Fight leads to Real World cast member illness after using peed on, toilet-scrubbed toothbrush

Police are investigating after a cast member on The Real World 24, which is now in production in New Orleans, had to get medical attention after using his toothbrush, which a fellow cast member peed on and then used to scrub a toilet because of a fight.

Ryan Leslie told police in a written statement that after an “arguement” [sic], cast member Preston Roberson-Charles “later came in my room and took my toothbrush off the counter and scrubbed the inside of the toilet and urinated on my tooth brush. I wasn’t aware of this and continued to use my toothbrush,” and was later “diagnosed with a viral infection.”

According to the police report [PDF], which was filed March 1 and published by the New Orleans Times-Picayune, cast member Ryan “Leslie stated that Roberson called him a “faggot” and that he ‘sucks dick.’ He stated that his throat started to hurt and got progressively worse and had to go to the hospital.”

Police were called to the house (which is owned by Baron Davis) and the paper reports that “[t]hough police conducted interviews and confiscated evidence, no one was arrested.”

Vevmo has details and photos of both Preston Roberson-Charles and Ryan Leslie, who’s identified as a straight hair stylist who’s friends with Paris Hilton’s My New BFF winner Brittany Flickinger.
