A reality television personality who has had a series of run-ins with the law was arrested again, with police saying Atasha Jefferson, who appears on “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta,” refused orders from officers and hit a valet on the head, the AP reports.
“Atlanta police spotted 34-year-old Atasha Jefferson obstructing traffic at 1:16 a.m. on Monday, Officer Lisa Bender said in an email,” the AP reports. “Jefferson, who goes by Tommie Lee on ‘Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta,’ was asked multiple times to move off the road, Bender said. The police spokeswoman said Jefferson began to act in a disorderly manner toward officers and struck the valet on the head, at which point she was detained by officers.”
While the valet did not press charges, Jefferson was booked into the Atlanta City Detention Center and charged with “disorderly under the influence,” the AP reports.
The report adds: “The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports Jefferson attacked an Atlanta mall employee in February. She was also suspended from ‘Love and Hip Hop’ last season due to what show officials described as alcohol-induced violent behavior toward a fellow cast member. During the Season 7 reunion that premiered Monday, Jefferson said she was embarrassed by her actions, but denied having issues with alcohol.”
