‘Love & Hip Hop’ star busted for driving drunk in car with only 3 wheels
A “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star — who was previously sued by rapper 50 Cent after she claimed he shared a sex tape of her– was busted Saturday morning for allegedly driving drunk and unlicensed — and with only three wheels on her car, law enforcement sources told the Post.
Teairra Mari — who sued the famed rapper in May 2018 and was later ordered by a judge to pay up –lost a wheel when her front passenger side tire dislodged from her maroon 2014 Dodge Charger around 3 a.m., sources said.
Mari then drove like that for a mile through the Queens-Midtown Tunnel.
Witnesses told police the Charger was sparking and smoking as it continued through the tunnel, grinding on the pavement.
Bridge and Tunnel Authority police gave chase, but Mari, 31, allegedly continued through the tunnel, the sources said.
Officers caught up to Mari when she finally stopped the car on Borden Avenue near 5th Street in Long Island City.
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.
Mari sued 50 Cent and her ex-boyfriend, Akbaknbr Abdul-Ahad, in May 2018 claiming both had shared “a sex tape and obscene photo” of her.
A judge dismissed her claims months later, according to People, and ordered Mari to pay the rapper more than $30,000.
