Porsha Williams Turned Herself In To Police


U.S. reality TV star Porsha Williams, turned herself in to police on Wednesday, April 16 in Georgia. It happened after the warrant was issued for her arrest.

Allegedly, Porsha and her The Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Kenya Moore were involved in an on-set altercation in March 2014, which led Moore to file a police report.

Lawmakers issued a warrant for Porsha’s arrest on Wednesday, and she appeared at the Atlanta Police Department only hours later. She was charged with misdemeanor battery.

She also posted the $2,000 (£1,188) bail and was immediately released.

After the assault, Porsha’s representative told E!News,

“She is charged with one misdemeanor count of simple battery stemming from an incident that occurred during the taping of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion episode. Cast member Kenya Moore sought out the warrant and, although the claim is unfounded, Ms. Williams is fully cooperating with investigators and looks forward to clearing her name.”

And what was the assault? A source explained,

“Kenya had been pushing Porsha’s buttons and there was a lot of heated conversation back and forth between them.”

“Finally, Porsha stood up, which led Kenya to stand up. Porsha charged Kenya. There were a few moments of hair pulling, but it was broken up in a matter of seconds. No one dragged anyone across the floor. A producer, security and even Andy [Cohen] stepped in to quickly separate them. It was a joint effort. In the end, no one was hurt.”

The show is set to air in America on Sunday, April 20.
