Peter Thomas Has a Criminal Summons Issued For Simple Assault

Peter Thomas RHOA


Edited the title to clarify it’s a summons, not a warrant. This means he will not be arrested but summoned to appear in court to answer the assault charges. If he fails to appear or if the judge finds a reason to charge him, then he will/can be arrested.

I was just tweeting the other day that we were past due for someone on a housewives show to get arrested. I came THIS CLOSE to hosting a betting pool here on who would be next. Had I done that, and had you selected Peter Thomas you would have won bragging rights. Though he may not have been arrested yet, so there is still time for someone else to sneak in under the wire.

It looks like Peter got into a dust up with a customer at Sports Bar. Peter  (like me :) ) has always had a ton of rules for his customers and I could see him mixing it up with customers.

See below for an explanation of the charges.

RHOA Gregg Peter


CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) –  A member of the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ (RHOA) show is facing an assault charge after an alleged incident inside a bar that he owns in Charlotte.

According to court officials, a criminal summons has been issued for simple assault against Peter Thomas. Thomas is the husband of Cynthia Bailey and has been on the RHOA for five seasons. Thomas opened Sports One Bar, along the 500-block of North College Street, in 2014.

According to a police report, officers were called to the uptown Charlotte bar early Sunday morning around 1:25 a.m. A 45-year-old man told police he was assaulted in the bar. The man called WBTV and claimed Thomas assaulted him. (Because that is what you do when you are assaulted, you call the news station.)

According to the police report, officers consulted with an off-duty police officer and a witness to the alleged incident and determined no assault occurred. (In other words they ask the cop who is employed by Peter Thomas as his second job, whether Peter Thomas assaulted anyone.)

Monday, a Mecklenburg County judge reviewed the police report and issued a summons for Thomas’ arrest on simple assault. ( In other words the man claiming he was assaulted knew a judge.) As of Monday afternoon, that summons had not been served. (In other words, Peter has probably run back home to Cynthia.)

WBTV reached out to Sports One for comment, but has not heard back. (Cause he’s somewhere hiring an attorney to get him out before they lock him up.)

    My goodness! So much news lately. I hope Peter didn’t really assault anybody. Calling the TV station before the cops is a bit fishy.

    I am so happy that you are back!!!!! Hope you had a wonderful break but I missed you!!!! Now I can get all my Felons by Bravo updates and now that what I am reading is the truth!!

  3. Lisaj

    ? honestly that’s how I look. I’m shocked.

  4. Rose

    Say it isn’t so Pappa Smurf! Another possible felon by Bravo.

    Yay for this blog. My day keeps getting better. That cue ball head belongs in the pokey.

      Yeah nothing better than hoping a human being loses their freedom and access to the world over something we know nothing about.

    • WonkyTonk

      Yeah Zoemonster2 I was never much of a Poppa Smurf fan. I think the dude is a douche, and I can totally see him getting up in someone’s face. The victim calling the news is just ridiculous though. It wouldn’t surprise me to learn the guy showed up there with the intent to start something. Never the less you do the crime you do the time. Not that there’s going to be any time involved in something like this, but I wouldn’t shed a tear for Peter if there were.

    Can we all just hope he hires Phaedra

  7. Peter is a joke. It will be newsworthy when he pays his bills.

  8. Oh my lord is there no end to the misfortune with this guy?

  9. DarkThoughts

    I hope Cynthia does not bail him out. His side trick can put up cash up for her borrowed prick.

  10. Tmz says no charges will be filed.

      Marie, please read the commenting rules. In fact ask someone to help you comprehend them. That is not what the TMZ article says. It looks like TMZ only has part of the story. I’m going to go with the local news source. I don’t think you understood this post, or the TMZ one.

      • tamaratattles

        HEY Marie, where are you today now that TMZ is reporting the story again exactly like I did six days ago?

        I’ll wait.

    Hmmm…why would a victim of assault call the media? Is he trying to get on the show?

    I’m going to reserve judgement, and just wait to see how this plays out.

    • tamaratattles

      My theory is that the guy called the cops from the club. The cops came and talked to the off duty cop who works for Peter and they opted not to make an arrest. This pissed off the person claiming to have been assaulted and he called the TV station and said he was assaulted by Peter and the cops didn’t do anything in order to get publicity. The TV station called the county and asked for a police report and the judge got wind of it and reviewed the case and issued the summons since it was about to get some media coverage. This was a CYA move. It remains to be seen if the judge will go forward with pressing the charges.

    I am so clueless when it comes to this stuff.

    The rules for his bar are ridiculous. Peter is really showing his ass lately..I hope Cynthia doesn’t waste too much more time with him.

    • WonkyTonk

      You think maybe that was their plan? Set Peter up with a new bar and when it was successful he gets it and they divorce? Peter has always struck me as one of those guys who talks a good game, has a million and one ideas, and none of them ever seem to work out eventually for one reason or another usually related to him.

        I’ve never been married, so I could be wrong… but I would think that when your husband opens up another business in another state and moves there, things are not what they seem in the marriage. I’m also very interested in why Kordell seems to have bailed from Sports One.
