Former actress Maia Campbell was among 44 people arrested during a drag racing crackdown in Atlanta on Saturday.

Recently, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms promised to allow drag racing on a designated block in the city. The sport has exploded in popularity in recent years.

But police say drag racing has become a problem since the coronavirus pandemic. And the mayor walked back her promise to allow illegal street racing.

Police issued 114 citations and impounded 29 vehicles. Four firearms were seized, including a semi-automatic rifle.

Campbell, 43, is best known for starring as Tiffany alongside LL Cool J in the hit TV sitcom "In the House."

Campbell battled drug addictions over the years. She supported herself financially by selling her body on street corners.

LL Cool J tried to reach out to his former co-star after she went viral while hustling for change at a gas station in 2017. But she replied, "Don't call me, I'll call you."

"You can't help someone who doesn't want your help," LL wrote on Twitter.

"He no longer belongs to us. He belongs to the ages," said Obama, borrowing the words of Edwin M. Stanton, who, as Abraham Lincoln lay on his deathbed, said "He now belongs to the ages.”
