Faith Evans isn’t sweating her drunk-driving rap—despite the fact that, if convicted, she could land in the slammer for six months.

Interviewed on Mutha Knows, Notorious B.I.G.‘s widow, who snagged a Grammy in 1998 for the single I’ll Be Missing You, speaks out about the misdemeanor DUI charges stemming from her Aug. 21 arrest near the Marina Del Rey section of Los Angeles.

“It wasn’t really a big situation. Actually, I live near Venice Beach, and anybody that lives out here knows there’s these checkpoints every single week in there, so I pass it all the time,” Faith tells host Mutha.

“This night in particular they just decided to ask everybody that turned to pull over. And they asked me had I been drinking.

“I just came from a fitting for a photo shoot and I said, ‘Well, I had a couple glasses of wine.’ Maybe I shouldn’t have said that. As soon as I got out the car to walk with the officer, they drove my car away.

“I went to jail for a couple hours. I got out, went home, took a nap, got in the shower and I was at my video shoot the next morning,” adds the R&B diva, whose new album, Something about Faith, drops Oct. 5.

“I’m not sure what the outcome is gonna be. But it can’t be anything too serious. It was the first offense in terms of any DUI or anything like that.

“It’s not like I was driving and pulled over for driving a certain way. It was a checkpoint.”
