Saturday night's incident was not the former "First Lady of Hip Hop's" first run-in with the law.

Back in 2004, Evans along with husband, Todd Russaw, were arrested on drug possession charges in Atlanta. To avoid going to trial and ultimately jail time, Evans entered a drug-abuse intervention program in 2004, reported MTV.
The singer won a Grammy along with Diddy and 112 for her hit song, "I'll Be Missing You," a tribute to her late husband Christopher Wallace, the Notorious B.I.G.
Evans is scheduled to release a new album in October and has reality TV show about her life in the works, said the AP.
