The ex-wife of late rapper Notorious B.I.G., Faith Evans, was reportedly arrested in Los Angeles this weekend on a DUI (Driving Under The Influence) charge.
Reports of her alleged arrest hit the Internet early Sunday (August 22) morning.
According to law enforcement sources, the singer was stopped at a DUI checkpoint near the Marina Del Rey section of L.A. when officers detected alcohol. We’re told Evans was then arrested and booked on suspicion of DUI. It’s unknown, at this point, what Evans’ blood alcohol level was when police busted her. (TMZ)
Last March, Evans made headlines when her tax debt records landed online.
The IRS filed a $36,360 lien against Evans on March 4 with the New York City Register’s office. The IRS filed a $119,821 lien against Evans on Feb. 16 with the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds. The state of New Jersey filed a $204,000 lien against Evans on Oct. 30, 2008, with the New Jersey State Superior Court. (Detroit News)
