When asked why she felt targeted, she blamed her run on Teen Mom OG.

“Why has everything happened to me for the last nine years?” she asked. “Because I was on TV and made out to be a villain. I’m actually a nice, wonderful person working her a** off.”

She explained how terrifying it was to be behind bars in Beverly Hills Jail.

“Imagine not having your phone or knowing what’s going on for 12 hours,” she said. “Walking out to be greeted by huge news crews. I was just thinking about my family.”

Abraham, 27, isn’t letting the arrest stop her from pursing her career in film.

“I’m focusing on my first movie and hoping to work with Paramount, a Viacom-owned company,” she said. “I’m working on screen writing and I hope one day I can do some comedy, I got a lot of s**t to talk!”

As Radar previously reported, the Beverly Hills Police Department responded to the Beverly Hills Hotel for a “disturbance” involving Abraham at 1:19 am.

“A male adult hotel security officer reported that he asked Abraham to leave the hotel after she refused to disengage from a verbal altercation with hotel guests,” Lieutenant Elisabeth Albanese told Radar. “The security officer reported that Abraham struck him in the face with her forearm, grabbed his ear and pushed him in the face as he attempted to prevent her from re-entering the hotel.”

The officer added, “Officers noted that Abraham exhibited signs of intoxication during the investigation.”

Abraham, who is mother to daughter Sophia, 9, was arrested for misdemeanor battery and trespassing. She was held on $500 bail.
