Porsha Williams Arrest: ‘RHOA’ Star Allegedly Drove 23 Miles Over Limit

Reality star Porsha Williams was arrested on Monday in Atlanta.

Hollywood Life reported that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star was busted for allegedly speeding as well as driving on a suspended license.

According to TMZ, Porsha Williams was pulled over for driving 78 mph in a 55 mph zone.

For this type of offense, the normal procedure is to issue a ticket without retaining the driver. However, Porsha Williams was booked because the police discovered she was driving on a suspended license.

Franka Young, a representative of the Department of Public Safety public information office, confirmed the report to Hollywood Life in an official statement.

“A trooper made a traffic stop for speeding. The driver, Porsha Dyanne Williams, age 33 from Duluth, was charged with speeding (78 in a 55 mph zone) and driving with a suspended licensed for failure to appear. She was transported to the Atlanta City Jail.”

After she had posted $1,726 bond, Porsha was released from custody.

This was not the first time that the 33-year-old reality starlet was arrested in 2014. Williams was also arrested back in April after attacking actress Kenya Moore, her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star, during a taping of the show’s reunion after the sixth season.

After that attack, Porsha Williams was demoted from a series regular to a part-time cast member on the Real Housewives of Atlanta for the seventh season. However, according to an inside source, Hollywood Life reported that the demotion had nothing to do with Porsha attacking Kenya Moore. On the contrary, her demotion was reportedly due to a lack of storyline and access.

Porsha Williams issued an official statement to Us Weekly shortly after the news about her demotion started circulating earlier this year.

“After a long season of filming, and giving my all, I was blindsided by the announcement from the network that I was demoted from ‘Housewife Status,’ but would remain on the show in a ‘Friend’ capacity. Unfortunately, I can only be PORSHA, and portraying anything else would not be genuine nor honest.”

Within the same statement, Porsha Williams made sure that she let her fans and critics know that she was not cutting ties with the show and the rest of the cast.

“This is not an easy time for me right now… But it’s not goodbye; you will see me on the show throughout the season, sharing and bonding with the other women, and I promise to stay connected with my fans as I start an exciting new time in my life.”

However, an inside source expressed to Us Weekly that Porsha Williams was not blindsided by her demotion because the changes to her role occurred gradually over time.
