“90 Day Fiancé” star Ben Rathbun was reportedly arrested in Michigan on Tuesday for a probation violation.

According to TMZ, Rathbun’s arrest stems from his 2020 arrest for OWAI — operating while ability-impaired — for which he was sentenced to 18 months of probation. 

The 52-year-old was reportedly scheduled for a probation violation hearing in February. But when he did not appear, the judge issued a bench warrant that ultimately led to his recent arrest. 

Rathbun’s bond has been set for $10,000, per TMZ. His next court hearing is scheduled for March 21.

Rathbun stars on the current season of “90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days.” The show has followed his relationship with 22-year-old Mahogany Roca from Peru. 

Despite concerns from Rathbun’s loved ones that Roca was catfishing him with heavily filtered photos, she ended up being a real person — even if she didn’t look like her social media pics — and the two decided to pursue a romance. 

Though Rathbun caught Roca in several lies, including one about her age, the young South American has also stated that her beau was different than she expected him to be. 

Rathbun isn’t the only “90 Day Fiancé” who has been cuffed. Other series alums who have been taken into custody included Geoffrey Paschel, Molly Hopkins, Paul Staehle, Danielle Jbali, Jorge Nava, Lisa Hamme, Tim Clarkson and Larissa Lima. 

TLC did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
