'Drag Race' Star Tatianna Arrested During Pride Event for Disorderly Conduct

Tuesday October 15, 2019

"RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 2 star Tatianna was arrested for disorderly conduct in Atlanta, Ga. Sunday during a Pride event, TMZ reports.

Tatianna celebrated Atlanta Pride Sunday with thousands of people but was arrested after she allegedly followed a gay club employee into a building through an employees-only door. CBS 46 identifies the club as Ten Atlanta and the employee as Jacob Brody.

Cops told TMZ the employee took a photo with the performer and that Tatianna allegedly did not want to enter the club through the front entrance and attempted to follow him through the restricted area. That's when the authorities were called.

Sources told the website when police arrived to the scene Tatianna allegedly refused to leave peacefully by the officers' request and was eventually put in handcuffs.

Tatianna, who also competed on "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars" Season 3, has since been released from Atlanta City Detention Center and took to Twitter to tell her fans she's "fine," calling the incident a "dumb situation that I wish didn't happen."

"But shit happens and people make mistakes," she added. "There was no violence or ridiculousness." She also went on to comment on her mugshot, which you can check out via TMZ, by saying, "I'm crying in the picture because I was scared and had never been in that position before. wish I would have just smiled."
