(EW) – Three reality stars from the Love & Hip Hop franchise were arrested Friday night after a brawl with security guards at a lounge in Atlanta, EW has confirmed.

Erica Mena and Addie “Bambi” Richardson of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta and Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood cast member Rodney Shaw (a.k.a. Zellswag) were at Lucca Lounge in Buckhead on Aug. 25 when Atlanta police responded to a call regarding a dispute on the property, Atlanta’s Channel 2 Action News reports.

Police say security had asked the “unruly patrons” to leave the lounge several times, but they refused and a physical altercation ensued. Officials have not said what initially caused the fight or if anyone else was involved.

Police escorted the group — which also included Kareem Cadet, who is unaffiliated with the Love & Hip Hop franchise — from the business and placed them under arrest. They were held at the Fulton County Jail, and all four were charged with willful obstruction of law enforcement, per the jail’s records. Officials also charged Mena and Shaw with simple battery, and Mena with simple battery against a police officer. A video of the incident that TMZ has shared shows police and security guards forcibly removing them from the lounge.
