Teairra Mari Pleads Guilty to DWI
Teairra Mari has pleaded guilty in her DWI case in New York.
On Monday (Sept. 9), the 31-year-old singer entered a guilty plea to one count of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence, reports TMZ.
According to the Queens District Attorney’s Office, the former “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star must complete several DWI-related courses, including a victim impact panel and an impaired driver program. She must also install an ignition interlock device in her car for the next year.
Additionally, her license has been suspended for six months. If she fails to comply with the terms of her sentence, she could face up to a year in jail.
Mari, who was previously convicted of DUI in 2011 in Los Angeles, was arrested in June when cops pulled her over after witnessing her driving out of the Queens-Midtown Tunnel with the front wheel missing and sparks shooting up from her Dodge Charger. She allegedly had a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.304, more than three times the legal limit. She was arrested and booked for DWI and driving without a license.
After hearing the news, her rival 50 Cent reposted the TMZ headline on Instagram. “Smh 🤦♂️looking like the old drink lady from up the block,” he wrote before calling out her lawyer Lisa Bloom. “@lisabloomesq there goes your me too movement why are you so quiet.”
50 has been trying to collect $30,000 in legal fees from Mari after he prevailed in the revenge porn lawsuit she filed against him in May 2018.
