A “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star was targeted in a case of mistaken identity recently, TMZ has learned — when federal agents pulled him over and cuffed him, before realizing they had the wrong guy.
A rep for the US Marshals tells TMZ, Apollo Nida — husband of “Housewife” Phaedra Parks — was stopped and detained outside Atlanta Thursday afternoon.
According to sources, the Georgia task force responsible for the mistake pulled Apollo over thinking he was a key player in a current investigation — but quickly released him when they realized he wasn’t the person they thought he was.
The US Marshals wouldn’t comment on the open investigation — but we’re told Apollo bears a “striking resemblance” to whoever they’re trying to track down.
