The former politician has also been under investigation for sexual misconduct.

Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel has been arrested in Charleston, South Carolina. According to jail records, he’s been booked in the county jail.

The 56-year-old was booked on Tuesday morning, September 25, at 10:11 a.m. The charge is second degree assault and battery. It’s not known if this is related to the sexual misconduct allegations he faces that are currently being investigated.

Thomas quit Southern Charm last month. He tweeted, “I’m not doing the show anymore. In the contract they have the right to fictionalize your story. They took advantage of me. I decided I’ve got too much to lose and informed them I’m not coming back.”

He did not appear on the show’s end-of-season reunion, sending then-girlfriend Ashley Jacobs to defend him in his stead. She said she expected him to be cleared of the sexual assault allegations. Last month they broke up, though they’ve been spotted together since.

Thomas, a former politician, shares two children with cast member Kathryn Dennis.
