“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kenya Moore can’t seem to get her love life together. Either they are fake or they are criminals.
Case in point: Moore recently introduced Eugene Casciaro her new beau on Instagram as well as during her hair care launch in Atlanta.
But Moore, 44, may not be aware of the fact that her truck dealer lover has been arrested several times in the greater Atlanta area for violent behavior and making terroristic threats.
Casciaro, 39, was arrested and charged for simple assault and battery and making terroristic threats at a high-end Atlanta restaurant, terrifying an innocent couple and causing chaos in the eatery, according to radaronline.com.
Authorities, the report stated, were called to the sushi hot spot Geisha House on May 17, 2007, after being alerted to Casciaro’s disruptive behavior. According to police reports obtained by Radar, this is what went down:
Victim Grady Luckey, 34, told police that as he was eating dinner with his then-girlfriend, Casciaro “told Mr. Luckey that he was ‘going to f***ing kill him,’” the responding officer wrote in his incident report. “He also said that ‘Even if you two get married tomorrow, I’d still like to kill you…I’ll kill every f***ing person in here.’”
When Luckey asked him to stop spewing threats, the volatile Casciaro “then struck [him] in the back of his neck multiple times,” the officer added.
Luckey then held Casciaro down until security guards could detain him.
When cops spoke with the angry assailant, “he was being very uncooperative and had a strong odor of alcohol coming from his person,” the officer claimed in the papers. “[He] was arrested and charged accordingly.”
When contacted by Radar for comment, Luckey said he had never met Casciaro prior to the attack.
“He was at a table across from us, drunk and blabbering,” he tells Radar. “He was talking about how he was going to kill somebody, about how he was going to kill “that guy right there,” pointing at me.”
Luckey says he merely tried to diffuse the situation by claiming nobody was going to get hurt.
“I was eating a piece of sushi, and the next thing I know, I was being punched in the face!” he recalls. “He said, ‘You don’t know who I am! You don’t talk to me like that!’”
The entire restaurant was staring as waiters assisted the unsuspecting diner, he claims.
“My girlfriend was so upset,” Luckey says. “That was not on the agenda for the evening. I’m not the type to instigate fights.”
The charges against Casciaro were later dropped for unspecified reasons.
That incident alone could be easily swept under the carpet except for the fact that, according to LaLate, Casciaro was arrested in another violent incident in suburban Atlanta.
Casciaro was convicted of “three criminal misdemeanors of criminal obstruction of a law officer, simple battery, and criminal trespass. Casciaro arrested by Chamblee (Ga.) Police, booked into jail for one day,” the publication reports. “The case dragged for two more years. Finally Casciaro, listed as a Brookhaven, Ga resident (which is just north of Atlanta’s Buckhead district), entered a negotiated guilty plea for the three criminal counts. He was put on twelve months probation, given 100 hours of community service, and fines.”
