Teairra Mari has been open about her struggle with alcohol abuse while starring on Love & Hip-Hop:Hollywood. Last season she was maintaining her sobriety until a sex tape of her and her then boyfriend, Akbar, was leaked. She then got into a legal battle with 50 Cent after he reposted the video on his Instagram page. All of these events tested the Detroit native’s sobriety and she seems to have picked up her old habits.
Last night, Mari was arrested while in New York City for driving while intoxicated, TMZ reports. Mari was spotted by police when she was coming out of the Midtown Tunnel, driving a Dodge Charger with the front wheel missing. The bumper was scraping the road, so sparks were flying as she was driving.
After being stopped, Mari was reportedly stumbling out of her vehicle and smelled of alcohol. She was arrested and charged with a DWI and driving without a license. Her license is either suspended or has been revoked. No word yet on if she has been arraigned.
Mari has been going back and forth with 50 Cent on social media ever since a judge ruled that Mari pay 50 $30,000 after ruling in his favor in their revenge porn case. Mari was finding humor in the situation as she poked fun at 50 and even released a song called “I Ain’t Got It.”
