A recurring guest star on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” allegedly tried to traffic two teenage girls for prostitution, authorities said Thursday.
Lyndon “Sas” Smith, 26 — who has appeared on the reality TV show about 20 times — and his alleged accomplice James Ruffin, 27, were planning on travelling out of Georgia to pimp the two teens out, police said.
They were taken to DeKalb County Jail on charges of criminal attempt to traffic persons for sexual servitude and criminal attempt to pimp a person less than 18 years of age, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.
