NeNe Leakes just can’t seem to catch a break. The RHOA alum is now dealing with more drama in her life as her oldest son was arrested on July 3.
The 33-year-old son of NeNe Leakes was arrested on July 3 at a home in Lawrenceville, Ga, for felony possession of Fentanyl. Upon his arrest, Bryson was slapped with several changes, including “possession of a scheduled II controlled substance, violation of probation, loitering and giving a false name, address or birthdate.”
Bryson was arrested after allegedly “evading police and claiming he knew the people that lived at the residence, which was false.”
During the arrest, Bryson lied to police and gave them his younger brother Brentt Leakes‘ name. Brentt is the 24-year-old son of NeNe Leakes and her late husband, Gregg Leakes. He also gave police the address of his mother’s home that she sold a number of years ago.
Bryson was booked into Gwinnett County Jail, and his bail was set at $3700, per prison records. He was also later charged with violating his probation in another case.
NeNe Leakes has yet to comment on her oldest son’s latest brush with the law.
Over the years, Bryson has had many run-ins with the law. In 2011, Bryson was arrested for DUI. A year later, he was arrested for driving on a suspended license.
In 2015, Bryson was arrested at a McDonalds for giving police a fake name and address. He was allegedly part of a group planning to print counterfeit checks at the fast food joint.
Some of Bryson’s dalliances with the law were documented on the Real Housewives of Atlanta despite his attempts to stay out of the spotlight and off the hit Bravo series.
In 2012, Bryson’s arrest for stealing razors at Walmart was documented on season 5 of RHOA as the then 20-something wanted his mother to bail him out.
Instead of doing so, NeNe let Bryson sit in jail and think about his actions since it was the first time he had been arrested.
“He’s had a really easy life, so now I’m gonna show him what a hard life is,” NeNe said at the time. “He’s gonna stay in jail. I’m not getting him out, and he can figure it out from behind bars.”
Bryson has a court hearing scheduled on Wednesday.
