“Love& Hip Hop Atlanta” star Tommie Lee has just gotten arrested — for the third consecutive time.

Lee, 34, whose real name is Atasha Jefferson, was probably excited that she was finally about to go home after being arrested twice within 24 hours in October.

But Lee was, instead, rerouted from the Cobb County Jail to the nearby Fulton County Jail, TMZ reports. Both jails are in metro Atlanta.

The combustible reality star was about to be released from the Cobb County Jail in Marietta, Georgia, with an ankle monitor on Nov. 7. The problem was that Lee got arrested the same day for violating her probation in her DUI case.

As rolling out reported, her latest trouble began when Lee was originally arrested in October for beating her daughter in school. She allegedly lost it and pulled her daughter’s hair and slammed her head into the school lockers, which put her in violation of her probation. Lee was then arrested less than 24 hours later when, after getting released from the Cobb County Jail, she defied the judge’s order to avoid contact with her daughter. When Lee called her daughter, the police were almost immediately dispatched to her home to pick her up from her house.

After that second arrest, the judge denied her bail, and she has been in one county jail or another ever since.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that she is now in the Fulton County Jail, the county where she was busted for drunk driving, for the past month.

The entertainment publication also reports that Lee may get an opportunity to get released later in December.
