'Bachelorette' Star

Accused of Bashing Woman

in Drunken Nightclub Attack

Former "Bachelorette" star Kasey Kahl smashed a woman in the face at a Fresno nightclub, giving her a bloody nose ... this according to the alleged victim ... though Kasey claims it was all in self-defense.

TMZ broke the story ... Kahl was arrested early Sunday morning for drunk and disorderly conduct at Club Habano's nightclub.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Kahl was accused of attacking a man named Richard Chaney outside the club ... and then smashing Chaney's girlfriend in the face when she tried to break up the fight.

Cops say ... Chaney's GF, Renee Idsinga, told them she and Cheney were leaving the club when a "very intoxicated" Kahl approached them and began "talking s**t."

Chaney told cops Kahl had been running his mouth about having banged one of Renee's friends.

According to the report, Idsinga says her BF told Kahl to "stop being a d**k and stop talking to her" .. and that's when Kahl got violent ... striking Chaney several times in the face and head."

Idsinga told cops Kahl struck her in the face during the melee, causing her nose to bleed. She also admitted she scratched Kahl's neck in an effort to break up the fight.

Cops say Renee's nose was still bleeding when they arrived to the scene -- as was Chaney's mouth.

Police also spoke with Kahl -- who told them he had "a lot" to drink ... but insisted he DID NOT instigate the fight. Instead, Kahl claimed, "It was self defense."

In the police report, the arresting officer noted, "Kahl made it a point to tell me that he was a celebrity and he was on several reality shows including 'The Bachelor' and 'Celebrity Couple's Retreat.'"

According to police, Kahl said he wanted to press charges against the couple -- and the couple wanted to press charges against him.

Cops say Kahl was so "intoxicated and belligerent" ... they felt he couldn't take care of himself ... so they booked him into Fresno County Jail for his own safety. He was eventually released ... after taking a very smiley mug shot.

Calls to Kahl's rep have not been returned.

Look at that mugshot. He looks like it's no big deal. I'm pretty sure that smile disappeared when Bubba creeped up behind him. Or maybe the smile got bigger.

This drunken douchebag sounds like he deserves a good punch in the face at the bar.

That guy Joren Van der Sloot who killed Natalie Holloway and a Peruvian girl also is overdue for a good azz whupin'.

At least Joran is going to be sitting in a nasty prison in a super hostile prison in Peru. I'm sure he'll have his azz beat several time over the next 25 years. Ha ha. Bye, bye Joran. I hope you enjoy your new prison life!

This guy is such a nerd. He actually thinks he is a "celebrity?" He is an uneducated tool from a small town, who sang like a geek on national TV to try to win a girl over (she laughed at him), then got the worst tattoo in history put on his wrist (like a girl - a la Lohan). It's funny he is bragging about having sex with some random girl, because I thought he likes guys - similar to the trashy tranny from Florida he used to "date." Then he hits a girl - what a class act.

Who cares. The dumb broad should have stayed out the way and let someone else handle it.

LESSON TO FEMALES, IF YOUR MAN IS FIGHTING, DON'T BE A LITTLE BIT((CH AND JUMP IN THE MIDDLE RUNNING YOUR FAT MOUTHS.
