Marie Avgeropoulos, Star of The 100, Arrested for Domestic Violence
Marie Avgeropoulos has a last name that is difficult to pronounce.
But it’s easy to see the sort of trouble she may now be in.
The actress, who has been a regular on The CW’s The 100 since its premiere in 2014, was arrested in Los Angeles last week and charged with domestic violence against her boyfriend.
According to TMZ, who broke this news, a man called the police early on the morning of August 5 and claimed that he had been struck by his girlfriend during a verbal dispute.
The the cops arrived on the scene, the man had marks on his body and Avgeropoulos was taken into custody.
As you can see in the mug shot above, it appears as though Avgeropoulos reacted in tears to the incident.
She reportedly urged the police not to take her away once it became evident that an arrest was likely imminent.
An insider also told TMZ that Avgeropoulos was on a new medication and mixed it with wine at dinner prior to the couple’s alleged altercation.
This mixture “resulted in a bad reaction.”
This same boyfriend had called the police in the hopes that officers would “diffuse the situation rather than arrest her,” TMZ reports, revealing he also “begged cops not to take her away” and “even bailed her out.”
That may be true, of course.
But it may also still be true that Avgeropoulos broke the law.
The 32-year-old Canadian actress has yet to address the alleged incident via her social media accounts.
She did not attend the 2018 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, where The 100 was nominated for Choice Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Show.
Avgeropoulos was released on $ 50,000 bond.
The 100 chronicles the surviving population living on a space station, called the ARK, which sends a group of 100 delinquents down to earth.
These individuals set out to see if earth might still be inhabitable because supplies are running low on the ARK.
Avgeropoulos has also appeared on such other television programs as Cult, Human Target, Fringe, Supernatural and Eureka.
