“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Tresure Price thinks the cop who arrested her for DUI had a personal vendetta … or really hates reality TV and took it out on her.
Tresure tells TMZ … she believes the cop who pulled her over last week in Atlanta, recognized her from the show and gave her an extra hard time because of it — she alleges the officer even got “a little rough” with her.
Price claims she passed the officer’s field sobriety test, but was still cuffed and thrown in the back of a squad car … without being buckled up.
We broke the story … as Tresure was being hauled to the station, the cop had to slam on her brakes and the ‘L&HH’ star was propelled forward. She tells us her face smashed into the cage as a result, leaving her with whiplash, bruises and a nasty knot on her forehead.
Price insists she wasn’t intoxicated, and suggests the cop escalated her traffic violation into something greater … simply because she’s a TV personality.
For the record, cops say Tresure bombed the field sobriety tests and refused a Breathalyzer … and there’s no mention of an officer getting physical with her.
Regardless, she’s lawyered up.
Atlanta PD tells TMZ … Tresure has not filed a complaint regarding her arrest, and they would advise her to do so if she feels one of their officers acted inappropriately.
