Former RHOA Star Peter Thomas Is Arrested at Miami Airport for Fraud

Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Peter Thomas spent the night in jail following his arrest on Friday night.

Peter, the ex-husband of current RHOA star Cynthia Bailey, was arrested on March 1 at the Miami International Airport.

According to WPLG Local 10, Peter, 58, was taken into custody on a warrant from Louisiana for allegedly writing bad checks.  However, his charges appear to be quite serious as he’s actually being accused of check fraud, over allegations he wrote counterfeit checks.

The timing of the arrest couldn’t be any worse as Peter, who owns the Sports One Bar in Charlotte, NC, was reportedly in town to work on the opening of his nightclub in Miami Beach.

Even worse, as of Saturday morning, he was still being held without bond, according to PEOPLE. Peter’s mugshot is below.

Peter appeared on the Real Housewives of Atlanta regularly for a number of years until his divorce from Cynthia was finalized in 2017. Since then, he has made occasional appearances on the show, mostly spending time with his former stepdaughter Noelle.

As most RHOA fans are aware, Cynthia has since moved on and is now in a serious relationship with FOX Sports broadcaster Mike Hill.]

UPDATE – In a statement released, following his arrest, Peter called the allegations were false. He added that he will be “acquitted from any wrongdoing.”
