Emma, 22, was arrested (and quickly released) this past week after police responded to a domestic dispute between the actress and her 26-year-old boyfriend, American Horror Story actor Evan Peters. Prosecutors later dropped the charges.

"It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding," Emma's rep tells ET. "Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it."

The Montreal Police Department declined to release information about the incident that occurred in the couple's hotel room, but did confirm that they were called to Emma and Evan's room, briefly arresting one of the parties before ultimately dropping the charges.
