Why was she arrested?
Victoria had placed a few other groceries into her shopping cart and went to pay for those select items at self-checkout.
But she allegedly didn’t pay for any of the 25 plus products that were hidden in the reusable bag tucked in the baby seat portion of the cart.
Victoria was charged with petit theft and accepted a plea deal in August of that year
The Florida native attempted to exit the market but was stopped by the security guard present and detained until a police officer arrived on the scene.
Surveillance tapes from cameras throughout the store also captured the alleged theft.
How long was she in jail?
Victoria spent two days at Leon County Jail and was released after posting a $1,000 bail.
In August she was charged with petit theft and accepted a plea deal.
Victoria had to go back to jail for two days and was ordered to six months probation.
Victoria was ordered to attend theft school and have no contact with the Publix supermarket she was allegedly caught at
She also had to pay back hundreds of dollars in fees and was forced to attend theft school.
Additionally, she was ordered to have no further contact with the Publix grocery store she allegedly committed the crime at.
What happened to Victoria’s eye on the Bachelor?
As the date went on the girls were split into teams for an intense game of “capture the heart” with Matt which involved paint.
Victoria seemingly got into an argument with fellow contestant Marylynn Sienna, who also happens to be her roommate in the show and decided that she would spend the night sleeping on the couch instead.
Fans believe that Victoria contracted the stye — a red, painful lump near the edge of the eyelid that appears as a pimple — by sleeping on the couch, though she claims it was from the group date.
She addressed her fans on Instagram after a picture of Victoria’s eye went viral, ensuring that her eye condition was not from the date, writing: “Hahahaha the caption I’m crying. Nooo, I got a mf stye from the group date!”
