Maia Campbell Arrested In Georgia Street-Racing Crackdown

Former 1990s sitcom star Maia Campbell has been busted as part of a crackdown on street racing in Atlanta, according to reports.

The former actress — best known for starring alongside LL Cool J and Alfonso Ribeiro as Tiffany Warren in the hit show “In the House” — was one of 44 people arrested Saturday during the crackdown, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) revealed.

Campbell, 43 — who has battled drug addiction — was charged with being a pedestrian in the roadway, the paper said, citing police records.

Cops said the arrests were all “for activities related to street racing,” with 114 citations issued, 29 vehicles impounded and four firearms recovered, including a semi-automatic rifle.

Street racing has become a bigger problem because the coronavirus pandemic created “a perfect storm” for bored youngsters, Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos told the AJC.

“Their usual outlets — shopping, hanging out in a park — those were all eliminated by the stay-at-home orders,” Campos insisted.

It was not immediately clear how Campbell was allegedly involved in the racing, AJC said.

As well as “In the House,” Campbell appeared on other television shows like “Moesha,” “Sister, Sister” and “Beverly Hills 90210,” as well as movies, including 1993’s “Poetic Justice.”

But she became known for her battles with drug addiction, opening up about it in a 21012 episode of “Iyanla: Fix My Life,” in which she also described suffering from bipolar disorder while interviewed in a treatment center.

Former co-star LL Cool J tried to get back in touch in 2017 after a video of her asking for crack went viral — but she replied, “Don’t call me. I’ll call you.”

“You can’t help someone who doesn’t want your help,” LL later wrote on Twitter.
