Last week, Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta Season 6 star Lovely Mimi (real name Myha Thi Luong) was arrested in North Carolina and charged with felony drug possession.

The incident occurred at a local casino. 

The reality star was booked in Cherokee County, North Carolina  on June 6. The initial report stated that Mimi “allegedly dropped an unknown amount of ecstasy on the floor of Harrah’s Cherokee Valley River Casino, according to Cherokee tribal police.”

Here's her side of the story:

“I am banned. I did get caught. But, I am innocent. I didn’t do nothin’, I didn’t have nothin’.”

“I was sitting there and I was playing. I go to the bathroom. I come out of the bathroom and there’s like four or five po-pos around me…They said that they got me on video recording that I dropped something. Mind you — outside. They said that there was one pill dropped outside.”

“Now, who has the time to find one pill outside? Not in the casino, outside of the casino! They found one pill outside and they linked it to me! Out of all the people, they linked it to me.”

Here's the video:

Mimi was officially charged with felony possession of a schedule 1 controlled substance. The charge is a Class I felony in North Carolina, which is punishable by 3-12 months in prison if convicted.
