UPDATE: TMZ reports NeNe Leakes’ son turns himself in for outstanding warrant

“Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member NeNe Leakes in a statement last month said she’d deal some “tough love” on her son Bryson Bryant (left, with last month’s mug shot) for getting caught and arrested for a minor pot possession.

TMZ initially reported today that Bryant was arrested a second time in a month, this time for an illegal weapons possession. But at about 1 p.m., they corrected the item, saying he actually had just turned himself in based on an outstanding warrant related to an additional charge related to an initial March 7 pot possession charge. Gwinnett County fed TMZ the wrong information at first. The actual news wasn’t all that newsy in the end.

TMZ does not state what the additional charge is. I’ve left a message with the PIOs at Gwinnett County police to see if they can clarify the situation.

According to the docket, he entered Tuesday afternoon at 1:58 p.m. and left at 3:35 a.m. this morning. He is out on a $5,700 bond.

Here is his latest mugshot, courtesy of www.gwinnettmugs.com:

The third season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” has just started taping, with an expected return on air in the fall. He has shown up a couple of times on the show, first going to college, then dropping out and aspiring to be a party promoter. Mediatakeout says model Cynthia Bailey may be joining attorney Phaedra Parks as a new housewife and that this certainly means a couple of the other housewives will be “written off” the show.
