MUG SHOT Kasey Kahl arrested for felony assault and public intoxication

Kasey Kahl mug shot from August 3 2012 after an assault in which he was allegedly high on paint thinner

Hopeless romantic Kasey Kahl became famous by getting trampled on by female stars of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, first getting left on a glacier in Iceland after being dumped by The Bachelorette Ali Fedotowski on a 2-on-1 date in favor of pro wrestling uber villain Justin Rego, and then getting emotionally and physically trampled on by his infamously b!tchy girlfriend (and winner of Jake Pavelka’s season of The Bachelor) Vienna Girardi on the second season of Bachelor Pad and on Couples Therapy.

It seems that all the abuse and heartbreak was just too much for Kasey, who literally wore his heart on his sleeve wrist, and the 29-year-old did what so many troubled people do when they believe there’s nowhere else to turn… He got intoxicated and into a bar brawl?

That appears to be the case after Kasey Kahl was arrested earlier today and charged with “multiple felonies for allegedly attacking two people at a nightclub earlier this year … while under the influence of a paint thinner,” according to TMZ.

What’s amazing to me is that the mug shot photo of Kasey Kahl above, looking like the poster child for the dangers of improper ventilation, was taken earlier today, while the incident in question took place outside of Club Habano’s nightclub in Fresno, California on January 15! Kahl allegedly attacked Richard Cheney and then punched his girlfriend in the face in the incident, and authorities believe Kahl was drunk and on drugs at the time, according to legal documents.

From TMZ:

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.”

Kasey Kahl has been charged with 2 counts of felony assault, 1 count of battery with serious bodily injury and 1 count of public intoxication. If convicted of all four felonies, he could face up to 8 years in prison, where I’m guessing there will be some fellers who really admire his perty heart tattoo.

But facing jail time isn’t the only negative thing to stem from Kasey’s arrest, it also put a huge blemish on his award for Prettiest Reality Show Star Mug Shot Ever (which was, ironically, from his initial arrest for the same incident back in January). Here are the two contrasting Kasey Kahls, which look like some sort of modern interpretation of the famous Greek comedy and tragedy masks:

And I guess I should ask the obvious question – does toluene affect your voice at all?
