Las Vegas — Police say a Brazilian woman who featured on a TV show about people who receive U.S. immigration visas while planning a wedding has been arrested and accused of attacking her husband in Las Vegas.

Officer Jacinto Rivera said 32-year-old Larissa Dos Santos Lima was jailed early on Friday on a misdemeanour domestic battery charge at a home east of the Las Vegas Strip.

An attorney who represented Dos Santos Lima in the past didn't immediately respond to messages.

Rivera says Dos Santos Lima accused husband Colt Johnson of attacking her, but officers determined she was the primary aggressor.

Court records show Dos Santos Lima was arrested twice before in Las Vegas, in June and November, on a similar misdemeanour charge. Both cases were dismissed.

Dos Santos Lima and Johnson are featured on the TLC show 90 Day Fiancé.

According to E! Online Johnson has filed for divorce. The couple who tied the knot 7 months ago had a rocky relationship.

On Saturday he posted a statement on Instagram referring to Larissa as his soon to be ex-wife: "My sole mission since her arrival was to see that she was happy, taken care for and nurtured."

I don’t understand my soon to be ex wife. She comes to America with literally nothing. The suitcases she used for travel I provided for her. On her arrival I already had clothes waiting for her to wear and everything she needed to start a basic life in America. Over the course of months I continued to provide for her, gave her shelter, food, and supported her wants and dreams. When she wanted a dress or makeup I bought it for her. When she wanted to take ESL classes I found a class for her and drove her. When she wanted to go to a gym I took her to every gym in town and eventually she joined two gyms simultaneously. When she needed a doctor, lawyer, therapist I would always do what I could for her. My sole mission since her arrival was to see that she was happy, taken care for and nurtured. When she wanted to start her business I gave her a thousand dollars just to start. Every time she was in trouble, I was there.
