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 (26.04.07).
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.
