Braxton Family Values star and matriarch Evelyn Braxton (a.k.a. Miss Evelyn) is one saucy mama, and while she’s known to be feisty in some situations (remember when she threatened to slap the piss out of Tamar Braxton?), we’ve never known her to be a trouble maker. So imagine our surprise when we learned that on this season on Braxton Family Values, Mama E gets arrested!

While hanging out at The Arsenio Hall Show with her daughters Toni, Tamar, Towanda, and Trina Braxton, Evelyn revealed that she did in fact get arrested… for having a taser gun. Wait what?


“I have a stalker… and with the advice of my lawyer, told me to get a taser, so I bought a taser,” Evelyn told Arsenio. She goes on to say that she thought it would be a great idea to have one in the event anything happened at her Atlanta home, she would be prepared for an attacker. The problem? The taser gun, though legal in Atlanta, is illegal in various other states — including New York. So when Evelyn forgot to remove the taser gun from her bag during a trip to the Big Apple, she was met with a surprise arrest.

“Unfortunately we had no idea that the taser was illegal in New York, so when she went through security, they arrested her,” said Towanda.

Aww! Poor Miss Evelyn.

“That’s a very devastating thing to do, especially when you try to live your life and be an example for your grands and your children and so on and so forth and you end up a jailbird,” Evelyn told Arsenio.

Evelyn’s daughter Trina responded with a comment about her own brush with the law during Season 1 of BFV, when she was pulled over and arrested for a DUI.

“Now you see what it’s like mommy, now you see!” Trina chimed in.
