Unfortunately, Bryant is no stranger to a jail cell and his current mugshot can be added to his 4 prior arrests.
While his previous arrests were for minimal charges like traffic violations and/or probation violations, this time, Bryson’s alleged crimes are a bit more serious and include being involved in some sort of scheme to cash fraudulent payroll checks.
He’s got some serious ‘splainin’ to do about this sticky situation. 😯
Details about Bryson’s latest arrest below:
According to the AJC:
NeNe Leakes’ oldest son Bryson Bryant was arrested last week in Douglas, GA in connection with a check forgery case.
Bryant, 25 of Duluth, was not charged with check forgery. He had a fake check written to him, but he hadn’t cashed it yet so he couldn’t be charged for that, according to Coffee County investigator Robert Sprinkle. Bryant was arrested only because he provided the cops with a false name, a misdemeanor.
On Tuesday, June 16, investigators made two arrests involving fraudulent payroll checked passed throughout the state, with more than $35,000 tracked. The Douglas Police Department saw an individual at a local McDonald’s with a laptop and printer making fraudulent Taco Bell payroll checks. That man, Inginac Walter Theodore of Athens was arrested on five felony counts for printing fraudulent checks.
The police said Bryant was in the vehicle and lied about who he was. Bryant’s ID was found with Theodore.
Bryant was arrested and released on bond. Theodore remains at the Coffee County jail, Sprinkle said.
According to booking information, Bryant is married and works at Five Guys. RadarOnline said Bryant has a couple of children with Ashley Hill.
As stated earlier, Bryson has been charged with various minor infractions during his adult life.
Radaronline also reports:
In 2013, Bryant was arrested for DUI after a car accident, then for reckless driving later in the year in Johns Creek.
While on probation, Bryant failed to report to his probation officer multiple times, tested for cocaine and skipped mandatory DUI school. As a result, Radaronline said he spent three months last fall in prison. He was also ordered into rehab earlier this year.
Bryant appeared in a few episodes of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” in the early years of the show and his troubles would occasionally be referenced or alluded to.
The reality show is in pre-production for season eight.
No word yet on how Nene feels about her son’s current predicament, but it seems to me like Bryson should choose his friends a bit more carefully.
