Rapper Eve has been arrested on suspicion of Driving Under the
Influence after crashing her car. The rapper and actress - who
starred in XXX alongside Vin Diesel - narrowly escaped
death after she drove her gold Maserati into the central
reservation on Hollywood Boulevard at around 2.45am yesterday
The star - full name Eve Jeffers - was handcuffed by police and
taken in a squad car to the Los Angeles County Jail. A witness
said: "She was visibly upset. The car was totalled." There were
reportedly two passengers in the vehicle at the time.
In a bizarre twist, Eve was visited in jail by Oscar-winning
actor Sean Penn, who was seen leaving the police station in a taxi
at 4am. A police source told gossip website TMZ.com: "He came to
see how Eve was doing." It is not known if Penn had been out with
Eve earlier that night. The Grammy-award winning artist - who has
her own self-titled sitcom - was later released on bail and picked
up in another Maserati.
