ATLANTA — Joey Santolini, also known as Tatianna on season 2 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” was arrested last week after an incident of disorderly conduct at an Atlanta nightclub.

When police arrived, she allegedly refused to leave peacefully and had to be escorted out in handcuffs.

“im fine! It was a dumb situation that I wish didn’t happen but shit happens and people make mistakes. There was no violence or ridiculousness.”
