Amanda Stanton Mugshot And New Details About ‘The Bachelor’ Contestant’s Domestic Violence Arrest

Former Bachelor contestant Amanda Stanton was arrested for domestic violence. Las Vegas police released Stanton’s mugshot and it’s definitely “Mugshot Bae” worthy.

Stanton first appeared on the Bachelor franchise during Ben Higgins’ season, memorably joining the cast as a single mom. Though she didn’t win that season (she came in 4th), she went on to appear on Season 3 of the spinoff Bachelor in Paradise and got engaged to Josh Murray — but it didn’t last long.

Stanton and Murray went through a dramatic breakup in 2017, and in 2018, Stanton began dating Bobby Jacobs.

“We met on Instagram,” Stanton told Us Weekly in July 2018 about how she and Jacobs got together. “We don’t really have a great story. I wish we had a more exciting story. We were saying that we should just say we met at the dog park or something.”

Well, their relationship has definitely gotten more exciting (if that’s the word you want to use), thanks to Stanton’s arrest.

Sources told TMZ that the two were out at a coed bachelorette party at a hotel in Las Vegas.

According to police, security approached their hotel room due to a noise complaint. As Jacobs talked to security, a visibly intoxicated Stanton got involved and “shoved” Jacobs out of the way.

"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,” Stanton’s representative said in a statement to Access.

The shove prompted security to call the police, who arrested Stanton and booked her for domestic violence “despite Bobby explaining this was not an ill-intended shove,” according to the statement.

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

Sources told TMZ that the incident hasn’t broken Stanton up, and Stanton posted a photo of she and Jacobs on her Instagram story after the incident. They reportedly believe someone may have drugged Stanton.
