Peter Thomas was one of the most popular male stars of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta. Now that he's been fired by the show, police are saying that he's turned to scamming.

Peter was arrested yesterday at Miami airport, after someone snitched on his whereabouts to authorities. Peter had a warrant out for his for scamming in Louisiana.

Here's what TMZ is reporting:

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Peter was busted Friday after getting off a plane at Miami International Airport. We're told he was taken into custody on a warrant from Louisiana for allegedly writing fake checks, and he's being held without bond. 

Peter is expected to be extradited to Louisiana where he will face the charges.

And Louisiana criminal laws are BRUTAL when it comes to check fraud. Under Louisiana law, a judge can sentence check scammers to as much as 10 years in prison.

On Thursday, Thomas shared an Instagram video of himself in Jamaica, writing, “Making deal with my people, BIG THINGS COMING.”

Thomas and Cynthia Bailey, 52, called it quits in 2016 after tying the knot on an episode of the Bravo franchise in 2011. The former couple’s divorce was finalized in 2017.

According to People Magazine, "Fans of the show even thought there was a chance the couple would reconcile as they took a trip to Hawaii together."

However, Bailey insisted “that ship has sailed.”

“I know it seemed like we just decided to go to Hawaii together, but I was invited by Kandi and he was invited by Todd. We had an amazing time together,” Bailey previously told PEOPLE of the 2017 trip.
