Kasey Kahl

'Bachelorette' Star Jailed

Allegedly Huffed Paint Thinner

EXCLUSIVE

Kasey Kahl's newest mugs hot
Former "Bachelorette" star Kasey Kahl is back behind bars ... after being charged with multiple felonies for allegedly attacking two people at a nightclub earlier this year ... while under the influence of a paint thinner. 

TMZ has learned ... months after the incident, prosecutors decided there was enough evidence to charge Kahl with felony assault for allegedly beating up a man and a woman on January 15.

After the charges were filed, a judge issued a warrant for his arrest ... and this morning, cops took the 29-year-old into custody ... and booked him into a jail in Orange County, CA.

According to legal documents, officials believe Kahl was drunk and on drugs when he attacked a man named Richard Cheney outside of Club Habano's nightclub in Fresno ... and then bashed Richard's GF in the face. 

Kahl has been charged with 2 counts of felony assault, 1 count of battery with serious bodily injury and 1 count of public intoxication.

According to documents, officials believe Kahl was under the influence of both alcohol and a drug called toluene at the time of the attack ... an inhalant associated with paint thinners.

Kasey's reps have previously claimed the reality star is innocent -- and accused the alleged victims of antagonizing him in an effort to get their "15 minutes of fame."

If convicted on all 4 felony charges -- Kahl faces up to 8 years in prison.

update_bar
Law enforcement sources tell us ... there was an error on the charging document ... and it should NOT have stated that Kahl was suspected of being under the influence of toluene. 

Kahl also told TMZ he never, ever huffed paint.

1. Why does he have a "Rep"?
2. He is not a celebrity, never has been, never will be.
3. Why are they looking to him for THEIR 15 minutes of fame, has he even had his?
4. Is him huffing paint thinner the reason why he sounds like Kermit the Frog when he talks?

Not surprised. He's always been an idiot. I think the only normal ones out of that entire franchise are Peyton and Chris Lambton and Chris' boys, excluding KK. All the rest are attention w/hores. All of them. Love and protect my azz.

This guy was and is the biggest cheese ball loser ever. He is such a geek and when he got that idiotic tattoo on his wrist and sang his terrible "love" songs to ugly Ali, I was dying in laughter. Actually, it was so bad that it was hard to watch. Obviously, he is a loser who is dependent on drugs and booze, because he can't cope in society. Send his butt to jail!!! He should have to pay all medical bills, etc as well.

Shocking? Not. Anyone who goes on a reality show is either a complete egomaniac or is not all there.

Lol. If you're going to do drugs or want to be intoxicated, at least pick something more high brow than paint thinner. How embarrassing.

Ironic statement from his camp, seeing as how his "15 minutes" never came.
