The son of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes was arrested on drug and failure to appear charges, CNN has learned.
The Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Department in Lawrenceville, Georgia, confirmed that Bryson Bryant bonded out of the Gwinnett Detention Center on Wednesday morning after having been booked there Sunday.
Bryant is the eldest of Leakes’ two sons and has appeared on the hit Bravo show. One of the episodes featured Leakes enrolling her son in Clark Atlanta University and a later episode focused on her concern that he was staying out too late in nightclubs.
Shortly after her son’s release, Leakes posted the following message on her Twitter account: ”My head is up & held high this morning because I KNOW the parent that i'am! U hate 4 yo kids 2 make mistakes! TOUGH LOVE this morning.”
