More bad news for Cynthia Bailey’s estranged husband Peter Thomas. According to court documents, Thomas was once arrested for battery in a fight with a female employee.
According to an Atlanta Police Department report obtained by P, Thomas â€œgrabbedâ€ and â€œpushedâ€ the accuser in the ladiesâ€™ locker room of his former hot spot, Uptown, on April 27, 2008.
â€œI noticed visible bruises to her left arm,â€ an officer wrote in the documents.
The responding officer claimed Thomas told him he had never pushed the woman, and was merely attempting to take a checkbook and the businessâ€™s money from her.
But the accuser, whom the site has chosen not to name for privacy reasons, shared a completely different story in an interview.
Around 2 a.m. on the night of the fight, the woman â€” a waitress at Upstairs during the time â€” claimed she finished her shift and headed to the locker room to relax and grab a cigarette.
â€œWhat are you doing?â€ she said he screamed.
When she confronted him about his â€œdisrespectfulâ€ tone, the waitress alleged that he called her his â€œslave,â€ ordered her to give him her shift earnings and attempted to grab her checkbook from her hands.
â€œHe grabbed the book and pushed me,â€ she said. â€œI hit a metal table and scraped my arm.â€
In retaliation, the waitress admitted she got up and began throwing glasses before leaving the restaurant and calling the police.
â€œHe has a very, very bad temper,â€ she added. â€œAnd heâ€™s super shady. Everyone in Atlanta knows that about him.â€
Three years later in 2011, Thomas was found not guilty of two counts of battery after a bench trial. (The case was delayed because the reality star failed to appear in court in June 2009. He was arrested and jailed six months later on a warrant following a routine traffic stop.)
