Toya Wright was taken into custody yesterday after cops discovered a warrant for unpaid tickets during a routine traffic stop. She was sent to a George jail for less than 24 hours and descried the experience as the worst day of her 30 years of life.
In a message posted on her Instagram account, the reality star and former wife of rapper Lil Wayne said, “I wouldn’t wish jail time for my worse enemy.”
“Wow!!! It’s true I was jailed due to a old ticket that I thought I had taken care of but it was not. I try my best to take care of that sort of thing quickly but some how the ticket slipped through the cracks. I spent a day in jail and I must say that this experience was one of the most devastating of my life,” she wrote. “I wouldn’t wish jail time for my worse enemy.”
She went on to say that the experience was so bad that she wants to be an advocate for the better treatment of prisoners.
“Everyone that gets locked up isn’t a danger to the community. Many people are in jail are just like me for a ticket that was either forgotten or thought to be taken care of. But the way most are treated is inhumane,” she explained. “I never thought in a million years that the kind of things I’ve witnessed went on. The situation was so bad that I don’t even want to leave out the house. After my ordeal I am seriously contemplating being an advocate of better treatment for prisoners. Please believe I’m working on my lightening up my lead foot and if I do mess up and get another ticket, that day it will be taken care of.”
Despite the unfortunate situation, Toya took time to thank the police officers at the facility.
“I want to thank the cops at College Park jail for being so helpful to me.” She added, “Not all cops are a-holes.”
