"Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" star Tim Norman has been charged with assault after he allegedly punched a former employee and the police investigation involved questioning his ex-girlfriend, "Basketball Wives" star Jennifer Williams.
On April 19, Norman was charged with misdemeanor assault by the District Attorney of Harris County, Texas. The police claim that Norman punched a guy in the face named Horace Hodges, who was a chef at Sweetie Pie’s.
Hodges claimed to have been talking to Norman about paychecks for the other employees, which allegedly escalated to the point where Norman became angry and punched him in the left eye.
Police spoke to Norman who claimed he “knew of the incident, but did not see what happen.”
Authorities then called Williams, who was at the restaurant on the day in question. She told police she did not see the assault, but Norman told her he punched Hodges minutes after Hodges left the scene.
Hodges told cops he wanted to pursue charges and the District Attorney’s Office agreed to charge Norman over the incident. He was not arrested on the charge and a hearing has yet to be set.
"Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" airs on Oprah’s network and the series finale is scheduled for June 9.
