It’s beginning to look as though 90 Day Fiance Season 2 couple Jason Hitch and Cassia Tavares may be giving Danielle and Mohamed a run for their money drama-wise! We broke the story earlier this month that the two are having difficulties and that Cassia has moved out of their house. It seems things have gotten worse before they got better because Jason was arrested Monday and charged with battery!
According to online records, Jason was booked at 2:51AM Monday morning and was released later that day at 4:00PM after posting a $500 bond. The online records also indicate that Jason is to have no contact with the victim, whom we assume is his wife, Cassia.
The Florida statute that Jason has been charged with violating looks to be a first degree misdemeanor, unless Jason has a previous battery conviction, in which case it is a third degree felony.
Jason hasn’t revealed anything about what happened, but he has tweeted about his arrest. Someone posted his booking photo and wrote “that’s not a very charming mugshot!” Jason responded: “I knew I should have smiled. I look like the dude from Chicago Officer Peterson.” (Jason is referencing Drew Peterson I assume.)
We have reached out to Jason for comment and will update if we get any more information.
