'Bachelor In Paradise' Alum Arrested For Domestic Violence After Allegedly Shoving Boyfriend
Amanda Stanton said she felt “embarrassed” and “ashamed” in a statement following her arrest.
“Bachelor in Paradise” alum Amanda Stanton was arrested over the weekend for domestic battery after an altercation with her boyfriend at a Las Vegas hotel.
Authorities took the reality TV star into custody early Monday morning, Entertainment Tonight reports, after she and her boyfriend, Bobby Jacobs, got into an altercation at the Wynn hotel and casino. Stanton is alleged to have “battered” her partner in a hotel room, Las Vegas Metro Police told the outlet.
According to a statement from Stanton’s representatives, the 28-year-old was attending a bachelorette party where she “had a few drinks,” Entertainment Tonight reports. She then got “rambunctious” after hotel security asked her and Jacobs to lower their volume, which allegedly led to a physical interaction with Jacobs.
Her statement explained, “Amanda gave Bobby what she thought was a playful shove; hotel security did their job and reported the incident to the police, who in turn did their job. Despite Bobby explaining this was not an ill-intended shove, the police still had to do their job which Amanda completely respects and understands.”
Police were called at around 3:15 a.m. and arrested Stanton on one count of battery domestic violence, the Las Vegas Metro Police told Entertainment Tonight. She was then transported to Clark County Detention Center and booked. According to TMZ, Stanton was released later that day.
Stanton apologized through a representative's statement to ET.
“Amanda is embarrassed and ashamed this happened and sincerely apologizes to hotel security and the Las Vegas Police Department,” the statement reads. “Amanda is a gentle, respectful person who has never gotten physical with anyone under any circumstance.”
