Greek Canadian actress Marie Avgeropoulos was arrested on August 5, on charges of felony domestic violence by the Glendale Police Department, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, it is being reported.
According to TMZ, Avgeropoulos, 32, was booked, but was released from jail on $50,000 bail several hours later.
The star of CW show ‘The 100′, was accused of being physically violent with a man who was identified as her boyfriend, but whose name has not been released.
“A man called police very early on August 5 from inside a car … claiming his girlfriend had hit him during a verbal argument. Sources say when police arrived, the man had marks on his body … so Marie was taken to jail,” TMZ reports.
Apparently sources close to the actress told TMZ that Avgeropoulos was “on new meds and mixed it (sic) with wine during dinner”. However, the type of medication she was allegedly on is not known.
“We’re told her boyfriend called police thinking they’d defuse the situation rather than arrest her — as they’re both Canadian and unfamiliar with what’ll get a person hauled off to jail in the U.S.,” TMZ reported.
Further details about the incident were unclear, but a source told TMZ that Avgeropoulos’ boyfriend doesn’t want to press charges.
Avgeropoulos has not made any statement or addressed the incident at all, but she has posted a couple of pictures on Instagram since the arrest.
