Reality Star Offered Three Years Probation For Alleged Assault On Uber Driver
Love & Hip Hop Hollywood’s Teairra Mari has rejected a no-jail plea deal in her Uber driver assault and theft case, BOSSIP can reveal.
Instead, Teairra Mari stuck to her guns that she’s innocent, and will take her chances at trial.
Last summer, an Uber driver claimed that during a ride, Teairra Mari went nuts on him, stealing his iPhone charger, punching him and then refused to get out of the car until the cops showed up.
Teairra Mari was arrested and charged with assault and battery, petty theft and vandalism. The punishment for the petty theft charge alone is up to six months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine.
Prosecutors offered the “Sponsor” singer, whose real name is Teairra Marie Thomas, a deal of three years probation, an order to stay away from the alleged victim, 30 days of anger management classes and 15 days of community service, according to transcripts obtained by BOSSIP. The offer also stipulated that she pay restitution to the alleged victim.
But Teairra Mari nixed the deal, and her lawyer, Steven Szocs, said there would be more evidence coming out that showed the driver was a criminal with four felony cases, who’d used several aliases over the years to rack up a string of arrests in California.
We’ve reached out to Szocs for comment.
She’s due back in court in April.
