Kevin Hunter Jr. appeared at an arraignment hearing in a New Jersey courtroom where he plead not guilty to charges he assaulted his father, Kevin Hunter, during a brawl on May 21.
Kevin Jr., 18, was arrested after he punched Kevin Sr. during a fist fight outside a convenience store in West Orange, NJ.
According to a heavily redacted police report obtained by Page Six, the violence began when Kevin Jr. called his father a “bitch.” The report goes on to mention Kevin Jr. hit his dad in the face “with a closed fist,” which Kevin Sr. has denied.
Kevin Jr. wore a white button-down shirt and black slacks for his court appearance on Tuesday. The prosecutor asked for more time to review the case.
After the hearing, the prosecutor, Joseph Wenzel, told Page Six he would take into account Kevin Sr.’s desire not to press charges against his son.
“It does factor into my determination,” he said, “but at the end of the day I have to make the call about what’s in the nest interest of justice.”
“We expect it will be resolved favorably,” Kevin Jr.’s attorney told Page Six.
A source told Page Six that both Wendy Williams and Kevin Sr. were at the courthouse but they stayed outside the courtroom to avoid attention from the press.
Wendy filed for divorce from Kevin St. after he fathered a baby girl outside his marriage earlier this year.
Wendy, 54, has since moved on with 27-year-old Marc Tomblin.
