R&B Snippets: Teairra Mari & Stevie Wonder!
TEAIRRA MARI FACING POSSIBLE FELONY CHARGE: TMZ has reported that Teairra Mari is facing a possible felony charge in her New York DWI case. The site says that prosecutors are pushing to upgrade her DWI charge from misdemeanor to felony because of a previous conviction of a DWI in Los Angeles back in 2011. As previously reported, Teairra was arrested on June 22nd after police saw her Dodge Charger come out of the Midtown Tunnel in NYC, missing a front wheel. Officers said that her bumper was also dragging on the ground, which resulted in sparks flying around her car. She was arrested for a DWI and driving without a suspended license. DMV records also show that her license is either suspended or revoked.
