Former American Idol Contestant Haley Reinhart Arrested for Battery

A former American Idol contestant was arrested early Saturday morning for battery after allegedly punching a bouncer.

Haley Reinhart, 26, was arrested on July 8 at 2 a.m. in Palatine, Illinois. She was charged with one count of battery, with a court date scheduled for Aug. 2.

According to a police report obtained by PEOPLE, cops arrived after security staff at the bar reported that several customers had been asked to leave after knocking over a table.

As the group was being lead out, Reinhart began arguing with a security staff member and, the report says, allegedly punched them in the face.

Reinhart was eliminated from American Idol in September 2016.
