41-year-old actress Royce Reed is facing a second legal battle this year after being charged in March for child negligence.
The ‘Basketball Wives’ actress over the weekend was pulled over by cops for a minor traffic violation. However, the actress got her gangster sh-ts on that day and tried to abscond but was caught.
Joyce Reed has been released on a $2,500 bail but is awaiting trial. Because this is a third-degree felony, Royce will face up to 5 years in prison if convicted. Meanwhile, Royce would have paid a scanty fine if she did not try escaping from the cops.
The actress was arrested back in March when she and her ex-husband Dwight Howard‘s 14-year-old kid Braylon Howard violated the court’s order to not come in contact with kids 2 years younger than him. Braylon disobeyed the court’s order and her mom faced penalties.
Media Take Out Reports;
Basketball Wives star Royce Reed was arrested on Friday near her home in Volusia County Florida, Media Take Out has learned.
What happened? Well, according to police Royce was pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. Police claim that they went behind her, and flashed their lights – but Royce refused to stop.
Officers claim that Royce made “evasive maneuvers” suggesting that she was trying to flee. They arrested the mother of one, and charged her with fleeing or attempting to elude an officer, a third degree felony. If convicted on the charges, the former Basketball Wives star faces up to five years in prison.
She was held and released on $2500 bail.
This is not the first time that Royce was in trouble with the law. As Media Take Out reported, Royce, 41, was charged with a third-degree felony of neglect of a child on March 10, by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Florida.
The former reality star’s charge stems from inappropriate conduct her son allegedly had with Reed’s boyfriend’s son, who is also a minor.
Because a judge had previously ruled that Royce’s son wasn’t allowed to be around kids two years younger than him without adult supervision, Royce is being held accountable with the child neglect charge.
Court documents detailed that the child had a history of inappropriate interactions with other minors and was working through his issues with professionals at TrueCore Behavioral Solutions for over half a year now.
