Disturbing new video has been released from the incident in which ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Tommie Lee was arrested for a DUI — and it shows her being violently ripped out of her vehicle and thrown on the ground. Click inside to watch the shocking video.
Tommie Lee was pulled over in January 2016, but as you’re about to see it didn’t go so well. The police claim there was a lot of “movement” in the car when they pulled it over, which led them to assume that the original driver got out of their seat. to avoid being arrested. However, when they tried to confront Tommie in the backseat with allegations she had switched out of the drivers seat, she immediately resisted and refused to do what the officer asked.
“Come out. You were driving. Come on, let’s go. Get out of the car now. I’m going to ask you one more time, get out of the car. Get out of the car. Get out of the car. Get out of the car,” the officer says over and over again, and you can hear Tommie asking questions and talking to him. Things take a turn when the officer gets frustrated and reaches into the backseat, grabs Tommie, and drags her out of the car until she’s face-down on the ground.
The video is below, but as a warning you should know that it’s upsetting to watch.
As the video continues, the officer cuffs Tommie while she’s on the ground, then lifts her up by her hands until she’s standing. It looks like she’s having a hard time walking, though it’s unclear if it’s because she is allegedly intoxicated or from the way the officer physically slammed her onto the ground.
When the officer leans Tommie on the hood of his car she rolls off, and instead of catching her the officer violently grabs her cuffs and pulls her back up. “Get up,” he yells through gritted teeth, revealing his anger. The video cuts out shortly after that moment.
Tommie was booked for disorderly conduct, driving while intoxicated, and driving on an expired license.
