Nivea, who was previously married to The-Dream, reportedly crashed her Mercedes into a tree trunk which had fallen down following a recent storm in the area, according to
When cops arrived at the scene, she allegedly had "bloodshot, glassy eyes and smelled like alcohol (sic)" and claimed she had failed to see yellow police tape directing drivers away from the hazard.
The singer was taken in by cops but insists she only had three drinks throughout the evening and was not drunk at the time of the incident.
An unnamed child passenger was unhurt in the collision.
