Page Six, who first broke the news, reported of his “intimate partner violence with injury” arrest and also noted of a slew of cryptic posts on Mike’s since-deleted Instagram page. “Your life is your responsibility. Your success is your responsibility,” he reportedly wrote on one of his Instagram stories. “Your failure is your responsibility. Your reaction is your responsibility. Your behavior is your responsibility.”

Mike also shared a now-deleted video of him dancing in his car to the popular Spanish song by Joe Arroyo called “Rebelion,” whose lyrics state, “No le pegué a la negra,” which translates in English to “don’t hit the black woman.”

Although it has not yet been reported who was the victim of the alleged assault, Mike and his fiancée, Paulina Ben-Cohen, were likely living together, as Mike announced their engagement last August during the Shahs of Sunset ninth season reunion. “I actually asked her son his permission to marry his mommy, and I gave him the ring,” he noted during the taping. “We were in Hawaii, and I planned with the concierge where the most beautiful part of the beach was gonna be.”
