The 39-year-old woman started threatening the victim. She told him she “would have him killed and shot up.” The victim attempted to ignore Tommie Lee, but she poked him in the face. He grabbed her by the arms and held them behind her back until the police arrived at the scene.

Authorities viewed surveillance footage of the incident. The video corroborated the victim’s version of events, resulting in her arrest.

Tommie Lee’s latest arrest added to her extensive list of run-ins with the law. Her past troubles included an arrest for making terroristic threats after violating a restraining order obtained by fellow Love & Hip-Hip-Hop: Atlanta cast member Joseline Hernandez. Tommie Lee also landed in jail for showing up drunk to court in a child abuse case in 2019.
