    EW reports that singer Faith Evans, the widow of the late Biggie Smalls, was arrested August 21 in LA for alleged DUI. A Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson confirmed the news to the magazine. According to the LAPD, Miss Evans was arrested at a sobriety checkpoint at 10:40 PM last night, booked and released this morning after spending the evening in jail.

    However, Evans did not loudly proclaim her innocence. Instead, she issued the statement below to her fans, which was provided to EW via an email. She neither confirms nor denies the allegations against her. In fact, she seems sort of coy.

    "I'm sure some of you heard that I was arrested last night for suspicion of a DUI," Evans wrote today in a statement addressed to her fans and provided to EW. "I was @ the salon trying on wigs and hair pieces (hence the cornrows)…just chilling…and was stopped at a checkpoint…everyone who turned down this one street was pulled over and taken to jail. I'm fine and well, and looking forward to hearing from you guys on how you like my new single."

    What do you think about Evans' nonchalant reaction to her arrest?
