Rapper Eve will be charged on Friday in connection with a drunken driving accident in Hollywood, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office said.
The Grammy-winning artist, whose real name is Eve Jihan Jeffers, was arrested April 26 after she crashed her gold Maserati into a center divider. There were no injuries.
She was arrested at the scene, and later freed from jail after posting $30,000 bail.
She will be charged with driving under the influence, with registering a blood alcohol limit in excess of 0.08 percent, and not showing proof of insurance, an official said on Thursday. He declined to say what her blood alcohol reading was. She is scheduled to be arraigned on May 17.
Offenders usually face probation of three to five years, a minimum fine of $390 and an alcohol treatment program.
Eve, 28, won a Grammy in 2001 for her collaboration with pop singer Gwen Stefani on the rap tune “Let Me Blow Ya Mind.” She starred with Vin Diesel in the action movie “XXX” and had her own sitcom on the now-defunct UPN network.
