Double Trouble for Spates Sisters
(Memphis) She made headlines when her conjoined twins were separated in Memphis.
But now, Adrienne Spates is dodging cameras, after her recent arrest for hit and run.
“See that right there. That’s what I keep telling y’all. Kiss my —. F— y’all. B—” said an angry Adrienne Spates.
We caught up with Spates at her mother’s South Memphis home.
She made it clear she wanted us gone.
But she may have bigger worries.
Friday, Spates’ 18-year-old sister Andreka was arrested after police say she tried to run over the father of her children in South Memphis.
They say Andreka didn’t have a driver’s license or insurance and had children in the car with no seat restraints.
According to police, Adrienne Spates, who owns the vehicle, was in the passenger’s seat, heavily intoxicated.
But Adrienne angrily told us she wasn’t there.
“No. How the — I am in the car with my sister?” she said.
Spates does admit to being behind the wheel when two women were hit and injured in Cooper Young last month.
She says she left the scene because people started yelling at her though at least one witness said that never happened.
She is facing charges in that accident and showed up at jail for processing Monday.
But like her sister, she is also facing charges involving her children’s father.
Police say back in April, they found Andrienne intoxicated and driving drunk near his home, on Phillips Place, the same street where her sister Andreka was arrested Friday.
Adrienne will be in court later this month for those April charges.
It’s believed that may have played a role in DCS taking custody of her twins.
We asked Adrienne Spates where her kids are now?
“You know better than me,” she said.
Two charges against the younger Spates sister, Andreka, were thrown out in court Monday.
By the way, the woman who Adrienne Spates hit last month, Leslie Shannon Parker, is now out of the hospital.
She has a long road to recovery.
Baptist Hospital is reportedly helping with her rehab.
Parker’s supporters are planning a bake sale and a concert to raise money for her medical expenses.
