Teairra Mari Arrested for DUI, Assaulting an Officer

Singer-actress Teairra Mari is facing serious charges after a hostile run-in with police, when, according to reports, Mari was arrested for drunk driving and allegedly resisted arrest.

According to TMZ, around 3 a.m. on Aug. 19, the Lottery Ticket actress rear-ended another car while driving her silver Infiniti through Beverly Hills. Once police arrived, they observed “signs of intoxication” from Mari and arrested her for DUI. A witness on the scene explained that Mari was “really messed up … she couldn’t even stand.”

Unfortunately for Mari, her troubles didn’t end there. The report also claims that as the former Roc-A-Fella singer was being arrested, she became “combative” with one of the arresting officers, one of whom suffered a “minor cut” to his hand during the incident.

Mari is now facing charges including DUI and assault on a police officer. At the time of the report, Mari was still in custody and her bail was set at $50,000.

It looks like Mari could use a winning lottery ticket of her own right about now. Hopefully, once this is all settled, Mari will learn that being drunk and irate around cops is never an optimal situation. –nicholas robinson
