Tinsley Mortimer: Arrested for Incessant Door Banging!

by at .

Tinsley Mortimer is in trouble with the law because she banged for hours in Florida over the weekend.

Banged for hours on the door of her ex-boyfriend's house, we should say.

The television personality and socialite was arrested in Palm Beach on Saturday for trespassing, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. 

She is accused of going on to the property of a former flame, Nico Fanjul, and sitting outside “for hours” while knocking incessantly on the door.

According to the official police report, the former High Society star (really! It was a show on The CW and everything!) actually called the authorities herself in order to ask for a “civil standby” because she yearned to retrieve belongings from her ex-residence.

After being told that she was trespassing and ought to come to the police station for assistance, Mortimer allegedly responded by screaming into the phone and hanging up.

At this point, authorities were dispatched to the home.

When officers arrived, they reportedly found Mortimer crying and yelling.

She told them that Fanjul was in the house with another woman and that she simply wanted to get her purse from inside.

But Fanjul insisted to the cops that he did not have her purse... and Mortimer was placed under arrest.

"Tinsley and Nico broke up, and she cannot get over it," an insider tells Us Weekly.

"She was frantic and very upset. Finally they called the police to get her out of there. She's not a bad person but she was too upset to be thinking rationally."

Hey, we've all been there!

Not here, necessarily. But there, you know?

Mortimer, 40, was released on her own recognizance around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, a mere two and a half hours after she was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on the misdemeanor charge.
