Mickey “Memphitz” Wright is back in the news for all the wrong reasons. The former reality star and music industry exec is wanted for assault and robbery—for accusing a car wash work of stealing his weed.
Johns Creek police have issued warrants for the arrest of Mickey “Memphitz” Wright, a former record executive who appeared in “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” and “Toya: A Family Affair.”
He’s wanted for aggravated assault and robbery charges.
Surveillance video from a Johns Creek car wash shows Harold Huntley trying to get away from an attacker Thursday.
Moments earlier police say Wright came to the Club Corners Carwash.
“He was getting a car wash, and when I drove his car into the tunnel, I smelled marijuana,” Huntley said.
Huntley maintains that he did not liberate Wright of his marijuana, and told him so.
Nevertheless, Wright allegedly told him, “It’s gonna be your life or it’s gonna be my weed,” while pulled out a gun.
Wright eventually left, but not before taking Huntley’s phone.
Say what now?
A felony arrest warrant was issued armed robbery and aggravated assault. Police found the SUV about two miles away, and it still had the handgun and stolen phone inside.
This is not Wright’s first run in with the law. Back in 2011, he was arrested after trying to go through security at Atlanta’s Jackson-Hartfield airport with a loaded handgun.
