Emma Roberts and boyfriend Evan Peters have spoken out regarding a domestic violence incident which resulted in Roberts' arrest in Montreal last week.

"It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding," reps for the couple said in a joint statement to Access Hollywood. "Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it."

According to reports, police were called to respond to a fight in Roberts and Peters' hotel room.

When law enforcement officers arrived at the scene, they reportedly observed Peters suffering from a bloody nose and arrested Roberts.

Roberts was released mere hours later, and a source familiar with the investigation tells Access Peters chose not to press charges.
