Tommie Lee, a cast member of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta,” was arrested Tuesday after shoving one her children’s head into a locker at Griffin Middle School in Smyrna, according to my sister media operation Channel 2 Action News.
Lee, whose real name is Atasha Chizaah Jefferson, was charged with felony aggravated assault, simple battery, first-degree child cruelty and disruption of public schools. She left jail on bond Wednesday.
TMZ said she was told to stay away from her daughter but contacted her within three hours. She was arrested again Wednesday night and is being held without bail.
She has been a magnet for trouble over the years. She has been arrested about three dozen times in her life.
Lee has had issues with alcohol over the years, as noted frequently on the TV show.
