Over the weekend, Singer, Teairra Mari was arrested in Beverly Hills for driving while intoxicated
Not only did the songbird get herself arrested for a DUI … afterwards she was charged with attacking a cop. Really? I mean, I know she doesn’t have much to loose, but where were her friends?
Law enforcement sources tell us the 23-year-old actress/singer was driving a silver Infiniti through Beverly Hills around 3:00 AM, when she rear-ended the car in front of her.
Police on the scene of the accident observed “signs of intoxication” from Teairra and therefore arrested her for DUI. One person who was at the scene tells TMZ Teairra was “really messed up … she couldn’t even stand.”
As the story goes on, once she was being booked she became “combative” with one of the arresting officers. Sources tell us one cop suffered a “minor cut” to his hand during the incident. He must have been new.
Now Mari faces multiple charges including DUI and assault on a police officer.
Mari’s bail was set at 50 K, and we’re not sure if she’s out yet, but she did issue a statement apologizing for the incident.
Let me start by saying that this is a very embarrassing moment for me, I know that I’ve disappointed so many people including myself. I take full responsibility for my actions, but I absolutely did NOT “attack” a Beverly Hills police officer and I’m very confused by those allegations. I did have drinks and I misjudged the situation by driving myself home. I want to apologize to those that I endangered that night and also to the people that I’ve let down. I hope that this situation can save someone from making the dumb decision to drink and drive!
You know, everyone, and I do mean EVERYONE, is entitled to make mistakes. We sincerely hope Teairra has learned from this as drunk driving is increasingly dangerous. Hell, drunk WALKING is Dangerous. But most importantly she should be thankful the LAPD didn’t kick her ass up and down the highway for being drunk and feisty. Let this be a lesson learned … Now get back to the music.
