Marie Avgeropoulos who plays Octavia Blake in ‘The 100’ reportedly arrested for domestic violence
Marie Avgeropoulos, star of the hit show ‘The 100,’ was arrested for allegedly attacking her boyfriend on Tuesday but there were no press charges, just a 911 call
Marie Avgeropoulos, who plays Octavia Blake on the CW’s post-apocalyptic TV show 'The 100,' was reportedly arrested in Los Angeles, after allegedly physically attacking her boyfriend during an argument.
According to a TMZ report, things went south for the couple during a verbal argument on August 5, and the fight soon escalated to violence. Marie’s partner called the police from inside a car, according to TMZ. He reportedly told law enforcement officials that Marie hit him, and when cops showed up on the scene, they placed the 32-year-old actress in handcuffs.
Marie’s boyfriend had physical evidence of the violence and his body bore marks from the attack, according to TMZ. The star was immediately booked for domestic violence and was taken to jail. The actress’ mugshot was a tear-stained snapshot, and Marie looked miles away from her confident character played on 'The 100.'
A source told TMZ that Marie had been on new meds, and had mixed them with wine that night, which probably incited the violent reaction. The source also said that her boyfriend called police hoping they would diffuse the situation, but the idea backfired when they whisked Marie away to jail. Although her partner doesn’t plan on pressing any charges, he had to pull a $50,000 bond to bail her out of jail.
Meanwhile, Marie’s fans are eagerly anticipating a new season of 'The 100.' Just a week before the incident, the star celebrated the finale of season five of the show. The CW made the announcement back in May that viewers could expect a new season soon. Although no solid release date has been announced, the cast will likely not be filming for at least a few months, and season six of the show will likely air sometime next spring.
