Why Was Gabbie Egan Arrested?
Gabbie was arrested on July 24, 2021, during a vacation in Las Vegas with husband Cody to celebrate their three-year wedding anniversary. Gabbie was booked on two counts of battery by prisoner on a first responder and one count of interference with a public officer by threat, In Touch confirmed. She was released from jail on July 25 on her own recognizance with intensive supervision. A hearing for a status check on the filing of the criminal complaint is set for August 25.
According to the police report obtained by In Touch, Egan was at the Marquee pool club, located at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas when she allegedly started “causing a disturbance” and started yelling at patrons. When security asked her to leave, she refused so they detained her for trespassing and she allegedly tried to kick the security guard “in the testicles,” but hit his leg instead. When Las Vegas Police Department officers arrived on the scene, she allegedly tried to kick a cop “in the testicles” while she was being transferred into their custody, but hit his “knee cap” instead. While she was being searched, she also allegedly head-butted another cop “in the nose with the back of her head.”
“Ms. Egan is a proud veteran of our military, a loving mother to her children, and successful business owner,” Egan’s lawyer, Jack E. Buchanan of Buchanan Defense Law in Las Vegas, told In Touch in a statement. “The preceding 21 years of her life prior to this incident have been void of any sort of contact with law enforcement or any participation or association with anything criminal in nature. It would be premature to address the July 24 incident in Las Vegas, as to date, no formal charges have been filed against her, and no official discovery has been turned over regarding this matter. Ms. Egan looks forward to addressing the allegations in a fair, criminal proceeding, where we are hopeful her name will be cleared and restored to the exemplary individual she is and who individuals closest to her will also unequivocally attest to.”
