On Sunday night, the Baddies star night took an unexpected turn when she was arrested at LIV Nightclub in Miami. According to Miami PD records obtained by TMZ Hip Hop, the altercation began outside the club's entrance. A man claimed that he believed Tommie approached him in an attempt to hand him an unknown object. The man, who had never met Tommie before, refused to take the item, which allegedly sparked a violent reaction from the reality star.

Allegations Of Aggression

The man, whose identity has not been disclosed, reported that after he refused the item, Tommie Lee became belligerent and aggressive. He further alleged that Tommie threatened his life, saying she would have him killed. This alarming statement reportedly led the man to take immediate action. Fearing for his safety, the man grabbed Tommie by the arms, turned her around, and restrained her until the police arrived. This decisive move prevented the situation from escalating further but also placed Tommie in a compromising position when law enforcement arrived on the scene.
