Christine Quinn’s husband Christian Richard was arrested hours after being taken into custody for alleged domestic violence.

Richard, 44, was arrested on Wednesday, March 20, for violating the restraining order that was obtained one day prior. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told Daily Mail on Thursday, March 21 that Richard had returned to his home hours after being arrested for assault with a deadly weapon.

Richard posted bond of $30,000 and was released later that day.

A police car was seen pulling up to Quinn’s Hollywood Hills property on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, the police were seen walking around Quinn’s home.

A representative for the LAPD told Page Six at the time that they were conducting a “building search,” which is usually done to determine whether there is an active threat on the scene.

The couple’s house was visited twice after several hours after Us Weekly confirmed on Wednesday that Richard was taken into custody while wearing his bathrobe.


“The suspect threw a bag containing a glass bottle at the victim, missed the victim but hit the victim’s child, causing injury,” the police told Page Six. 

Neither Richard nor Quinn have addressed the alleged incident.

The couple tied the knot in December 2019 following a whirlwind romance.

The former Selling Sunset cast member met Richard through mutual friend, which lead them to dating.

“[My friend was] like, ‘Also, he’s looking for a house.’ And I was like: double bonus,” Quinn recalled to Bustle in May 2020. “Him and I had an amazing steak dinner and got to know each other, and we just hit it off right away. He’s everything that I ever wanted.”

he added at the time: “He’s the opposite of me in every way because I love to put myself out there. I love to be fabulous. He doesn’t care about dressing up or looking good. He doesn’t care about any of that stuff. He only cares about his work and traveling. Which I care about as well.”


Quinn also surprised Netflix viewers when she announced her exit from the Oppenheim Group real estate firm — and from Selling Sunset.

“It was my decision to leave,” Quinn exclusively told Us in May 2022. “My husband and I had been working on this company for a year and a half. I love the show. The show is, like, my No. 1 [and] everyone knows that. But we just have to get creative now because I don’t work for the Oppenheim Group. … Maybe it’s a battle of the brokerages.”

Quinn and Richard subsequently opened their own brokerage, RealOpen, which accepts bitcoin as payment. At the time, Quinn hinted that the duo were looking to relocate from Los Angeles.

“Our dream has always been to live in France, and specifically Paris,” she told Forbes in November 2022. “We’re looking for a classic Parisian, Haussmann-style building, ideally with modern updates to the interior. We enjoy a well-lit living environment as we’ve become accustomed to in Los Angeles.”
