Amanda Stanton was arrested in Las Vegas and charged with domestic violence, PEOPLE confirms.

The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise alum was in Las Vegas, Nevada, over the weekend for a friend’s bachelorette party when the alleged incident occurred. At approximately 3:15 a.m. on Monday, police responded to a battery domestic violence call at a hotel located on the 3100 block of S. Las Vegas Blvd., according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

A physical altercation took place in a hotel room where it is alleged that the reality star battered her boyfriend, Bobby Jacobs, according to authorities.

Hotel security was notified, police were called and over the course of the investigation, it was found that there was probable cause to arrest Stanton on one count of battery domestic violence, according to police.

Stanton, 28, was then transported to Clark County Detention Center, where she was booked.

She was reportedly released on Monday, according to TMZ, which first reported the news.

In a statement obtained by PEOPLE, Stanton’s rep, Steve Honig, said, “Amanda is embarrassed and ashamed this happened and sincerely apologizes to hotel security and the Las Vegas Police Department. 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.”

The mother of two — she is mom to young daughters Kinsley and Charlie — first competed on Ben Higgins’ season 20 of The Bachelor before appearing on Bachelor in Paradise during the summer of 2016, when she got engaged to Josh Murray. PEOPLE confirmed in January 2017 that the two had called it quits.
