It looks like Wendy Williams’ son, Kevin Hunter Jr. will be off the hook after recent reports suggest prosecutors may dismiss his assault case. The 18-year-old previously punched his father, Kevin Hunter Sr. during an altercation. This led to his day in court, though his father didn’t press charges.

THE PUNCHING INCIDENT

Following the end of Wendy’s tumultuous marriage to Kevin Sr. after learning he fathered a child with his long term mistress, her son reacted violently against his father. The incident occurred last month at a parking lot outside a store near their New Jersey home where the two argued over the repercussions of Wendy and Kevin Sr.’s divorce. In the heat of their confrontation, Kevin Sr. reportedly put his son in a headlock and his junior responded by punching him in the nose.
