Larissa Dos Santos Lima was arrested after sharing photos of herself with bloody cuts and scratches on her face and body, which police now believe were self-inflicted.
Reality star Larissa Dos Santos Lima was arrested late Thursday after allegedly getting into a physical altercation with her husband, Colt Johnson, in their Las Vegas home.
This was the second reported domestic abuse incident in two months, involving Lima of the TV show 90 Day Fiancé and her 33-year-old husband, Colt Johnson.
The 32-year-old reality star initially posted grisly photos showing a deep cut to her face and scratches all over her body, but police at the scene allegedly determined the injuries to be self-inflicted, according to TMZ.
The TLC star began sharing disturbing photos and videos to her Instagram on Thursday night in which she alleged that her husband John had called the police on her after an argument.

Larissa shared many of the photos and also texted with a 90 Day Fiancé blogger John Yates, who posted the photos and conversations to his own Instagram. The grisly pictures show a deep gash on Larissa’s cheek.
She also appears to have cuts on her fingers and lacerations all over her side and back.
The injuries allegedly were inflicted by her husband during a vicious fight between Lima and Colt Johnson, on Thursday night at their Las Vegas area home.

They also determined that most of the blood spatter was on her. Johnson would have been expected to have splatter on himself had he caused her injuries.
Johnson was not at the scene when police and an ambulance first arrived, according to The Blast.

Videos she posted show her alleged attacker standing in the bathroom doorway as she’s apparently naked and trying to take a shower.
In another video, Lima can be seen clothed but covered in shaving cream, which she claims he sprayed on her. Meanwhile Johnson can be heard repeatedly saying, ‘Larissa, stop. I’m tired.’
It’s unclear if, in addition to creating her own injuries, she may have also sprayed herself with the shaving cream. Johnson’s demeanor is fairly relaxed, if exasperated, as he speaks to her in the doorway.

A photo of Johnson holding his bloodied mouth was also sent to the 90 Day Fiancé blogger by Lima
‘This was sent to me by a close friend of Colt’s and in the spirit of fairness I’m posting it,’ he wrote – Johnson is seen with a ring of dried blood around his lips and what appears to be a cut below his front teeth.
The Yates also posted photos of an ambulance outside the couple’s home, and reposted a photo sent by Lima of herself receiving treatment from a paramedic at the scene.
Lima also claimed that Johnson Colt took her phone away after she attempted to call the police, then called them on her.
She was now safe at a friend’s house, she concluded.
However, law enforcement sources told TMZ that Lima herself made the domestic abuse call to police around 11 p.m. Thursday night, contradicting her account that her husband had stolen the phone and called police on her.
In addition to the gruesome photos, Yates shared texts between him and Lima in which he seemingly urged her to leave the house during the altercation.
Lima is in the US on a visa that allows her to stay 90 days with the intention of getting married. The couple finalized their marriage in June.
She expressed the fear that her new husband might try to have her deported.

Wild unsubstantiated allegations: During the conversation, Lima accuses her husband of bein a pedophile – No proof required
The conversation with Yates was rife with wild allegations, including one that claimed her husband was a pedophile, though she offered no evidence to back up the claim.
The Brazilian TV star had two previous arrests for domestic battery.
The charges were later dropped from the November arrest, though this newest incident may shine new light on the case.

Is this a setup? Yates appears to fuel the fears that she was being set up for deportation
So was this a scam to avoid possible deportation if the marriage winds up annulled?
In November, in response to an Instagram question from a fan, Lima said she had gone on 90 Day Fiancé for the money. She appeared to be joking at the time, though there may have been more truth to the statement than she let on at the time.
