ATLANTA (AP) - Porsha Williams of the Bravo network’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” is facing a charge of battery after fellow cast member Kenya Moore told police she was attacked during filming of the show.

Atlanta police have said they were called to the Biltmore Hotel on March 27, where Moore told an officer that Williams assaulted her.

Moore told the officer she was unable to fill out a statement at the time because she had to be on the set for filming, police said. An arrest warrant was issued later.

Williams surrendered Wednesday evening at the Fulton County Jail and was released that night, Fulton County sheriff’s spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan said. The charge against Williams is a misdemeanor.

Williams‘ attorney, Joe Habachy, said in an emailed statement that the battery claim against his client is unfounded and that Williams looks forward to clearing her name. Williams plans to contest the charge and file aggravated assault charges against Moore, Habachy said.

Officials from NBC Universal, the parent company of the Bravo network, declined to comment on the incident in an emailed statement.

Williams is the ex-wife of former NFL standout Kordell Stewart.
