Officials have not said what caused the fight or if anyone else was involved.

According to police, the responding officer tried to de-escalate the situation by talking to the people involved so that they could be escorted from the club.

However, police say they then became physically aggressive towards the officer.


Police say the “unruly patrons” were asked to leave by security but they refused to do so and a physical altercation ensued.

According to the Fulton County Jail, all four individuals were charged with willful obstruction of a law enforcement officer. Mena and Shaw were also charged with simple battery.

Officials also charged Mena with simple battery against a police officer.

Richardson and Mena are members of the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” cast.
