Wendy Williams’ son, Kevin Hunter Jr., was arrested after getting physical with his father, Kevin Hunter.

A spokeswoman for the Ethics County Prosecutor’s Office in New Jersey told PEOPLE that the incident took place around 9:50 p.m. on Tuesday night.

Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter Speak Out Amid Divorce

The spokesperson revealed that Hunter Jr. was charged with simple assault but was not taken to county jail.

TMZ reported that Williams dropped her son off at home to get some things but was not aware that her estranged husband was there. The two made a quick trip to a nearby store before Williams got back to pick Hunter Jr. up.

Somehow, a verbal disagreement turned into a physical altercation in the parking lot. Sources claim that Hunter put his son in a headlock, which caused Hunter Jr. to punch him in the nose to break free.

“I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally,” Hunter said in a statement to the outlet. “Things are not always how they appear.”

Williams filed for a divorce from Hunter last month after nearly 22 years of marriage.
