Her boyfriend called 911 from inside a car on August 5, claiming that she had hit him during an argument.

Marie Avgeropoulos, who plays Octavia Blake on The CW'sThe 100series, was arrested for felony domestic violence against her boyfriend last week, according toE! News.

Her boyfriend called 911 from inside a car on August 5, claiming that she had hit him during an argument. TMZ reported that the man had marks on his body as a result of the hit, and Avgeropoulos was subsequently arrested and taken to jail.
A source close to the actress said that Avgeropoulos was on a new medication at the time of the argument and, when mixed with the wine she had at dinner, caused a bad reaction. The source said that Avgeropoulos' boyfriend expected the police to "diffuse the situation" rather than arrest her and paid her bail with a $50,000 bond. He has also declined to press charges.

The Canadian actress has not yet addressed the incident, though she did promote the season five finale of The 100on her social media after she was released. She did not attend the recent Teen Choice Awards, whereThe 100was nominated for Choice Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Show. The post-apocalyptic drama series follows a group of people who are sent back to Earth after a devastating nuclear event to determine whether the planet is still habitable.
