Washington: Hours after actor Amanda Stanton was arrested for allegedly battering boyfriend Bobby Jacobs in Las Vegas, the former has addressed the act, calling it ’embarrassing’.
The former ‘Bachelor’ contestant’s rep Steve Honig, told E! News, “Amanda is embarrassed and ashamed this happened and sincerely apologises to hotel security and the Las Vegas Police Department. Amanda is a gentle, respectful person who has never gotten physical with anyone under any circumstance.”
He further explained that Stanton had gotten a bit rambunctious, following which the hotel security asked her and Bobby to be quiet. “Amanda gave Bobby what she thought was a playful shove. The hotel security did their job and reported the incident to the police, who in turn did their job.”
“Stanton’s boyfriend assured the police that it was not an ill-intended shove, the police still had to do their job which Amanda completely respects and understands,” said Honig.
Through the course of the investigation, police said that there was probable cause to arrest her on one count of domestic violence.
Amanda became popular after appearing on season 20 of ‘The Bachelor’ with Ben Higgins in 2016.
