NEW YORK (AP) — A former cast member of the television reality series "Bad Girls Club" has been arrested on charges alleging she stole debit card information from a man she visited on a prostitution date.

Shannade Clermont was arrested Wednesday on charges including wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Prosecutors say the man she visited in January 2017 was found dead of a drug overdose the next morning in his midtown Manhattan apartment.

It was not immediately clear who will represent Clermont in court.

Authorities say the 24-year-old Clermont used stolen debit card information to try to obtain over $20,000. They say she used the money to pay her rent and phone bills, buy plane tickets and make online purchases of clothing and other merchandise.
