R&B singer Faith Evans‘ big comeback was slightly tarnished over the weekend when it was reported that she had been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Los Angeles Saturday night (Aug 21).

According to various news reports, the Grammy Award winning entertainer was cuffed after being stopped at a DUI checkpoint near the Marina Del Ray section of the city.

Her car was impounded and she was held in police custody for a few hours before being released on bail early Sunday morning.

After the reports spread like wildfire, Faith took to her Twitter Sunday evening to address the situation and let everyone know that she is “fine and well” and will be pressing on with the filming of her new music video for her new single “Gone Already.”

Check out what she told her Twitter followers about her recent arrest below:

“Hi Faithfuls…I am on the set of my new video for my single “Gone Already”. I’m sure by now most of you heard that I was detained on suspicion of a DUI. After completing a full day of wardrobe prep I was stopped at a random checkpoint. I’m fine and well, and thank you for your prayers, kind words and concerns. I can’t wait for you all to see my new video & look forward to hearing from u guys…Fizzy”

Meanwhile, Evans is currently filming a reality series titled “All About Faith” chronicling her life and her return to the music scene. It’s unclear as to whether or not camera crews were around for this particular incident though.
