Police: 'Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta' star hit valet on headJuly 11, 2018 7:59pm

ATLANTA (AP) — A "Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" star who has had various run-ins with the law was arrested again after police say she refused orders from officers and hit a valet on the head.

Atlanta police spotted 34-year-old Atasha Jefferson obstructing traffic at 1:16 a.m. on Monday, Officer Lisa Bender said in an email. 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.

The valet didn't press charges, but Jefferson was charged with "disorderly under the influence" and booked at Atlanta City Detention Center.

Online court records show Jefferson has been arrested numerous times previously in the Atlanta area.

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.

Jefferson was released on bond Monday, said Atlanta Department of Corrections spokeswoman Jamille Bradfield. Bradfield said she wasn't sure if Jefferson had an attorney.
