Amanda Soto is the pretty wife of Florida Congressman, Darren Soto –and who is said to have been arrested over the weekend.
Amanda’s husband Rep. Soto represents the 9th District for the state of Florida in the US House of Representative. He was elected to the House in 2016 and began his term in 2017, after nearly 10 years of collective service in both the Florida state House and Senate.

Reports say Mrs. Soto was arrested on a charge of disorderly intoxication. According to a statement made by her husband, she had been receiving treatment for depression and she stopped taking it. As a result, she drank too much alcohol and “reached an argumentative state with a family member, which led to arrest.” She was released from custody early Monday morning.
Additionally, the statement read, Amanda Soto regrets her actions and takes full responsibility for them. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Amanda got into a fight with non-other than her own mother. The police report says a security guard said the mother and daughter had become aggressive towards each other and at one point Amanda Soto was seen holding her mother by the straps of the backpack she was wearing in an attempt to keep her from walking away.
