A famous RuPaul drag racing contestant was punched this weekend for claiming to be a fool – and then posing for that epic mug shot afterwards.
Joey Santolini – AKA Tatiana from season 2 – was arrested Sunday in Atlanta for a misdemeanor. Let us explain.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Tatiana was accepted by the cop after she claimed to have followed a nightclub employee back to the building through a door she was not supposed to use. According to the cops, the employee just snapped a picture of her and then … he only went through the employee entrance.
Tatiana wanted to come in this way, despite her maid telling her to go around the front. They tell us that Tatiana ignores him and somehow he goes in the back. Then the cops were called … and things are said to have escaped a little.
Our sources, when officers arrive, Tatiana refuses to leave quietly after being asked … and was to be accompanied by a joint in handcuffs.  Tatiana nearly ran the distance in the second season of Drag Race in 2010, finishing fourth out of all 12 racers. She also returned and competed in RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars. Tatiana appeared in Taylor Swift's video for "You Have to Calm Down."
She is probably best known for being one of the youngest drag queens to compete in the show – she was just 21 at the time of filming – and became a phenomenon of fauna for breaking through her tracks, known for with its catchy phrases and ferocious performances.
As for the alleged incident in the background – hey, we all make the choice .. and they don't always work.
