Larissa Dos Santos Lima may have recently called herself a survivor on Instagram, but the Las Vegas Police Department had a different label for this 90 Day Fiance star over the weekend:
As previously reported, the TLC reality star was arrested a few days ago on a charge of domestic battery.
New details (and Larissa’s mug shot!) regarding the incident have now emerged on the Internet.
“On Nov. 10, 2018, at approximately 1:15 p.m., officers were dispatched to a family disturbance at a residence in Northwest Las Vegas,” reads a statement by Las Vegas Police Officer Larry Hadfield.
This statement was obtained by In Touch Weekly and it continues:
“Two people were contacted at the home who were arguing.
“At the conclusion of the investigation, it was determined that Dos Santos had committed Battery Domestic Violence on her husband and transported to the Clark County Detention Center.”
Specifically, Larissa was arrested and detained on one count of misdemeanor domestic battery last Saturday.
She freaked fans out and caused major concerns when she locked herself in a bathroom, added her phone number to her Instagram bio and wrote on social media:
HELP ME …HE TURNED OFF HIDE MY PHONE HELP ME HE WANTS TO CALL THE POLICE HELP ME.
Larissa and her fiance, Colt, it should be noted, met online and are featured on this very season of 90 Day Fiance.
You can tune in each week to see their unusual relationship play out.
According to Larissa, her fight with Colt took place because he told his girlfriend NOT to share any photos of him on her Instagram account.
He said the status of their relationship had to remain a mystery, for the sake of the show.
She then went on to allege that Colt caused some damage in their home the two bickered over this demand — and she also claims that, at some point during their fight, he took her phone away.
That’s when she posted the above plea for help.
After posting a $ 1,000 bond, Larissa went back on Instagram in order to assure supporters that she was fine.
“Hello everyone. Thank you for the support and love. I am safe and resting,” she wrote, adding:
The past 48 hours have been the most difficult in my life. But reading the messages from all of you has made me smile. God bless and thank you. I’ll update soon.”
But, wait, is she still with Colt?
“We are together and strong. We just choose [to not] expose it,” Larissa added.
Colt, meanwhile, has also responded to questions and stories about Larissa’s arrest, as well as his role in the incident.
He thinks people on the World Wide Web should stop playing amateur detective and leave the couple alone, basically.
“Self proclaimed internet sleuths who think they are Woodward and Bernstein,” he wrote late Monday on Instagram.
“They are simply people that spread misinformation, lies, and chaos to make themselves look important. They are nothing and will never be relevant.”
We don’t know what actually transpired between Colt and Larissa, of course, but we can say this much:
When you are accused of being at the center of a domestic battery confrontation… you may be best served NOT to come across as hostile in your response to it.
