Jill Connors, of Bravo’s "Married to Medicine," was arrested earlier this month for family violence and cruelty to children, FOX411 has learned. She is set to appear in court today.
The charges stem from an Aug. 13 fight between Jill and her husband Dr. John Connors, during which he called the police. According to the police report, John states he found text messages on Jill’s phone that implied she was having an affair and he threatened to divorce her and take their children. He claims his wife then began punching him in the face and scratching his chest, arms and neck. The police report from the incident describes that John Connors had mild injuries, including a swollen lip and visible scratches.
John Connors maintained when he called 911 his wife grabbed a kitchen knife and began cutting her arm and chest and screaming "He`s cutting me!"
According to the police report, when she was interviewed at the scene, Jill Connors immediately said "I hit him. I started it, I know." However, the reality star claims her husband cut her with a knife, though the police report notes that when she was asked to provide details of the incident she replied, "It all happened so fast, and I don`t know how it happened. I do not know where the knife is."
Jill Connors was arrested and booked at the Alpharetta Jail on Aug. 14 and released on Aug. 15.
A rep for the city of Alpharetta, Ga., said Jill Connors was charged with cruelty to children because the couple’s two kids witnessed the violent fight.
“The family violence charge came from her striking her husband and [giving him visible injuries],” the rep explained.
Jill Connors was added to the "Married to Medicine" cast in its third season, which premiered on June 7 and is currently airing. She guest starred on the previous season of the show. Bravo did not immediately return FOX411's request for comment.
According to TMZ, Jill Connors filed for divorce on Aug. 19
