Malika Haqq Ordered To Attend AA Meetings After DUI Arrest
Malika Haqq has been ordered to attend AA meetings in the wake of her DUI arrest.
As Gossip Cop reported, the “Dash Dolls” star was arrested last month after crashing her car on California’s 101 Freeway. Police on the scene said she showed “objective symptoms of intoxication,” and she was taken into custody after failing a field sobriety test. She was ultimately released from jail on a $30,000 bond.
Now Haqq, who suffered minor injuries in the accident, is facing misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol level above .08. It’s not clear what her alcohol level actually was. She will be formally arraigned next week.
In the meantime, a judge has ordered her to start attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings twice a week, reports TMZ. It’s possible Haqq’s cooperation could lead to a favorite plea deal agreement. She is also a first-time offender.
In the wake of the arrest, Haqq apologized to fans. She posted on Twitter, “I never imagined I would have to apologize for poor behavior and today I am thankful to be alive to say I’m sorry for my actions. My bruises don’t meet my shame. Learn from the error in my ways…Save others, Save yourself. #BeSafe.” On Friday night, she attended Kris Jenner’s 60th birthday party along with her twin sister Khadijah and best friend Khloe Kardashian.
