Arrest Warrant Issued After Reality Star Skips Out On Prison Sentence

An arrest warrant was reportedly issued for a Real Housewives cast member after he skipped out on an eight-year prison sentence.

According to Access Atlanta, Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Apollo Nida was convicted of money laundering and check fraud this summer and was sentenced to an eight-year prison sentence.

Instead of turning himself in he went home to confront his wife Phaedra Parks, to berate her for changing the locks and failing to deposit money to his prison bank account.

A source tells Us Weekly, “It was the most bizarre thing. Everyone thought he was already at jail this morning. He drove himself to jail and was supposed to be there by noon. So Bravo came over to her house to start filming her coming home and all that stuff. The whole Bravo crew saw it – it’s all on tape. Everyone was shocked.”

Parks’ husband verbally attacked her from their driveway, shouting, “You didn’t come to my hearing!”

Nida — who previously served six years in prison for auto loan fraud — was “running around the house like a lunatic for about 20 minutes. He was psychotic, not even making sense.” [TMZ]

Nida was sentenced this summer after pleading guilty to creating a fake collections company as a front for an identity theft scheme he created. According to reports, he used victim’s information to secure auto loans, and stealing retirement checks.
