Kailyn Lowry was arrested last month after allegedly punching ex-boyfriend Chris Lopez during an argument over their eldest son Lux, three.
The incident happened on September 4 during a custody exchange at Lopez’s house, The Sun reports, when Lowry hit Lopez ‘several times with a closed fist’.
Lowry was reportedly angry that Lopez had cut Lux’s long hair without asking her. Lopez called the police but allegedly didn’t hear back until September 25.

Lowry was subsequently arrested on September 26 in Deleware.
In court documents obtained by the newspaper, Lopez alleges that the Teen Mom 2 star ‘started attacking him and punching him several times on the head and upper torso because she did not want the child’s hair cut.’
Lopez told authorities that he didn’t fight back when Kailyn allegedly hit him and his sister acted as a witness to say that she ‘attempted to pull Kaliyn off’ him.
Lopez’s mom also confirmed the incident to authorities.
Lopez also reportedly told cops that there is an active protection from abuse order against him filed by Lowry.
When authorities called Lowry she denied the accusations. The reality star ‘stated she was upset because Christopher cut Lux’s hair. Kailyn stated that the dispute never became physical.’

The MTV star was taken into custody for offensive touching and later released on her own recognizance without bail and ordered to have no contact with Lopez, 26.
She has agreed to appear in court for her arraignment which is set for January 21 2021.
Lowry and Lopez also have son Creed who they welcomed in July.
Last month Kailyn reacted angrily, lashing out at Lopez on social media, when she found out he had cut Lux’s hair behind her back.
The reality star took to her Instagram Stories to vent about the new haircut, which left Lux’s long black locks uneven.

Kailyn shared the haircut in a before and after comparison of the back of her son’s head.
Lux’s hair, which previously reached down to his back, was still long but went just past his shoulders, with the ends chopped unevenly.
‘Parenting with a narcissist be like,’ she captioned the after photo, and she also labeled it a ‘Control tactic.’
Later, she filmed an Instagram Live session where she opened up about the haircut and tarred her ex.

She accused Lopez of physically abusing her and even choking her, which she has previously claimed, while accusing him of infidelities as well.
‘I’m just at a place where it’s like OK, you could f**k with me all you want. You can choke me, you can put your hands on me, you can burn my book on social media, you can cheat on me. Do whatever you want, right?’ she said.
‘But the second you do something to my child, I’m gonna come out of character because you’re using the child as a manipulation tool.’
Lopez recorded his own Instagram Live video in which he defended himself.
‘I’ve been wanting to cut my son’s hair, so the fact that I cut off a little bit of his edges, she should be happy I didn’t f**king scalp his a**, all right?’ he said. ‘Let’s be [on] some real s**t. That’s my son, so if I decide to make a decision on my son or anybody, I can.’

In the past, Lowry has defended Lux’s long locks.
‘I’ll cut it when he tells me he wants to cut it,’ she tweeted in March 2018 after one social media user said he looked like a girl. ‘But you can mind your business lil momma.’
In addition to Lux, Lowry is the mother to Isaac, 10, with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera and Lincoln, six , with ex-husband Javi Marroquin.
