According to reports, R&B singer Nivea was arrested for a DUI in Atlanta, Georgia this past Sunday. Apparently, she left the wedding reception for Latoya Carter and rapper MempHitz intoxicated. She then drove her car into a tree with her 19 month-old son on board:
According to law enforcement sources … Nivea was on the road around 1:30 AM on Sunday when she plowed her ’06 Mercedes right into a tree that had fallen into the road during a recent storm.
We’re told when cops arrived at the scene, Nivea had “bloodshot, glassy eyes and smelled like alcohol.” Nivea told police she only had 3 drinks earlier in the evening … and didn’t see the bright yellow crime tape and the traffic cones directing cars away from the downed tree. Nivea was eventually arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and reckless driving. [Source]
Sources close to her say she wasn’t under the influence. Fortunately, the baby (Neal Carter) wasn’t physically injured during the car accident.
