News sources are confirming that Emma Roberts was arrested July 7 in Montreal, Canada, after somebody called police about a fight in her hotel room.

Emma, the 22-year-old daughter of actor Eric Roberts and the niece of superstar Julia Roberts, was allegedly arrested for assaulting her boyfriend and American Horror Story co-star Evan Peters, 26.

TMZ reported Monday that Peters had a bloody nose and bite marks when law enforcement arrived, although the bite mark claims have since been disputed by other sources.

Roberts was released from jail shortly after the incident as her boyfriend chose not to press charges. 

The actors released a joint statement suggesting that they will not be separating over the fight.

"It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding," reps for the couple told US Weekly. "Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it."

The couple, pictured above during happier times this past May, have recieved noticably less criticism than other high-profile domestic assualts. Some have wondered if the gender reversal has caused them to recieve less bad press than infamous cases like singer Chris Brown's assault on his popstar ex-girlfriend Rihanna. What's your opinion?
