Porsha Leggs assaults brother with ashtray vase, threatens to kill him, per report

31-year-old Porsha Leggs was jailed on April 18th on an outstanding warrant from November 2022 after allegedly threatening to kill her brother. Porsha and her brother Ellis Leggs lived together on Rosa Parks Boulevard. When Ellis got home from work, he was talking to his mother on the phone about how Porsha had recently been assaulted. She didn’t like that they were discussing her, so she started yelling and picked up a vase that they kept on the coffee table to ash their cigarettes in and tried to hit him with it.

Ellis was able to swat the vase before it hit him, causing the ashes to be scattered. He told police that’s when Porsha picked up a pink kitchen knife that was in the room and said, “You’re going to die today.” This put Ellis in fear of being stabbed, and he ran out of the backdoor. Chavez Lewis was a witness in the room when Porsha started yelling at Ellis, and he saw her try to hit him with the vase and threaten, “You’re going to die today,” but did not see her grab a knife. Porsha left the scene before officers arrived, and Ellis told them that she left with about $900 worth of his property.
