Phaedra Parks' ex-husband, Apollo Nida, has asked a judge to end his criminal probation after he was secretly arrested on May 30, 2021, according to court documents obtained by Radar.

This comes years after the 43-year-old was sentenced to 8 years behind bars in August of 2014 — originally facing a whopping 30 years — on charges of identity theft and money laundering in amounts upwards of $2 million.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum — who was married to Parks from 2009 to 2017 and shares children 9-year-old Ayden and 6-year-old Dylan — was put under court mandated probation for 5 years following his 2019 release from prison.

Now, after his recent May arrest — which involved charges of resisting an officer, and resisting arrest without violence — the barber's attorney is requesting his probation be dropped, arguing Nida has taken all the appropriate steps and effectively “reintegrated into society.”

“Mr. Nida earned income as a guest speaker; Mr. Nida was also paid to host parties and events in various cities and states throughout the country.” The docs continued, “In fact, while on pretrial release (bond) Mr. Nida continued to travel and earn income through these same means.”

Though the charges against the former reality personality were dropped earlier this year on August 5, Nida was required to wear a GPS monitor and abide by a curfew that allegedly “affected his livelihood and family” to the point that he felt it was necessary to end his probation in order to move on with his life.

The father-of-two also claims he was not allowed to travel and lost out on many financial opportunities because of the stringent curfew stipulations.
