Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Apollo Nida, the husband of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member Phaedra Parks, was charged with bank fraud and identity theft, the U.S. District Attorney's office in Atlanta said.

The complaint filed by the district attorney's office said Nida created fake companies, enabling him to access databases from which he could find individuals to defraud.

Nida allegedly opened fake ban accounts under those names and funneled stolen money and auto loan proceeds into the accounts.

Nida was originally arrested in September and released from jail on pretrial bail.

Parks and Nida married in 2009 and have two children together. Nida previously served time in jail from 2004 to 2009 for breaking federal racketeering laws related to auto title fraud.
