Reality star Treasure Price is claiming the officer who arrested her last week had a personal vendetta against her. The “Love & Hip Hop” star told TMZ that she believes she was recognized as being famous when she was pulled over, so the officer “got a little rough” with her.
The 24-year-old states she passed the field sobriety test, but was still thrown in the back of the police car and left unbuckled. While on the way to jail, she was thrown forward when the officer had to stop abruptly, causing injuries to her chest and face.
According to the Atlanta PD, there has been no complaint filed regarding her arrest, but she has lawyered up.
Treasure Price had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day last week. It all started when she was pulled over for running a red light. She was then given a field sobriety test when the responding officers smelled booze on her and in the car. The “Love & Hip Hop” star bombed the test, was cuffed and arrested.
While on the way to jail, the officer who was driving, had to slam on the breaks to avoid hitting someone on a bicycle. The motion caused the 24-year-old to slide off the seat and slam into the cage. She suffered injuries to her face, nose, cheek and chest, so they had to take a detour to the hospital.
After getting the all clear at the hospital, Treasure was booked on DUI, reckless driving and failure to obey charges. She later posted bail and was released.
