Faith Evans was arrested Saturday night in Los Angeles for suspicion of drunk driving, a misdemeanor charge.
According to MTV, Faith was taken into police custody at 10:40 p.m. at a checkpoint near Marina del Rey. The Associated Press reports Evans’ car was impounded and she was released on bail the following morning.
The incident is not the singer’s first brush with the law. The mugshot above was taken in 2004, when Evans and her husband, Todd Russaw, were arrested in Atlanta on drug possession charges.
Faith avoided jail time by entering a pretrial drug-abuse intervention program. She referenced the drama in her 2005 single “Again.”
“In ATL, I caught a case/ And the media tried to say, I had a habit/ I couldn’t manage, and I’m throwing my life away.”
The R&B singer is the widow of rapper Christopher Wallace, also known as the Notorious B.I.G. She won a Grammy in 1998 for the song “I’ll Be Missing You.”
Faith has a reality show in the works which is reportedly in production now, and a new album is scheduled for release in October.
I wonder if this lil incident will be included in the show…. Stay tuned!
