Singer Faith Evans is facing DUI charges in Los Angeles.  Police arrested Evans on suspicion of DUI Saturday night at a checkpoint in the Marina Del Rey neighborhood.  Los Angeles police sergeant Felipe Vasquez says the Grammy-winning vocalist showed signs of being under the influence at the time of her arrest.  She was held for around four hours before she was released and her vehicle was impounded.  Evans was previously arrested in Atlanta in 2004.  She and her record label executive husband Todd Russaw were charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine.  The 37-year-old singer was married to late rap legend Christopher Wallace, also known as the Notorious B.I.G.  She won a Grammy in 1998 for her contributions to a tribute song for him called “I’ll Be Missing You.” 

Evans has a reality TV series in the works as well as a new album slated for release in October.  She has appeared in the movie “The Fighting Temptations” with singer Beyoncé and actor Cuba Gooding Jr.  She has also worked with musicians Sean “Diddy” Combs and Whitney Houston.
