‘Shahs of Sunset’ star Mike Shouhed charged with domestic violence

“Shahs of Sunset” star Mike Shouhed was slapped with 14 criminal charges including domestic violence.

Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer charged Shouhed with various misdemeanors such as battery and unlawfully attempting to dissuade a witness from making a report, legal documents obtained by Page Six show.

The reality star is also facing weapons charges, including criminal storage of a loaded firearm and possession of an assault weapon.

The charges stem from his March 27 arrest for “intimate partner violence with injury,” Page Six exclusively reported at the time.

It was unclear if the victim was Shouhed’s fiancée, Paulina Ben-Cohen, though the documents state that the victim was a 31-year-old female.

Ben-Cohen turned 32 in June.

The Bravolebrity was booked around 1:05 am local time on March 28, Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department court records showed.

Shouhed, 43, was charged with corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant, which is a felony, per the sheriff’s department.

About a week after Shouhed’s legal troubles began, Bravo canceled “Shahs of Sunset” after nine seasons, with sources telling us that it became “too expensive to make,” while a Ryan Seacrest Productions source claimed the show simply “ran its course.”

Without a reality series to air their drama on, Ben-Cohen addressed her fiancé’s domestic violence arrest through her attorney.

The couple are still together.

“We are working with the authorities to seek a just and fair outcome to this sad situation,” attorney Josh Ritter told us in April. “The family appreciates your space and respect for their privacy during this time.”

The pair, who have been an item since 2019, are still together and even took a trip to Mexico after Shouhed’s altercation. They stayed at the Garza Blanca Resort & Spa, but sources at the hotel told TMZ at the time that Shouhed and Ben-Cohen barely spoke and did not engage in much PDA.
