Yesterday news broke that Nene Leakes eldest son, Bryson Rashard Bryant, spent 90 days in jail and six weeks in rehab at the end of 2014. I have some sort of alien in my belly punching me from my insides in my belly and just could not be bothered to make sense of all of the varied stories on what happened. Today, I finally read the court documents.
First, let’s review the timeline of KNOWN arrests of Bryson Rashard Bryant
March 2010 booked on a pot charge. Arrest 3 days later for failure to appear. (Age 20)
July 2011 shoplifting razors from Wal*Mart and probation violation. (Age 21)
June 2012 arrested for driving on a suspended license. (Age 22)
July 2012 arrested for probation violation.
June 2013 involved in an accident where he flipped his vehicle at 4 am. Was given a Breathalyzer and blew a .048 which is well below the legal limit of .08 yet the officers felt he appeared to be impaired by something. According to the police reports published by ROL, Bryant took out two utility poles that were snapped in half. I presumed they were phone poles, but they were metal power line poles! Bryant said her wrecked because of the darkness.
The officer did not give the Breathalyzer until he was in the ER. The officer informed him at the hospital that he was being arrested for DUI-Less Safe, Reckless Driving, Failure to Maintain a Lane, Duty to Report Striking a Fixed Object, and Too Fast For Conditions.
The Dodge Charger was registered to Gregg. It was totaled.
July 15, 2013 was changed to September, 2013, then December 14, 2013. Bryant took a plea and was sentenced to one year probation. That must have cost someone a bundle.
May 13, 2013 Probation was revoked. Bryant did not comply with terms of the plea deal including checking in with his PO as required, failure to pay any of the fines and court fees (around$1,200), did not go to DUI school, and oh yeah tested positive for cocaine and blew off a bunch of other drug tests.
February 2014 Apparently an attorney was hired and he was given ANOTHER chance to comply with conditions of probation. He was given 30 days of house arrest. But he didn’t comply with the terms then either.
August 2014 arrested once again for probation violation. Three counts of failure to appear released on $2, 600 bond.
September 4 2014 began 90 jail term with a November 25, 1013 release date. (Fun fact, it looks like he could have paid a fine instead of doing the time, but didn’t have the money.) He was allowed Thanksgiving it seems and required to surrender on November 30, 2014 to a rehab facility near Athens, GA for no less than six weeks.
Entered rehab in late November, went to rehab for six weeks. He went to Penfield Christian Rehab in Union City. There website expired in January. Out of rehab late December 2014. Just in time to go to NYC to ring in the New Year with his mommy.
