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.
Peter Thomas Accused of Assault
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.)
