Peter Thomas Explains How Those ‘Bad Checks’ Got Him Arrested in Miami – WATCH

peter thomas (getty)

*If by chance you were wondering just why “RHOA” star Peter Thomas was jailed in Miami, now that he’s out, he’s setting the record straight.

In an Instagram video (below, with very low audio) captioned as “Clearing the Rumors,” Thomas spoke on his time in lockdown which was reportedly due to writing bad checks.

In the more than seven-minute long clip, Thomas, 58, informs that he was released from Miami-Dade County jail Wednesday night after being taken into custody on March 1.

He claims his arrest was caused by an incident in which he wrote a check for $4,000 to a talent agency to book a performer for his Club One night spot in Charlotte, but his “checking account was compromised” at the time.

“The bank shut it down,” he said. “That means somebody got my debit card number and was using it everywhere.”

The ex-husband of “RHOA” star Cynthia Bailey claimed that he never knew there was a warrant out for his arrest.

“Six days I spent in jail,” he said. “[The] ‘celebrity status’ I had made them put me around no one for six days. I don’t wish that on anyone, but I had a lot of time to think, and I had a lot of time to take medication because I’m claustrophobic.”

Here’s what Thomas’s attorney, Keith Doley, told E! News about the situation:

“It was an unfortunate misunderstanding. There was no intent on Mr. Thomas part to not pay. There was a misunderstanding about a performance that didn’t happen. It’s all been resolved.”

Thomas is known for appearing on “Real Housewives” with his ex-wife, Cynthia Bailey. The Bravo series documented some of his struggles running his nightlife businesses, including Bar One in Atlanta and Club One in Charlotte, North Carolina.

According to local news outlet WPLG, Thomas was in Miami Beach for the opening of a new nightclub.
