Tulisa due in court over drink driving Ferrari smash

By | Published on Thursday 31 March 2016


Tulisa Contostavlos is free on bail pending a court hearing on charges of drink driving and dangerous driving, it has been revealed. The singer was charged earlier this month having been initially arrested in London last September after she crashed her Ferrari into another car outside Southgate tube station.

The former N-Dubz member had reportedly only picked up her £199,000 sports car days before the crash. She collided with an elderly couple’s Saab shortly before midnight on 10 Sep and was arrested at the scene after being breathalysed, spending almost 24 hours in custody before being released.

Police confirmed yesterday that Contostavlos was charged on 7 Mar. She is now due to appear at Highbury Magistrates Court on 4 Apr. If convicted she faces a driving ban of at least a year. She could also be ordered to retake her driving test or even be jailed.
