Rapper Xzibit Charged with 2 Counts of DUI
DUI and needs to face a judge for his plea.
Xzibit was arrested following his wedding reception in Laguna Beach, California in 2014. On the weekend of his wedding to Krista Joiner, he was stopped by authorities for speeding and later charged with a DUI after failing a Breathalyzer test. He was twice the legal limit at .14, according to TMZ.
According to the police, "the officer contacted the driver and smelled alcohol. This started a driving under the influence investigation which ended with the arrest of Alvin Nathaniel Joiner." He was cuffed and was taken to the station.
Xzibit will most likely pay a base fine of $390 - $1,000 and substantially increased by penalties and assessments. Usually, the prosecutor will allow a minimum base fine on a first offense DUI. His license will also be suspended beginning the day of his conviction as well as needing to complete a 3-month alcohol program called "AB541."
