Mwangi was arrested on Tuesday by a Nairobi Court on a Sh100,000 cash bail or an alternative bond of Sh200,000.
He was charged with forging a letter impersonating Interior CS Fred Matiang’i and using it to threaten the complainant who is also Wendy’s mother, Magdalene Mbele.
Appearing before Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi, the suspect denied the charges.

He was arrested on Monday last week after DCI issued an arrest warrant against him a week earlier.
Mwangi shot to the limelight in August when the acrobat blasted him on live TV for exploiting her and pocketing monies made from shows all over the world.
Speaking to Citizen TV, the girl noted that her family has been living in abject poverty because she did not receive her dues.
Her mother on the other hand acknowledged receiving small amounts from the suspect but they were not enough to make ends meet.
