Survivor alum Kat Edorsson was arrested on Saturday and booked on a battery charge.

Officers responded to a call at 1:30 a.m. Saturday morning at an apartment complex and were told by security that Edorsson and her boyfriend were arguing in the lobby, according to TheWrap.

Edorsson allegedly hit her boyfriend “in the left side of the face.” The boyfriend “did not retaliate in any way,” the report notes.

The boyfriend did not want Edorsson to go to jail but according to the Orlando Police Department, if the primary aggressor can be determined, it isn’t necessary for the other person to press charges under Florida law, and a witness had identified Edorsson as the primary aggressor.

Edorsson faces a dating violence battery charge. She appeared on Survivor Seasons 24 and 27.
