“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Ariane Davis was arrested for attempted assault and harassment after allegedly getting into a fight with another woman inside a Manhattan hotel early Monday morning, according to police.
Davis, 44, allegedly squared up against a 33-year-old woman inside the Moxy Times Square at 4:55 a.m. in what her attorney described as a “domestic” dispute.
The woman had scratches on her neck and sustained injuries to her hands but refused medical attention at the scene, according to police and prosecutors.
Davis was taken into custody at the hotel and was arraigned at Manhattan criminal court on one count of attempted assault and one count of harassment.
She appeared in court in a black Balenciaga dress Monday evening.
The prosecutor, Stephan Millan, said that the socialite made a statement to officers who arrived at the scene indicating her own guilt and that the cops “observed scratches on the victim’s neck.”
He added that Davis and the victim have a “relationship together and live together” and requested a temporary order of protection, despite the victim not wanting one.
“I’ve spoken to the victim and she did state that she did not want a full temporary order of protection, that she is not in fear of her safety,” Millan said.
“However, given the relationship with the party, the fact that the defendant already confessed to hitting the complaining victim, that she did hit the complaining victim, the people are requesting a full temporary order of protection,” the prosecutor said.
It’s unclear if Davis, who is bisexual, and the victim are in a romantic relationship, but both the prosecutor and defense said they live together and said it was a “domestic issue.”
Judge Soma Syed issued the temporary order of protection and released Davis. Her next court date is July 26.
Following the arraignment hearing, Davis’ defense attorney Eric Sanders told The Post he believes the charges will be settled quickly.
“It’s an unfortunate incident to happen but hopefully it will be resolved by the next court date” he said.
Davis is known for her appearance as a supporting cast member on the first six seasons of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” due to her friendship with Mimi Faust, one of the series’ main protagonists.
The socialite is a self-professed “celebrity mixologist” originally from Mississippi, according to a fandom page for the reality series. She left the show after six seasons.
