According to  The BoomBox, R&B singer Teairra Mari found herself behind bars Friday (Aug. 19) after she was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, which lead to her crashing her vehicle, a silver Infiniti. Mari, born Teairra Marquisha Thomas, has since been released and issued a statement taking full responsibility for her actions.

Mari crashed her car into the rear of another vehicle while driving in the posh Beverly Hills early AM Friday. When police got to the scene of the car accident, TMZ reported that she showed visible signs of being intoxicated. Upon her arrest, she allegedly also became “combative” with an arresting officer and even gave one a “minor cut.”

She was released on $50K bail.

The singer released a statement apoligizing:

“Let me start by saying that this is a very embarrassing moment for me, I know that I’ve disappointed so many people including myself. I take full responsibility for my actions, but I absolutely did NOT ‘attack’ a Beverly Hills police officer and I’m very confused by those allegations. I did have drinks and I misjudged the situation by driving myself home. I want to apologize to those that I endangered that night and also to the people that I’ve let down. I hope that this situation can save someone from making the dumb decision to drink and drive!”
