Teairra Mari Portrait Session

Love & Hip-Hop star Teairra Mari had a bench warrant issued for her arrest, TMZ reports.

According to the news outlet, Mari didn’t show up for a court date in L.A. on Monday, so the judge wasted no time taking matters into his own hands.

The site also reports the reason she was scheduled to be in court—and it’s a doozy. The reality show star allegedly attacked an Uber driver last year after he refused to allow her to use his phone charger.

From TMZ:

“The drive started ok, but went to hell when Teairra asked the driver if she could use his charger for her iPhone. He said no, and she got pissed. The driver claims she began punching him and grabbed the charger. He pulled over, she refused get out, and the cops were called.

“Teairra says she never tried stealing his charger, says she only ‘tapped him’ and he was beyond rude and told her to get out of the car like she was a ‘f***ing prostitute.’”

TMZ said police were called and allegedly found the driver’s phone charger in Mari’s purse upon arrival. She faces charges for battery and theft.

Mari reportedly told the site that her absence from court was an accident, saying she wrote down the wrong time. Her court date has been rescheduled for this morning (June 14).
