NeNe Leakes has been at the center of much of the conflict on the latest season of "Real Housewives of Atlanta." But the reality TV star is now facing off-camera drama from her criminal past as well.
Leakes revealed in her 2009 autobiography, "Never Make the Same Mistake Twice," that she was arrested in her early 20s for shoplifting from a mall with a friend. But Star magazine has recently obtained documents detailing several other arrests that Leakes failed to mention.
According to Athens-Clarke County Superior Court documents, Leakes was arrested and charged in 1992 with three felonies and one misdemeanor count of theft of services from the phone company. At the time, 25-year-old NeNe still went by Linnetihia Johnson, her birth name. She pleaded guilty to all four counts and was sentenced to two years of probation. She was also ordered to repay $2,650, say the documents. But her plea agreement wasn't the end of her legal troubles. She ended up being arrested three more times for probation violations.
The magazine also obtained the mugshot below of the reality television star.

Many "RHOA" fans were surprised to hear of Leakes' multiple arrests, seeing that she has often made disparaging comments about the loaded criminal past of her castmate Marlo Hampton. Leakes and Hampton -- who has been arrested at least seven times -- are currently on the outs. The pair were involved in a heated argument on a recently episode of "RHOA."
