Remember Kenya Moore’s Matt Barnes? Kenya told us years ago that this guy had some issues. Now it appears that the former RHOA star has been arrested for assault and trespassing in Arizona!
The former ‘Real Housewives’ star was booked Saturday in Pinal County for trespassing, plus 3 separate charges — aggravated assault, theft and threatening/intimidating with damage to property — which stem from an arrest warrant issued in Maricopa County.
Matt’s bail was set at $3,250, but no one’s paid it — he’s still in custody, and has a hearing this week to face the charges.
As for how all this got started, court docs show the initial incident allegedly went down back in April — but, apparently, Matt never showed up in court to deal with it. He got nabbed for trespassing Saturday, which revealed the outstanding warrant.
12:10 PM PT — TMZ got a hold of Matt’s arrest report, and it sounds like he allegedly got physical with his current girlfriend. According to the document, the woman, Valerie Bell, claims Matt punched her in the face at a Denny’s parking lot in the early hours of Saturday morning — this in the presence of a second woman, who says she witnessed it go down.
The witness also told cops that Matt got super close to her, snatched her cigarettes — including one in her mouth — and tried chucking them on the roof.
When officers arrived, they say Matt had already left — but Valerie called cops a few hours later in Maricopa to say he had circled back to her home, and the police eventually found and arrested him. Upon arrest, cops say they discovered a warrant for the other April incident. He was arrested without incident, per the report.
Sounds like what we saw on RHOA right?
Kenya dodged a MISSILE!
