Mia, a 29-year-old airline recruiter, and Tristan, a 29-year-old former collegiate and semi-pro basketball player who recently started a tutoring business, tied the knot on Season 7 of Married at First Sightafter just learning each other's names at the altar.
The couple's romance got off to a good start, but when getting ready to travel to Cancun, Mexico for their honeymoon, Mia was pulled away by authorities for questioning and subsequently spent two days in custody until she could reunite with her concerned and overwhelmed husband.
While Mia was gone, Tristan obtained a copy of an arrest warrant that had been issued in early February for her arrest.
Jared Evans, an alleged ex-boyfriend, reportedly claimed Mia had stalked him on multiple occasions in the 13 months that followed their December 2016 break-up and also made an unauthorized purchase of an Apple iPhone on his credit card a year after their split.
"My car was stolen with all of my information and stuff in it, so the police say it is identity theft and that whoever stole my car also used my information to access whatever other charges they did. [Police] didn't tell me everything since it ended up not being me," Mia told the cameras.
Mia also called the alarming and unflattering allegations against her in her arrest warrant "100 percent false," blaming the situation on "a complete mistake of identity."
And when Tristan asked Mia whether she knew the man who had filed the stalking claims, Mia replied, "That name doesn't even ring a bell," only to change her story seconds later by telling her new husband, "I mean, I know of him... through just mutual friends. It's a small town."

However, Tristan and the Married at First Sight experts chose to believe Mia given all charges had been dropped against her.
According to the preview for the next Married at First Sight episode, Mia apparently subsequently told Tristan additional details about the incident off-camera, causing him to realize his wife had not previously been honest with him.
