‘Big Brother’ alum Christmas Abbott arrested for criminal mischief

Big Brother alum Christmas Abbott was arrested in Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday, November 6, on a felony charge of criminal mischief, according to online records from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

The 36-year-old turned herself in just before 2 p.m. ET. She was released on her own recognizance less than an hour later and never occupied a jail cell. It is unclear why she was charged with criminal mischief.

Abbott’s arrest came two days before her son Loyal Atticus’ one-month birthday. She shares the newborn with her ex-boyfriend, fellow fitness star Benjamin Bunn.

Happy Halloween! It’s all treats for me since I get to spend this day cuddling my lil pumpkin butt! 🎃🍼🧡 #firsthalloween #pumpkinbutt #loyalabbott #loyaltyislove #3weeksnew
She conquered her demons and wore her scars like wings. #breastcancerawareness #pink #conqueryourdemons #dontfeedthem #ownit
Sometimes the best gifts are disguised as burdens initially until you take a new perspective. Workouts are a gift you give yourself, not punishment. Good nutrition is loving your body, not depriving it. Meditation and self centering is internal housekeeping, not torture. If you change your perspective, you change your world. 🎈What’s your practice to stay balanced? #selfmagazine #badassmomma #relentlesslife #selfcare #gratitudeattitude #balancechallenge
Almost #4weekspostpartum and I’m so surprised at how much my body has changed since I gave birth! I’m not training yet, only breastfeeding and spending time with my sweet #loyalatticus 💙 I wanted to show the difference in #relaxed vs #flexed in my recovery. I was TINY before I got pregnant so my current size is reflective of how small I normally am. I love my new mommy curves especially since they help me provide for Loyal. I’ll get back to training soon but when I have had the proper amount of recovery time. I’ll do it slow and steady and not rush this process. This is just to show the difference in reality compared to posed. Don’t get caught up in other people’s hype...it won’t serve you well. Find ways to celebrate your own body for all the amazing things it does for you...and your little ones if you have them! And truth be told, I love my transforming body. It’s done some pretty amazing things and for that I have endless gratitude. 🙌 #hotasamutha #loveyourbody #confident #notperfect #fullpotential #mombod #ownit
Please meet Mr. Loyal Atticus Abbott! October 8, 2018 8 lbs 15 oz 22.5” long 11:28pm arrival Libra 💙 Thank you all for all of your thoughts and well wishes. It was a LONG and HARD labor that didn’t go as well as I hoped for but his health is beyond what I could ask for so I’ll gladly take that trade. He is strong as hell and super happy. He even was lifting his head looking around only an hour after birth! 😁 I’m already a very proud momma!!! I’d like to give more details about his birth but even more right now I want to spend time with him while recovering. It’s been a tough time but incredible time. #loyalatticus #nextgeneration #badassbaby #hearrived #hedidntfit #bestlife #badassmomma #welcometothisworld #tinybutmighty
Another incredible shoot from @marketstark 💙 I’m saving a few for a later posting but I am in love with all of these!!! The countdown is still ON! No baby yet but I can tell my body is prepping for it. My hips are a lot looser, I’ve had some sporadic cramps, my Braxton Hicks contractions are getting stronger (but not painful), and he’s such a wiggle worm!!!!!! I am so torn from wanting another week with him inside of me and wanting him to come out right now!!!! I’m #40weekspregnant tomorrow and I am hoping he makes a break for it!!!! Thank you @nadiasarita for the set! 😘 Gown by @sexymamamaternity #ifyoufeedhimhewillcome #sexymamamaternity #ilikered #someonerubmyfeet #crossfit #badassbaby #badassmomma

Current preggo status: •My arms feel like they’re being ripped off and executed every night. Don’t I get some sort of super hero cape for this? •EVERYTHING tastes like salt, even water. YUMMY!!!! 😝 •Waddling is my new sexy strut, I know it’s very, very sexy but contain yourself! •I have 5 outfits that fit. I’m embracing a fashion statement here. •Elephantiasis has taken over my “ankles” and I don’t know if they’ll ever return. I wish I could have told them how beautiful they were before. •Shaving? Nah. •No, I’m not carrying twins or triplets. I actually DID NOT know my belly is huge but thank you for pointing that out...again...and again...🤬 •Hanging out is a full marathon activity so don’t wake me if I pass out, you could lose and arm. •Underwear is being changed like a Nascar tire, 6-8x a day. Don’t ask. •I don’t know what anything below the top of my belly looks like. From my feet to belly button it’s like the Bermuda Triangle. Thanks to @marketstark for this awesome photo ❤️ & thank you to @sexymamamaternity for the 🔥 dress!! #blacksheep #badbassmomma #ithentookanap #pregnancywonders #imhabingfun #fingersarestillnumb
I’ve always had a thing for the color blue 💙 5 weeks and counting! I can’t get enough of his wiggles and rumbles. It’s so frequent now. I love it! I could just sit, feel him wiggle and read to him all day everyday. I’ve been nesting and finalizing ordering all the things I need for him. There’s so many cool things and crazy cute outfits. I’m sticking to the essentials because I keep receiving incredible gifts for him!! THANK YOU EVERYONE! My activity level has slowed down tremendously. I can 1-2 major tasks a day with tons of rest between. Nothing is fast anymore, even my eating. I know my body is preparing me for him to keep me up all night feeding and loving him but I’d really like a decent night of sleep. That went out the window at least three weeks ago and hasn’t returned. 😭 I’ve become calmer and happier over the last week anticipating his arrival. Even with the anxiety of life and bullshit I’m having to deal with, it all is nothing compared to my excitement to meet him, love him, and be his mother. It’s already the best job in the world! Due date: October 6 Name: Only momma knows Sleep: Few and far between Gratitude Level: Off the charts Craving: Nesting & cereal 🤷‍♀️ #35weekspregnant #badassmomma #badassbaby #buildingabadass #bestjobever

Bunn, 36, told Us Weekly exclusively in October that he and Abbott, who finished in third place on season 19 of Big Brother in 2017, are no longer “romantically involved, and haven’t been since December.”

“Unfortunately, I had very little contact with Christmas in the last few months of her pregnancy,” he told Us. “However, prior to that, we spent almost every day with each other for six to seven months straight. I went to every doctor’s appointment, accompanied her for travel, moved furniture and did all the things that two caring adults do with and for each other. … I was finally able to reach her a few days before [her] due date. I found out she was being induced through Instagram, and shortly thereafter received an email.”

Bunn traveled to the hospital to meet Loyal, but he missed the little boy’s arrival.

Us Weekly has reached out to Abbott and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office for comment.
