“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Tommie Lee was reportedly arrested twice in less than 48 hours after showing up at her daughter’s middle school and allegedly assaulting her.

Tommie Lee, born Atasha Chizaah Jefferson, was first arrested on Tuesday at Griffin Middle School in Cobb County, Georgia after she allegedly pushed her daughter’s head into a school locker, Channel 2 Action News reports. Jefferson was charged with felony aggravated assault, simple battery, first-degree child cruelty, and disruption of public schools, according to the outlet. She was reportedly released from jail on Wednesday morning after posting $27,000 bond.

Jefferson’s troubles with the law continued when she was arrested again on the same day as her initial release. Channel 2 Action News reports that the reality TV star was taken into custody at her home in Smyrna at around 8 p.m. after police found her in her attic after she opted not to meet police at the door. She was charged with aggravated stalking and obstruction of a police officer, according to the outlet, and remains in the Cobb County Jail, where she is being held without bond.

TMZ reports that Jefferson was ordered by a judge not to make contact with her daughter after Tuesday’s arrest, but violated the court order within three hours by contacting the child, which led to her second arrest.

This is far from Jefferson’s first arrest. The 34-year-old mother of two served 48 hours in jail just last month after pleading guilty to driving under the influence, according to Atlanta Black Star. She was arrested and charged with being “disorderly under the influence” in July, Channel 2 Actions News reports, after police ordered her to stop obstructing traffic and she allegedly responded by continuing to be disruptive and hitting a valet on the head.
