LOS ANGELES (AP) — Grammy-winning singer Faith Evans has been arrested after being stopped at a drunken driving checkpoint in the Los Angeles area.
Officer Cleon Joseph of the LAPD says the 37-year-old Evans was arrested Saturday night near Marina del Rey on suspicion of misdemeanor drunken driving. He says Evans was held for a few hours and released on bail Sunday morning. Her car was impounded.
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.”
A reality series chronicling Evans’ life is reportedly in production, and a new album is scheduled for release in October.
A message left with Evans’ agent Sunday was not immediately returned.
