AceShowbiz - Kim Zolciak's estranged father Joseph Zolciak was reportedly arrested for battery on Monday, November 8. Joseph was accused of physically assaulting his wife during an altercation.

After Karen was done, she allegedly tried to talk to Joseph several times. However, instead of talking to her, Joseph reportedly "pushed her, causing her to fall and hit the right side of her head on an antique table."
The report also stated that Karen was "highly intoxicated" when she was transported to West Florida Hospital, though Karen claimed that she only had two glasses of wine. As for Joseph, he said that Karen fell when she tried to block the TV because she was drunk.
