MIAMI — A reality TV personality and Charlotte club owner spent the night in a Miami jail after he was arrested on fraud charges.
Peter Thomas was arrested Friday at Miami International Airport on a fugitive warrant.
Miami-Dade Police said the warrant for Thomas is from Louisiana, where he is accused of writing fraudulent checks.
Thomas said the allegations were false.
Prosecutors dismissed an assault charge against Thomas last year.
A former employee of his Bar, Sports One in uptown Charlotte, filed a charge after she said he assaulted her in the club.
The prosecutor decided she didn't have enough evidence to prove the charge in court.
In addition to Sports One, Thomas owns a club in Charlotte, Club One.
