While the investigation is still going on, police say there was probable cause to arrest the reality star on one count of battery domestic violence.

Bobby assured the police it "was not an ill-intended shove, the police still had to do their job which Amanda completely respects and understands."

Shortly after the incident, Amanda said via her representative that she is embarrassed by her recent arrest.

The rep. said told in a statement to E! News,

Amanda is embarrassed and ashamed this happened and sincerely apologizes to hotel security and the Las Vegas Police Department. Amanda is a gentle, respectful person who has never gotten physical with anyone under any circumstance.

He explained,

That evening she had a few drinks at a bachelorette party and when hotel security asked her and Bobby to quiet down, she got a bit rambunctious. Amanda gave Bobby what she thought was a playful shove; hotel security did their job and reported the incident to the police, who in turn did their job.

Amanda, who was previously married to ex-husband Nick Buonfiglio (married - 2012 : Divorced 2015), rose to fame after appearing on The Bachelor season 20 along with Ben Higgins in 2016.

The mother of two children, Amanda was previously also engaged to fellow season 4 Bachelor in Paradise star Josh Murray. In addition, she also briefly dated season 4 Bachelor in Paradise star Robby Hayes.
