Emma Roberts Arrested for Domestic Violence


Say it ain't so. Emma Roberts, your favorite celebrity niece, has been arrested for physically abusing her boyfriend, American Horror Story’s Evan Peters.

The incident occurred in a Montreal hotel room on July 7. An anonymous source claims that someone called the cops to report a fight going on in the room Emma and Evan were sharing. When the police arrived, they found Evan with a bloody nose and, allegedly, a bite mark.

Those obvious injuries were enough evidence for Emma to be taken into police custody immediately for committing acts of domestic violence. She was released hours later because Evan chose not to press charges.

It's a grim reminder that men experience domestic violence, too, and every report of abuse should be taken seriously - even if it's hard to imagine the accused doing anything that Nancy Drew or Aquamarine wouldn't do.

If you or someone you love is involved in an abusive relationship, contact the  U.S. National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233, or the RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) Hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE. You can also visit thehotline.org for more information.
