Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Peter Thomas set to be released from jail after paying $4K debt in bad check case
Peter Thomas is expected to be released from custody in Florida in the wake of his arrest last week for bouncing a $4,000 check.
The 58-year-old reality star on Friday was arrested in connection with writing fraudulent checks after he deboarded a plane at Miami International Airport, and was subsequently held without bond at a Miami facility.
‘This appears to have been a very big misunderstanding on several people’s part,’ his lawyer Keith A. Doley told TMZ, adding that ‘It was not a malicious intent on Mr. Thomas’ end.’
The Real Housewives of Atlanta personality, who was formerly married to Cynthia Bailey, had a fugitive warrant in Louisiana over the check; he’s since made good on the $4,000 debt through Doley, officials with St. John the Baptist Parish District Attorney’s Office told TMZ Wednesday.
With the financial dispute settled, the district attorney was set to inform the Sheriff’s Office they are dropping the case, paving the way for Thomas’s release, according to the outlet.- Source
