Amanda Stanton, who’s primarily known for competing for Ben Higgins’ affections in the twentieth season of The Bachelor, was arrested on Monday for domestic violence.
BACHELOR STAR AMANDA STANTON ARRESTED FOR BATTERING HER BOYFRIEND
Stanton was celebrating a friend’s bachelorette party at Las Vegas over the weekend when the incident occurred. At about 3:15 a.m., local authorities arrived at Stanton’s hotel having received a call regarding domestic violence. Allegedly, Stanton attacked her boyfriend, Bobby Jacobs. The couple have been dating since the spring.
According to People, the police’s investigation determined that there was “probable cause to arrest Stanton on one count of battery domestic violence.” The 28-year-old reality star was then taken to the Clark County Detention Center, getting released later that day per TMZ’s report.
According to a statement by Stanton’s representative Steve Honig, the fan favorite Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise alumni is “embarrassed and ashamed this happened and sincerely apologizes to hotel security and the Las Vegas Police Department.”
Continuing, Honig said, “Amanda is a gentle, respectful person who has never gotten physical with anyone under any circumstance. That evening she had a few drinks at a bachelorette party and when hotel security asked her and Bobby to quiet down, she got a bit rambunctious.”
In explaining Stanton’s alleged assault, Honig states the mother-of-two thought she gave her boyfriend “a playful shove.” Consequently, “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.”
