'The 100' Star Marie Avgeropoulos Arrested for Alleged Domestic Violence

The Canadian actress was arrested earlier this month after her boyfriend called the police from his car and claimed his girlfriend had hit him during a verbal dispute.

AceShowbiz - "The 100" star Marie Avgeropoulos was reportedly arrested for domestic violence earlier in August.

The Canadian actress, who has played the edgy Octavia Blake in the post-apocalyptic sci-fi series since 2014, was reportedly arrested and booked for felony domestic violence in Los Angeles on August 5 after her unnamed boyfriend called the police from his car claiming his girlfriend had hit him during a verbal dispute. When officers arrived on the scene, they noticed marks on the man's body and took Avgeropoulos into custody.

Editors at TMZ.com have obtained the 32-year-old's mugshot, in which she is crying, with tears visible on both cheeks.

A source told the website the boyfriend called the police hoping they would simply diffuse the situation, not arrest his girlfriend. He reportedly begged the cops not to take her into custody and even bailed her out of jail on a $50,000 (£39,000) bond. He is reportedly declining to press charges.

A source close to the actress claims she was on new medication which she had mixed with wine during dinner that evening and she ended up having a bad reaction.

Avgeropoulos previously dated "Twilight" actor Taylor Lautner after meeting on the set of movie "Tracers". They split in 2015 after just over a year together.
