Over the weekend, 90 Day Fiancé star Larissa Dos Santos Lima was arrested on one count of misdemeanor domestic battery after a fight with her husband Colt Johnson, as In Touch previously reported. But this incident wasn’t the first time that Larissa got in trouble with the law — this is actually the second time she’s been arrested, and the first incident occurred just days before she and Colt got married.
According to the Las Vegas Justice Court docket obtained by In Touch, Larissa was also arrested and charged for misdemeanor domestic battery on June 19, five days before she married Colt. She pleaded not guilty to the charge, which was later dropped by prosecutors. Her charges for that July incident was then dismissed by a judge in October.
Just one month later, Larissa landed herself in trouble with the law again after cops were called to the Las Vegas home she shares with Colt and his mother, Debbie Johnson. Debbie was not home at the time of the incident because she was in NYC for her appearance on 90 Day Fiancé Live, but Larissa shared details about the fight she had with Colt that eventually led to her second arrest.
In a series of videos on her Instagram story, Larissa explained that Colt told her not to post any photos of him or with him on social media because he wanted to hide their relationship from their followers in order to preserve their current storyline on 90 Day Fiancé. But Larissa was upset that Colt didn’t want anyone to know they were still together, which led to an argument between the couple.
Eventually, the situation allegedly escalated to the point where Colt took Larissa’s phone, which prompted her to use her Instagram bio as a way to plea for help. Concerned fans called the cops, and Colt issued a statement in a now-deleted Instagram post explaining why Larissa was taken into custody.
“The police interviewed us but not long after they decided to arrest in Larissa,” Colt wrote. “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.”
