Love & Hip Hop star Teairra Mari is facing a world of trouble. She was arrested in New York City yesterday, and charged with DUI and evading police.
Teairra is probably best known for owing 50 Cent thousands, after she lost a lawsuit against the rapper/mogul.
Police say that on Friday night, her front passenger side tire blew out on her maroon 2014 Dodge Charger.
Authorities claim that Teairra was so drunk that she drove like that for a mile through the Queens-Midtown Tunnel - a tunnel that connects Queens to Manhattan.
Witnesses told police the Charger was sparking and smoking as it continued through the tunnel, grinding on the pavement.
The police police immediately gave chase, but Teairra, 31, allegedly continued through the tunnel, the sources said.
Officers eventually caught up to the drunken reality star, when she finally stopped the car on the Queens side of the tunnel.
When she performed a breathalyzer test, Mari allegedly had a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.304 — more than three times the legal limit, the sources said.
Cops also determined she did not have a driver’s license and had violated a previous DWI arrest because the Charger was not fixed with a court-ordered ignition interlock, which prevents the car from starting if the driver’s BAC is higher than a certain level, according to the law enforcement sources.
When officers booked her, Mari made sure they knew who she was — allegedly bragging to the cops about being a celebrity, sources said.
She was hit with a slew of charges, including with DWI, violation of court-ordered ignition interlock, illegal tinted windows, illegal operation of a vehicle, unlicensed operator of a motor vehicle, among other things, cops said.
