Basketball Wives' star Nia Crooks has been charged with battery, according to U.S. reports. 
The reality star has been charged with the misdemeanor after striking Jennifer Williams in the mouth in January reports. 

A rep for the Broward County State's Attorney's Office told the website officials decided to file the charge on April 10 after Williams filed a criminal complaint. If Nia is convicted she could be faced with a year in jail.

Williams has already filed a lawsuit accusing her personal assistant of slapping her on the TV show. 
Williams claims she is still suffering from a neck injury and post traumatic stress since she was attacked.

The incident, which aired on Monday, happened when television channel VH1 were filming the group on January 21 in the presidential suite of the Gulfstream Park racetrack in South Florida.

'I didn’t watch the video for a long time because I lived it,' she said. 'It’s disturbing. It’s humiliating. I get anxiety just thinking about it.' 'Violence used against any person is wrong but when a woman hits another woman it sets a horrible example for young girls everywhere,' Williams told the New York Daily News.

Williams has also filed a complaint with the state attorney’s office in Florida, said lawyer Sanford Rubenstein.The suit seeks unspecified monetary and punitive damages from Crooks. VH1 is not named as a defendant.

Crooks could not be reached for comment by the website.
