This may be a lesson for you if you have a bunch of outstanding parking tickets.
Antonia 'Toya' Wright was arrested and taken into custody on Tuesday (Dec. 10) in Georgia during a routine traffic stop after police discovered that she failed to pay several parking violations.
Toya’s manager, Cory Blackwell, confirmed the “Tiny & Toya” reality TV stars arrest and release with Rollingout.com, and he claims the incident was due to a systems glitch.
“(It was) based on something that was paid for but that wasn't cleared out of the system. We're currently going over it with the lawyers," Blackwell states.
Home now, Toya is voicing her frustration over the entire ordeal in an open letter, citing the ill treatment of inmates in the surbanban Atlanta Jail:
Wow!!! It’s true I was jailed due to a old ticket that I thought I had taken care of but it was not. I try my best to take care of that sort of thing quickly but some how the ticket slipped through the cracks. I spent a day in jail and I must say that this experience was one of the most devastating of my life. I wouldn’t wish jail time for my worse enemy. Everyone that gets locked up isn’t a danger to the community. Many people that are in jail are just like me for a ticket that was either forgotten or thought to be taken care of. But the way most are treated is inhumane. I never thought in a million years that the kind of things I’ve witnessed went on. The situation was so bad that I don’t even want to leave out the house. After my ordeal I am seriously contemplating being an advocate of better treatment for prisoners. Please believe I’m working on my lightening up my lead foot and if I do mess up and get another ticket, that day it will be taken care of.
After being transported from one jail to another for a freaking traffic ticket. I met some cool and helpful cops at College park Jail. Thank you guys for being so sweet and helpful to me … What a way to celebrate my hubby’s bday.
“Happy Birthday to a person that is not only my husband, but my best friend too …to the best husband in the world. I feel so blessed to have found true love in your arms. I feel so proud to call you my husband. May you be blessed with all that you have ever dreamt of today and always. I love you @billiondollarboybizz#mysag #love #TheWrights”
