TMZ is reporting that Lee Najjar, Kim Zolciak’s former boyfriend who was mentioned many times in The Real Housewives of Atlanta, has been arrested for failing to show up for a court hearing in July.
Najjar, who was known only as “Big Poppa” and never shown on-camera (due to the fact that he was in a marriage the time) during episodes of Real Housewives, was taken into custody by the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday, November 6.
On November 7, 2012, Najjar was transferred to the Gwinnett County Sherriff’s department. He has since been released from custody, TMZ notes.
According to the popular celebrity gossip site, Najjar had failed to appear in court after he neglected to maintain a storm water system at one of his homes; he’s already been charged a $75,000 fine for violating an ordinance and blew off a July 5 court date.
Local Atlanta-based Straight From the A blog also reports that Najjar has allegedly been “avoiding several banks seeking to recover their assets.”
Thirty-four-year-old Zolciak, who along with her husband Troy Biermann welcomed her second son into the world back in August, has yet to comment on Lee Najjar’s arrest.
