According to local jail records, Southern Charm cast member Thomas Ravenel was booked Tuesday morning into the Charleston County jail.

The former South Carolina state treasurer has been charged with second degree assault and battery, but no other details are available at this time.

Ravenel was booked at the Al Cannon Detention Center in North Charleston at 10:11 am.

UPDATE at 1:28 pm – The Charleston City Paper says Ravenel’s arrest is connected to a forcible rape report from May that named Ravenel as a suspect. The City Paper received that information directly from the Charleston Police Department.

Those allegations were made by woman who was formerly a nanny to his children. Ravenel had previously denied her claims.

Meanwhile, People says they were told by Bravo that Ravenel will not be returning as a Southern Charm cast member next season.

UPDATE at 2:50 pm – A judge set a $20,000 personal recognizance bond for Ravenel. He was ordered to surrender his passport, stay in the state, and avoid contact with the alleged victim, who was at the hearing.

According to Live 5 News, investigators have photographs of the victim’s injuries, which were “appropriately time-stamped.” You can read more here.

    LMDAO … Ravenel has finally heard the sound of CLINK, CLINK again. Now if only the pending investigation into the other changes could apply to this and we could all say DON’T DROP the SOAP…what an a**hole.
