Heather and Wayde King star on the Animal Planet series Tanked
Tanked star Heather King was reportedly arrested after she got into an argument with her husband Wayde that turned physical.
On Wednesday, Heather was arrested in Las Vegas after police officers were called to the couple’s home, TMZ reports. The Animal Planet personality was later booked for misdemeanor domestic violence and released the same day.
Heather’s arrest came after she reportedly got into an argument with Wayde, who she allegedly slapped in the face and kicked in the stomach twice.
When authorities responded to their home, they noticed redness on a side of Wayde’s stomach, the outlet reports. He also reportedly told officers that he was hanging out of the window of Heather’s car as she drove away.
While Heather admitted to slapping Wayde, TMZ reports, she denied dragging Wayde in the vehicle.
PEOPLE is out to Las Vegas Police, Animal Planet and Acrylic Tank Manufacturing for comment.
Together, Heather and Wayde star on the Animal Planet series, which premiered in 2011 and follows Wayde and Brett Raymer — the co-owners of Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM). ATM makes custom-made aquariums for clients across the country, including numerous celebrities. Heather, who shares two daughters with Wayde — Taylor and Morgan — works as the company’s accountant.
“Working alongside her father, brother and husband in one office every day is a little more than an average day job; it’s clearly a labor of love. Heather is the absolute love of Wayde’s life and handles all the accounting at ATM,” her Animal Planet biography reads. “Seeing Wayde in his glory doing what he is most passionate about makes the struggles of mixing business with pleasure well worth it.”
