Faith Evans pleads no contest to reckless driving

- Associated Press - Tuesday, November 30, 2010

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say Faith Evans has pleaded no contest to reckless driving after being arrested in August for investigation of drunken driving.

Los Angeles city attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan says the Grammy-winning singer entered the plea Monday and was sentenced to three years of informal probation.

Police say the 37-year-old Evans was arrested after being stopped at a DUI checkpoint in Marina del Rey.

She is the widow of rapper Christopher Wallace, also known as the Notorious B.I.G. Evans won a Grammy in 1998 for the song "I'll Be Missing You."

It was not immediately clear whether she was represented by an attorney. A phone message left with her agent, Marc Gerald, was not immediately returned.

Evans' plea was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.
