Widow was released on Tuesday after posting $5,000 of her $50,000 bond.

On Friday night (May 28), Widow reportedly came home intoxicated and was upset that her boyfriend was sleeping at her apartment, according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by TMZ.

The alleged victim told police that he was dragged across the floor by Widow, pushed into a bed frame, knocking him unconscious. He also claims he was punched in the face several times and strangled.

The alleged victim reported the alleged abuse to the police the following day.

In a leaked video from the arrest, Widow told police “You’re taking me down because I was assaulted in my own apartment as someone else would not understand that his privilege does not extend to my apartment.”

“As a Black man, I’m being arrested for defending myself in my apartment,” Widow alleged. “And just because his ass got beat up because he would not leave when I asked five times, I’m being arrested… instead of someone being arrested for violating me.”

Widow is due to appear in court on June 7th. Until then, she is on house arrest, cannot contact the alleged victim or victim or witnesses, and must not possess or be in the presence of firearms.

Widow Von’Du appeared on season 12 of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
