Emma Roberts and her boyfriend Evan Peters are trying to "move past" a violent fight in a Montreal hotel room earlier this month that led to the actress' arrest.

"It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding," according to a joint statement from the couple's reps. "Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it."

A spokesman for the Montreal police told ABCNews.com that police were called to a hotel in Montreal's historic city center around 2 a.m. on July 7 to intervene in an argument.

"One person was arrested but the charges were dropped at the other party's request," the spokesman said.

A police source told the New York Daily News that both people had light injuries.

Roberts, 22, is the niece of actress Julia Roberts and daughter of actor Eric Roberts. She has been dating Peters, 26, her "American Horror Story" co-star, since early 2012.
