The arrest occurred less than two weeks after Vikings quarterback Brett Favre was fined $50,000 by the NFL and then sued by two masseuses who say he sexually harassed them.

Brandi Favre, 34, wearing orange prison scrubs and a GAP sweat shirt with her hands cuffed in front of her, was in the courtroom less than 10 minutes.

Hancock County Justice Court Judge Tom Carver Sr. agreed to arraign Favre before her co-defendants because of the attention she drew.

Favre had been jailed on $40,000 bond on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine and generating hazardous waste.

Favre was arrested during a raid on a Mississippi condo where people were making crystal meth, according to police.

The 34-year-old was among five people arrested Wednesday in Diamondhead, located about 60 miles northeast of New Orleans, and was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and generating hazardous waste, said Hancock County Sheriff's Maj. Matt Karl.

Hazardous materials teams had to clear the condo, Karl said. According to WLOX, he described the chemical smell in the condo as "overwhelming," causing officials to evacuate seven neighboring units.

Karl said officers are "very familiar" with her. "She's always in trouble," he said.
