“Basketball Wives” co-star Nia Crooks (pictured right) reportedly will not be chillin’ in a jail cell anytime soon as a result of a plea deal she took for b*tch slapping cast mate Jennifer Williams during an episode of the hit show, according to TMZ[1].

Crooks, who was charged with misdemeanor battery by the Broward County District Attorney’s office in Florida, slapped Williams across the face last year during a heated group discussion with other cast members as they sat around a dinner table. The violent move, which was unprovoked by Williams, was captured by the show’s Vh1 camera crew. Williams filed a criminal complaint against Crooks in turn.

Crooks, who faced a year in prison, decided to plea “no contest.” It seems like the only route to go, considering her violent display was caught on film.

Instead of a jail cell, Crooks was allegedly sentenced to a year’s probation and a $645 fine. She also has to compose a letter of apology to Williams, undergo thirteen weeks of anger management training and keep her distance from her victim.

Lesson learned, ya think?
