AceShowbiz - Actress Maia Campbell was reportedly arrested alongside 44 others in Atlanta over the weekend. According to reports, the 90's star was booked after a recent crackdown on illegal street racing.
It remains to be seen how exactly she was involved in it. Additionally, fans were more shocked to see how the actress, who is best known for her role as Nicole on FOX's 1994 comedy-drama series "South Central", looks in her mugshot that featured her looking disheveled.
This arrived after Maia was said to be financially struggling. The Tiffany Warren of sitcom "In the House" is allegedly making a living by being a sex worker. An Atlanta woman claimed to have met the former rising star in the 1990s at a Texaco gas station near Atlanta several times. Sharing about their encounters, the woman claims that the 43-year-old "is visibly strung out on drugs and openly pimping herself out for money and drugs."
In a Facebook photo which was shared in March, Maia was featured wearing nothing but a black bra, which has been ripped in one part, and gray underpants. She also rocked oversized glasses and her hair seemed to be unkempt.
In addition to telling Maia that she would bring her food and some of her old clothes, the woman "told her that if she ever felt like she was in danger and needed a place to lay her head from time to time to protect herself from the harsh weather she could contact me. The woman added, The look in her eyes was priceless."
Maia, who worked as a model in the 1990s, had been struggling with bipolar disorder her whole career, but the damages of the mental illness did not go public until early 2000s. In the following year after the birth of her daughter Elizabeth Elisha Gutierrez in 2000, she stopped taking medication for her bipolar disorder. This led her to losing custody of her daughter.
Back in 2009, a video showing Maia shouting profanities and appearing to be in an incoherent state went viral. A few weeks later, her stepfather Ellis Gordon released a statement announcing that she was at a facility receiving treatment.
