At the time of his arrest, Bryant claimed to be his younger brother, Brentt Leakes, whom The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum shared with her late husband, Gregg. His real identity was later confirmed, and he was hit with an additional charge of “giving a false name, address, or birthdate to a law enforcement officer."

When they ran Bryant's name in the system, officers saw that Leakes' son was "wanted for probation violation" in a separate case.

The ex-RHOA star recently spoke out about Bryant's arrest, revealing she's "numb" to the situation because he's "been struggling" with drugs for years.

"He needs rehabilitation," Leakes explained. "He needs a lot of counseling. Like many families out there, I have family members that are struggling with drugs and certain addictions. He has an addiction. He's been struggling with it for years. He's been in rehab for a couple of times and he still has come back out and relapsed."
