The niece of fashion designer Ralph Lauren has appeared in an Irish court on charges of being drunk and disorderly on a New York-bound plane.
Irish police say she was charged with being intoxicated and breaching the peace and held in custody overnight.
The 41-year-old appeared Tuesday before Killaloe District Court in western Ireland — the hearing held in a pub because the area has no courthouse.
Police officer Yvette Walsh told the hearing that when Lauren was being detained she told officers: "Can you say that in English, please?"
Judge Patrick Durcan said Lauren had indicated she would plead guilty, but he would formally hear her plea Wednesday.
