Erica Dixon Speaks Out About Being Harassed By Police Prior to Arrest

The L&HH star was jailed after a routine traffic stop last week.

Published March 26, 2017

News of Love & Hip Hop star Erica Dixon's arrest went viral last week after a video of the reality star allegedly attempting to flee during a traffic stop hit the web. While police tried to paint Dixon as the one in the wrong, there appeared to be more going on than met the eye.

Now, the 32-year-old has shared her side of the story with Atlanta radio station Street 94.5.

"Ok, so [the officer] stopped me and said I was speeding," Dixon recalled. "Ok fine, write me my speeding ticket. I give him my license and he says, 'Miss Dixon...' I knew then, oh gosh, it's over with."

She went on to say that the officer ordered her to get out of her car. After minutes of waiting, Dixon told the officer, "I feel like you're harassing me, can you please just call your captain?" The officer responded, "I ain't calling no dang body." When the officer finally returned to her car and handed Dixon back her license and speeding ticket, he told her, "If you drive off, you're going to jail."

Dixon asked, "For what?" The officer responded, "Ma'am, I smell alcohol." When the officer asked if Dixon would take a sobriety test, she refused, saying the officer was harassing her. She then pulled around to a pump in the gas station they were parked at when the officer made his move. "Before I knew it he back at my window, banging on the window like, 'Get out of the car, you're going to jail!"

Hear the rest of the story in Dixon's own words below:

Clearly the first video did not tell the whole story of Dixon's arrest.
