Mary Delgado arrested for battering Byron Velvick

Hours after she appeared on The Bachelor 11 reunion, Mary Delgado was arrested in Tampa.

The Pinellas County Sherrif’s Office report says Maribel Liliana Delgado was booked for “battery – strike or touch,” a misdemeanor, at 12:35 a.m. Wednesday. She was released that afternoon. Her mug shot isn’t very flattering.

The Bachelor 6 winner is engaged to Byron Velvick, and said on the reunion that they planned to get married this month; they are one of the show’s only two surviving couples.

Update: The victim of the assault was her fiance, Bachelor 6 star Byron Velvick. According to the “arrest affidavit, Delgado punched her fiancé … and cut his upper lip, causing it to bleed. The report states alcohol was a factor. The report states Delgado admitted to hitting Velvick,” according to Tampa’s ABC affiliate.
