The radio station boss declined to comment but she was arrested for shoplifting Aug. 5.

Brandi Britain, an integral part of Rock 100.5′s morning show for several years, is telling people on social media she is no longer on the show.

She was the show’s board operator but was given a lot of airtime as well, providing a female perspective for the two leads Jason Bailey and “Southside” Steve Bailey.

Rickman wrote in a text Wednesday: “We’re not allowed to talk about it.” Bailey didn’t respond to a similar inquiry.

Sean Shannon, the market manager for Cumulus Atlanta, texted, “Can’t comment.”

Her photo remains on the website page as of Wednesday afternoon.

On the show that aired Monday, Aug. 9, Bailey announced that Britain was off the air the previous Friday, Aug. 6, because she was arrested on Aug. 5. for stealing cat food and concealer. “She was put in handcuffs and booked in county jail,” Bailey said.

The Dekalb County County website showed Britain was indeed arrested for shoplifting, a misdemeanor, and released at 5:50 p.m. on Aug. 6.

Britain said there were issues at the store with the scanners, the lines were insane and she was in a rush for work, so she just walked out. “I did wrong and I’m very sorry,” she said on air. “I would never do it again.”

Bailey said he was shocked, adding: “You do not strike me as this person.”

Britain: “Everybody thinks they’re invincible until they’re not.” She said this is not a chronic issue and she has never been arrested before.

In retrospect, she said she should have just dropped the items and walked out without them.

On Twitter, she implied that the arrest led to her firing at Rock 100.5. “The judge didn’t care but cumulus did haha,” she told one listener.
