Over the weekend, 90 Day Fiance star Larissa Dos Santos Lima was arrested for domestic battery against her husband, Colt.
After Larissa's panicked messages to fans, sent while locked in her bathroom, many expected that it would be Colt who was arrested.
Now that we've heard both sides of the story, we understand a little more of how this arrest went down, and what led to it.
Also, this is not Larissa's first arrest in the last five months.
It sounds pretty toxic, folks.
And parts of this sound a little terrifying.
Beware that there are, obviously, some 90 Day Fiance spoilers here.
Colt and Larissa Had a Huge Fight
We have both sides of their argument
Larissa locked herself in a bathroom
She issued what looked like a frantic plea to her followers, saying that Colt had taken her phone and encouraging them to message him to reconnect her.
She also seemed afraid that he would call the police
When the police arrived, it was Larissa who was arrested, not Colt
it started with Larissa being upset
Apparently, Colt (probably to avoid spoiling 90 Day Fiance) asked her to not interact with him on social media, which she took personally, and went on an Instagram rant about how it was selfish and hurtful.
Colt came home with flowers
This apparently did not have the intended effect upon Larissa, which she says that Colt took poorly
Larissa accuses Colt
Larissa showed her followers video of a mess that Colt allegedly made while angry. That is definitely not good.
Larissa had been cleaning at the time
She also lamented that he didn't seem to have respect for her or for housework, being accustomed to his mother doing it. It sounds like a lot of problems were bubbling ot the surface.
This is where things get scary
Larissa frantically took to Instagram, reporting that her phone was taken and her wifi turned off
She even changed her Instagram handle
This is STILL her Instagram handle, by the way
She even doxxed Colt in the process
Seemingly afraid that he would call the police but possibly fearful of more, she implored her followers to message him to reconnect her with the outside world.
The police DID arrive -- and Larissa was arrested
When you call the police over a domestic dispute, law enforcement have to arrest at least one spouse. This is because domestic battery is very serious, and also in the hopes of giving both parties time to cool off so that violence doesn't escalate after police leave. If Larissa was arrested, police must have believed that she had inflicted violence upon Colt that day.
And apparently this isn't the first time
Larissa was arrested this past June -- the very same month in which they got married. 90 Day Fiance is expected to cover that incident, at least.
Colt has shared his side of the story
Colt says that Larissa was freaking out at him and he had hoped that by disconnecting her from social media, he could get her to calm down. Instead, he says, that escalated the situation and sent her into a panic. (Taking someone's phone is cutting them off from the world, and can make people justifiably afraid for their safety)
Colt says this happened because of Larissa's high anxiety and depression
It sounds like a friend or a fan may have called the police, because they knocked down the door and handcuffed Colt before ultimately taking Larissa away. But Colt claims that no one was hurt, and says that he's not pressing charges against his wife.
This was so scary and so sad
We have to say that, despite the impression that the two made on 90 Day Fiance, Colt and Larissa have seemed to be getting along well with other, stable-seeming couples (Kirlyam and Alan are one of the nicest couples from the show). This shocking incident and arrest will hopefully be fully explained at the reunion.
