'Love & Hip Hop' star Tommie Lee arrested for appearing drunk in court for child abuse case
It has been reported that Lee's BAC was 0.16, twice the legal limit, and a violation of her bond. She was arrested and bail has not been set yet.
Former 'Love & Hip Hop' star Tommie Lee has multiple charges of child abuse slapped on her and latest reports stated Lee has been arrested again, but this time for appearing in court intoxicated. TMZ reported that the 34-year-old star showed up to court last week in Cobb County, Georgia, for a hearing on her child abuse criminal case. She appeared to be strongly intoxicated and the judge ordered her to undergo drug and alcohol test immediately.
"We're told Tommie's BAC was 0.16 ... twice the legal limit, and a violation of her bond. Tommie was arrested on the spot, and no bail's been set yet," the publication stated. In recent news prior to this, Lee was attempting to get approval to move to California for work related purpose while she was out on bond. However, her request was denied by the court.
At the beginning of the year, it was revealed Lee is facing a maximum sentence of 54 years in prison for child abuse after reportedly going to her daughter's school to disrupt her class, smacking her hands with a purse strap, slapping her in the face, dragging her across the hallway by her hair and slamming her into a locker. With her new arrest, Lee may be behind bars until the next hearing. The entertainer tried to defend her parenting style but she was bashed online for physically abusing her daughter since the explanation didn't resonate with many of her detractors.
