Enrique Iglesias To Face Charges For Obstruction and Usage Of Outdated Driver’s Licence
It’s been a rough couple of weeks for Enrique Iglesias. First he slices his hand with a camera drone, and now the “El Perdón” singer is reportedly due in court July 10 to contest misdemeanor charges of obstruction without violence and driving with a suspended license.
According to reports from the Florida Highway Patrol obtained by NBC Miami, the alleged incident occurred in Miami-Dade County, where Iglesias lives, on May 6. The Spanish heartthrob is said to have been driving northbound along Interstate 95 in a closed express lane when he was pulled over by a trooper.
The arrest affidavit cited by NBC Miami states that as they were getting pulled over, Iglesias and his passenger, identified as Iglesias’ tour manager Abel Tabuyo, switched seats in the Cadillac Escalade.
Both Iglesias and Tabuyo were handcuffed and Iglesias reportedly invoked his Miranda rights (also known as “the right to remain silent”). The two were later released after agreeing to appear in court and both allegedly pled not guilty to the charges.
