Kristin Cavallari’s brother, Michael Cavallari, was arrested just days before he was reported missing.
According to an Orange County arrest record, Michael was arrested November 23 and released on bail November 25.
THE OC Sheriff’s Department told US Weekly that the 30-year-old was jailed for making criminal threats. An unnamed woman reported seeing Michael Cavallari outside of her apartment with a shotgun. The pair reportedly had an argument earlier that month, after which he was said to have knocked on her door for “several weeks.”
Deputies arrested Michael after he acknowledged having a loaded shotgun in the trunk of his car. Additional ammunition was also found at his apartment. The OC Sheriff’s Office said that Michael denied “doing anything or saying anything” to the woman.
Michael was last seen on November 27. His disappearance was discovered after his car was found abandoned a few miles off an Interstate 70 exit in Utah.
Kristin Cavallari has posted her thanks of support to those sending well wishes, writing on Instagram-along with a photo of her and Michael together from when they were kids, “I appreciate all the concern, thoughts, and prayers that have been extended to me and my family. We remain hopeful and I will share any news that we receive. I have such gratitude for all those that have shared their support.”
