Eve charged with DUI
Prosecutors filed misdemeanor charges Friday against Eve stemming from a traffic accident in Hollywood last week. Eve, whose real name is Jihan Jeffers, was charged with driving under the influence, driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or above, and failure to provide proof of insurance, said Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for the city attorney's office. The charges stem from an April 26 arrest in which officers stopped Eve at 2:40 a.m. after her car struck a raised concrete center median on Hollywood Boulevard. A breath test showed her blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit, Mateljan said. Eve, 28, is scheduled to be arraigned May 17. She faces a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. Mateljan said a statutory minimum sentence would include a minimum of three years' probation, a fine of at least $390, and an alcohol education program, among other DUI-related conditions. Phone messages left Friday for Eve's publicist, Amanda Silverman, and her attorney, Matthew Johnson, were not immediately returned. Eve won a Grammy in 2001 for the single "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" with Gwen Stefani.
