Sugarbabes star Amelle Berrabah arrived in Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court, but the outcome? It wasn’t good. The singer who was arrested back in September on suspicion of drunk driving was convicted and sentenced to a $3,000.00 fine at a 14-month driving ban.
Dressed modestly in a pair of black pants and a gray silk button down, the glamorous pop star had a strained expression on her face upon her arrival, keeping her eyes low to the ground. The star has reportedly tried to use the old fame as a defense, arguing that Berrabah would find the difficulty of public transportation because of her celebrity status, to which the judge suggested that she start taking taxis.
For her part, Amelle who went to rehab just last year, citing severe nervous exhaustion says she’s sorry for her exceptionally silly actions. With no license for over a year, we’d be awfully sorry too.
