By Ben Brasch, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

COBB COUNTY, Ga. —

A “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” cast member has been indicted in Georgia on multiple felony charges.

Atasha Chizaah Jefferson, who goes by “Tommie Lee” on the VH1 reality show, was indicted Thursday in Cobb County on charges of aggravated assault, child cruelty, battery, aggravated stalking and disrupting a public school, court records show.

The charges stem from a few days in the middle of October 2018, according to the indictment.

Jefferson is accused of grabbing one of her children by the hair and shoving their head into a metal locker at Griffin Middle School in Smyrna, according to an Oct. 16 police warrant. She also allegedly slapped the child’s hands with a purse strap and cursed at the child.

Jefferson quickly bonded out on those charges, but was arrested again on a charge of aggravated stalking.

A condition of her first arrest was to not have contact with the child, but Jefferson went to her Smyrna home and the child was there.

Police said they found Jefferson in the attic of the home and arrested her.

Newsweek reported that, when first joining the cast in 2016, Jefferson said she had been arrested more than two dozen times — mostly, she said, for probation violations.

Her most recent post on Instagram, where she has 3.5 million followers, is captioned: “Been through A storm and it turned me Into Ah G”

Her next court date was not immediately available online.
