Larissa Dos Santos Lima was arrested on November 10th — the 90 Day Fiance star busted after a domestic battery incident in Nevada.
“Officers were dispatched to a family disturbance at a residence in Northwest Las Vegas,” around 1:15 pm, a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department official told People.
“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 was transported to the Clark County Detention Center,” the officer reported.
Larissa, 32, was released from the Clark County Detention Center on Monday, and was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday. The court date was postponed to December 11, according to In Touch.
TLC is chronicling Larissa’s early days in the United States, after leaving her home country of Brazil to join fiance, Colt Johnson, 33, through the K1 Visa process.
Larissa shared an Instagram video of a toppled shelf with her followers during the day of the arrest, claiming that Colt had lashed out in anger. She also complained that Colt often regulates her social media habits. The reality star cranked the dramatic tone to her Instagram audience, supposedly calling her fans to action.
“He turned off hide my phone. Help he wants to call the police help me,” Larissa’s account profile read.
Colt shared his side of the story after Larissa’s social media alert, on his own Instagram story.
“Larissa was arrested this afternoon. She suffers from high anxiety and several[sic] depression. She over reacted to problems that do not exist,” Colt wrote.
“I proceeded to deactivate her phone to try to defuse the situation. This escalated issues and matters became worse. She felt this action was a threat towards her and tried to reach out for help. Not long after her cry was posted, the police came and knocked down the front door. They drew their guns at me and handcuffed me.”
“The police interviewed us but not long after they decided to arrest Larissa,” Colt alleged. “No one was hurt and I did not press charges against my wife. However it is policy in the state of Nevada that since we are in a domestic partnership, someone had to be arrested.”
On Tuesday, Larissa returned to Instagram, asking her fans for privacy and support, while the couple recovers from the public ruckus. She admitted that their relationship is “fragile” but noted that they remain in love.
Do you believe that this messy reality couple will go the distance?
