Victoria Larson from 'The Bachelor' has gone private on Instagram. The self-dubbed queen is one of the most-hated suitresses on Matt James' season, and for good reason. Since night one, Victoria has been stirring up drama and has ended up on the hate list of many women on the show as well as among the audience.

Turns out, Victoria's past has come back to haunt her and to give her haters one more reason that will help justify their hate for her. While Victoria expects nothing less than royal treatment, there was a time when she was arrested after she tried to steal $250 worth of merchandise from a supermarket in Tallahassee, Florida.

According to an official report, she was arrested on July 3, 2012, after the then 19-year-old was caught on camera stealing 25 items, including groceries and makeup.

A witness saw her place items in a reusable shopping bag inside her shopping cart, but when she went to pay at self-checkout, she didn't scan the items in the bag, only the other items in her cart. After she left the store, Victoria was brought back in and police were called. She did not confess though and provided a written statement. Surveillance tapes allegedly showed her stealing the items.

She was then arrested and taken to Leon County Jail, according to E! News.

Victoria was behind bars for two whole days and was released after posting a $1,000 bail. The next month, she faced petty theft charges in court and entered a plea of no contest, according to the judgment and sentencing documents that the outlet had access to. Victoria was ordered to serve probation for six months as she had already spent two days in jail.

Victoria had seemed immune to all the hate that she was being subjected to by Bachelor Nation fans after watching her antics on the show. However, the jabs that she received as the stealing news surfaced seem to have broken her as she's changed her Instagram account settings and made it private. Before doing so, she shared a cryptic message, "Every saint has a past & every sinner has a future. John 8: 7," she wrote on January 22.
