Suspected Hollywood Hills burglar Alexis Neiers arrested on the set of her E! reality show

One of the high school students suspected of being the “Hollywood Hills Burglars”, the group that robbed Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Audrina Patridge, was arrested on the set of her future E! reality show.

E! News reports that “involvement in an E! reality project has potentially been jeopardized by her arrest,” while Alexis Neiers told E! that “I can’t wait for all of this to be cleared up. I’ve learned my lesson that I need to make some better friends and some better decisions as far as my friends go.”

After her arrest, E! said in a statement that “The Arlington family, including Alexis Neiers, are the subject of a pilot for E!. Shooting began several days ago and will continue for the next few weeks. We are concerned by recent events, awaiting further details and will be monitoring the situation closely.”
