Who Is Bobby Jacobs? Details Amanda Stanton Boyfriend Arrest

The Bachelor's Amanda Stanton was arrested last week on domestic violence charges involving her boyfriend, Bobby Jacobs, and the pair seem to have worked things out.

Stanton, who appeared on season 20 of The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise's season three, was in Las Vegas for a friend's bachelorette party when she reportedly shoved Jacobs as he was talking to officers who responded to a noise complaint. She was arrested Sept. 10 for misdemeanor domestic violence, TMZ reported. 

According to arrest reports obtained by RadarStanton began yelling at Jacobs for not responding to her messages. He claimed he was asleep and that Stanton began to hit him after hours of arguing. The 32-year-old said Stanton "swung" a hotel phone at him and "continued to scratch and pinch" him. Jacobs called some friends to the hotel room and they alerted hotel security.


Stanton has since apologized for the incident through her rep, Steve Honig.

“Amanda is embarrassed and ashamed this happened and sincerely apologizes to hotel security and the Las Vegas Police Department," Honig said in a statement to PEOPLE. "Amanda is a gentle, respectful person who has never gotten physical with anyone under any circumstance. 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,” Honig continued. “Despite Bobby explaining this was not an ill-intended shove, the police still had to do their job which Amanda completely respects and understands.”

“Amanda continues to be embarrassed by her behavior and greatly regrets the incident ever occurred,” Honig wrote in a separate statement to PEOPLE. “She apologizes to everyone for the trouble she has caused and is very grateful for Bobby’s love and support."

Stanton was released Monday and it looks like the couple is still together, despite the alleged altercation. The 28-year-old reality star posted a photo of her and Jacobs relaxing on a private jet on her Instagram story Tuesday and later shared a picture of her and Jacobs enjoying ice cream as she rests her head on his shoulder.

So who is Stanton's forgiving boyfriend of six months? Here is everything you need to know about Bobby Jacobs.

1. He's a professional volleyball player.


Jacobs plays for the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour League and ranked 81st in 2018, up from 112th last year, according to his Beach Volleyball Database profile. He measures in at 6-foot-6-inches tall — over a foot taller than Stanton, who is just over 5 feet.

2. He co-founded a business.


Jacobs is the co-founder of Tillow, an ingenious spin-off of a regular beach towel.

The product, which Jacobs founded with Katie Everds, is an all-in-one towel that includes a pillow, water-resistant storage pocket, and turns into a bag for easy storage and transport. 

3. His pup has his own Instagram account. 


Yes, he's a doggy dad! Jacobs is the loving father of a fluffy Samoyed puppy named Uzzi. The white ball of fur even has his own Insta!

The page features the gentle giant (who isn't even one yet!) cuddling with Jacobs and Stanton and tons of other cute photos. He wants to be an Instagram model, according to Uzzi's bio. Hopefully, Uzzi gets along with Stanton's poodle, Princess Poppy!

4. They met on Instagram. 


The pair met online, Stanton told Us Weekly. Jacobs "slid into her DMs" and it obviously worked!

“I wish we had a more exciting story," she said. "We were saying that we should just say we met at the dog park or something. …  I guess it’s pretty normal these days. It just is funny to say.”

Who says you can't find love on Insta?! It's 2018, grow up and slide into those DMs!

5. He's great with Stanton's kids.

Stanton has posted multiple photos of Bobby and her daughters, Kinsley and Charlie. The little ones are all smiles with Jacobs and he looks happy as can be holding their hands and laughing.

It's safe to assume the girls are fans of Bobby!

6. The couple appears to still be together.


Jacobs and Stanton must have worked things and resolved their issues. Stanton has posted a few photos on her Instagram that prove she and Jacobs are moving past her arrest and hanging out.

She shared a photo of their prior getaway as well as a picture of an ice cream date. Let's hope the love birds grow from the incident and keep drama to a minimum from now on.
