Rapper is fined and forced to wear alcohol detector

EVE has escaped a jail sentence after pleading no contest to a drink driving charge.

The rapper was fined $390 (£194) and has been forced to wear an alcohol detecting ankle bracelet for 45 days after crashing her car on Hollywood Boulevard.

She also faces 36 months of probation and must pay for repairs. If she drinks she could still face imprisonment.

In addition the rapper must attend 10 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, a three-month alcohol education programme and appear in court to verify that she is using the alcohol detection monitor, reports BBC News.

“This was handled like any other of our driving under the influence cases,” said Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for the LA‘s attorney’s office. “This was an appropriate sentence, we believe for the facts of this case.”
