LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) Grammy-winning R&B singer Faith Evans may be planning a comeback after being out of the game for about five years, but getting arrested for suspicion of drunk driving probably wasn't part of the plan to get her name in the news.
Evans, the widow of rapper Notorious B.I.G., was reportedly driving near Marina del Rey, Calif., just outside Los Angeles, late Saturday night when she was stopped at drunk driving checkpoint, according to Officer Cleon Joseph of the LAPD.
The 35-year-old songstress, who is now married to record exec Todd Russaw, was held for a few hours before being released on bail Sunday morning. Her car was impounded.
As for her comeback plan, a reality show, titled "It's All About Faith" is reportedly in production, and a new album is scheduled for release in October. Evans won a Grammy in 1998 for the song "I'll Be Missing You," written in memory of her then husband "Biggie Smalls" who had been gunned down the year before in a drive-by shooting. His murder has never been solved.
