Porsha gives her side of the story: says her grandfather is a cancer patient

In her statement to Dish Nation, the reality star made known that she was driving at such high speeds because her grandfather was very sick and in the hospital, and she was on her way to meet him before being stopped by the police.She admitted that it was wrong of her to drive at such high speedsand apologized for her reckless behavior,whichcould have endangered people’s lives. She further said, “I tried to explain the situation to the officer and show him that all my paperwork was in order, but he refused…”

This is not her first arrest; the star was slapped with battery charges in April

On the sixteenth of April, Williams was arrested on charges of physical assault. She had got into a physical altercation with one of her co-stars, Kenya Moore while filming the “Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion.” Following the incident, Williams surrendered herself to the Fulton County police department where she turned the simple police procedure of getting a mug shot into a sophisticated high profile photo shoot, with her hair neatly styled and face beautifully made up.It is probably due to her illustrious past that most people are not inclined to believe her ‘my grandfather is sick’ story.
