Queen Latifah was arrested for drug and weapons charges after she was stopped for speeding in California and a loaded gun and marijuana were found in the vehicle.
Latifah later confessed the incident was unfortunate and reflected a downward spiral resulting from a car-jacking and the continuing feelings of loss over her brother's death.
She said of the incident: "I made decisions that I regret, and I took them as learning experiences... I'm human, not perfect, like anybody else." Latifah later entered guilty pleas and was fined for the incident.
