Reality Star Accused Of Assaulting & Stealing From Cab Driver
A judge has declared a mistrial in Love & Hip Hop Hollywood’s Teairra Mari’s Uber driver robbery and assault case – but it’s for an unusual reason.
The judge last week called a mistrial on the singer’s case after he became ill and could no longer preside over it, a spokeswoman from the LA County District Attorney’s Office told us.
The driver said Teairra – who was born Teairra Marie Thomas – went nuts on him during a ride last year, stealing his iPhone charger, pummeling him, and then refusing to get out of the car until the cops showed up.
The case was in the midst of trial until the judge got sick, though its not clear what he is suffering from. Now, jury selection will begin again next month, and the case will be reheard in November. She’s facing charges of battery on a transit employee, petty theft and vandalism. If convicted, Teairra faces up to two and a half years in prison.
Earlier this year, prosecutors offered her a no-jail plea deal of probation and anger management, but Ray J’s ex chose to take her chances at trial.
We’ve reached out to Teairra Mari’s lawyer, Steven Szocs, for comment.
