Love and Hip Hop Atlanta star Karen King was arrested last week for financial identity fraud, theft by taking and forgery in Atlanta.

In August 2015, the VH1 star allegedly walked into Saks Fifth Avenue at Phipps Plaza and bought nearly $5,000 worth of merchandise under the name, Diane Wodey. Atlanta police believe she may have had help from an employee as well, according to WSB-TV2.

King was supposed to make a promotional appearance at the Level V nightclub on Tuesday, but the police were already there waiting for her arrest.

King’s rep has not commented and a trial date is still unknown.

This isn’t the first arrest for King. She was featured on America’s Most Wanted in 2013 after racking up multiple charges on different occasions, including aggravated battery, kidnapping with bodily injury, aggravated assault with intent to murder, armed robbery, various drug related charges and accused of beating up an ex-boyfriend.
