Tavarez was taken into custody on Nov. 11, 2019, and booked for “corporal injury to a spouse or cohabitant with a prior,” a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department previously told PEOPLE.

Two days before his arrest took place, the actor allegedly got physical with his girlfriend, causing her to hit her head, TMZ reported at the time. She later went to a hospital where she learned she suffered a concussion, the site reported.

He was later released on a $100,000 bond, according to Page Six. The outlet also reported that in 2018, Tavarez pleaded no contest to one count of spousal battery.

Tavarez also starred in the movie Saving Zoë in 2019, as well as Tyler Perry‘s series Meet the Browns in 2010 and Big Momma’s House 2 in 2006.
