Peter Thomas is a free man after he was allegedly put in jail for writing bad checks in Louisiana as soon as his flight touched down at Miami International Airport. The ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ alum released an explanatory video Friday morning.
Social media was shaken when it was revealed that Thomas was behind bars.
Not long after the news broke, Peter’s rep released a statement from the reality star that read: “I understand the seriousness of the allegations that have been filed against me, however the allegations are false. I do have faith in the judicial process and have no doubt that I will be acquitted from any wrongdoing. While I can offer no further information about this incident, I do confirm that my attorney is handling this matter expeditiously.”
Now that the bar owner has made it home safely, he made it a point to clear his name.
He explained that he booked a performer for his venue and unfortunate for him his bank account was compromised at the time. Someone got a hold of his debit card and spent his money ‘everywhere.’
Peter ended up facing the consequences when he was locked up for six days.
“[The] ‘celebrity status’ I had made them put me around no one for six days. I don’t wish that on anyone, but I had a lot of time to think, and I had a lot of time to take medication because I’m claustrophobic,” he told his followers.
This comes after his lawyer explained that his client had no part in any check fraud.
Keith Doley told E! News: “It was an unfortunate misunderstanding. There was no intent on Mr. Thomas part to not pay. There was a misunderstanding about a performance that didn’t happen. It’s all been resolved.”
It’s great to see that Peter was able to prove his innocence.
