'90 Day Fiancé' star Larissa Dos Santos Lima was arrested in Nevada over the weekend over domestic battery charges.
E!News reports that 32-year-old Larissa, who currently features on season six of the TLC series with Colt Johnson, was originally being held on a $3,000 bail. However, court reports show that there was a $2,000 reduction in her bail amount and her court hearing is scheduled for Tuesday morning. All this was confirmed by Clark County inmate records.
Larissa's arrest took place a short while after she put up a series of concerning social media posts. She even changed her Instagram username to @helpmeimwithoutphone. The same profile read, "HE TURNED OFF HIDE MY PHONE," and "HELP ME HE WANTS TO CALL THE POLICE HELP ME."
Colt also put up multiple Instagram stories about Larissa's arrest but which were soon deleted. Fans however managed to capture some of the stories. The stories had messages that read, "Larissa was arrested this afternoon. She suffers from high anxiety and severe depression. She overreacts to problems that do not exist."
Another message from Colt's account read, "I proceeded to deactivate her phone to try to defuse the situation." He continued, "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."
In other Instagram stories, Colt talked about how the police interviewed both him and Larissa and then went on to arrest her. He added, "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."
Larissa, who is originally from Brazil, met Colt online. They first met each other in Mexico, and in a span of a few days Colt went on to propose to her. Court records suggest that this isn't the first time Larissa has been arrested for domestic violence. She was arrested earlier this year on similar charges, which have now been dismissed.
