‘Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta’ Star Threatens to Sue Police After She Was Arrested for DUI

Former “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Tresure Price appears to be in more drama after Atlanta police arrested her sometime last week for driving under the influence.

Price reportedly ran a red light when she was stopped by cops according to a police report obtained by TMZ. Authorities said she drove for several blocks before finally pulling over. Officers claimed the star smelled like alcohol and failed an administered sobriety test. However, the reality star told authorities that she’d only had 1 shot of Vodka and a lemon drop martini.

Price was later arrested for failure to obey, reckless driving and DUI and then later posted bail.

The radio personality is now threatening to sue Atlanta authorities for injuries she sustained amid arrest including face, nose, cheek and chest pain.

On the way to the police stations, the cops were forced to slam on their to prevent from hitting a pedestrian on a bicycle who reportedly appeared out of the blue according to the arresting officer. Authorities heard Price sliding in the backseat, but wasn’t sure if she’d struck the cage or not. She was then driven to the hospital.

Price told the news outlet that she wasn’t given a sobriety test and the arresting officer who she claimed was a Black female cop, never strapped her in a seat-belt. The cop’s alleged indiscretion led to the reality star’s face being smashed into the cage, bruises, a knot on her forehead and whiplash, Price claimed.

She believed the female officer recognized that she was a television personality and had a personal vendetta against her. She told Tmz that she’s hired a lawyer.

Price appeared on season 6 of “LHHATL” and is known for getting into explosive fights with former stripper Jessica Dime and VH1 co-star Tommie Lee.
