Singer/reality star faces possible jail time

Remember Teairra Mari's little run-in with an Uber driver earlier this summer? Well, it turns out the singer/reality star won't be walking away from the incident without a charge. 

 

Teairra has been charged with battery and theft (both misdemeanors) for allegedly punching the driver over a phone charger. TMZ also reports she's been hit with a vandalism charge.

The incident occurred back in July when she asked the driver if she could use his charger for her iPhone and he said no. He claims she became upset and began punching him and grabbed the charger. When she refused to get out of the car, authorities were called to the scene.

 

Teairra alleged she only "tapped" the driver and said that he was very rude to her.

 

If convicted, Teairra faces the possibility of jail time.
