Rapper arrested on DUI charges

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Rapper Kat Dahlia has been arrested on charges of DUI and resisting arrest without violence.

Dahlia, whose real name is Katriana Huguet, was arrested early Tuesday in Miami Beach. Jail records show she's being held on $2,000 bail. It's not immediately known if she has an attorney. Huguet turned 23 the day before her arrest.

The arrest affidavit reports that an officer spotted Huguet speeding with the headlights off and pulled her over.

The officer noticed a strong smell of alcohol in the car and noted that Huguet had blood shot eyes and her speech was slurred. She refused to perform any sobriety tests and cursed at the officer.

Huguet, of Cuban descent, is known for mixing rhythms like hip hop, R&B and soul.

Lawyer: 'Housewives' star targeted

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- An attorney for "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice says he believes the federal government is prosecuting her because she's a celebrity.

Attorney Henry Klingeman says federal prosecutors frequently target high-profile people to draw attention to their efforts.

Teresa and her husband, Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice, who also appears on the TV show, were indicted Monday on charges of bank and bankruptcy fraud. He is also charged with failing to file tax returns for five years.

On Tuesday, a magistrate in Newark set their bond at $500,000 each. They were also required to surrender their passports, and their travel was restricted to New Jersey and New York.

Their attorneys say both will plead not guilty.

Germany to Bieber: Pay monkey bill

BERLIN (AP) -- German authorities have posted a public notice urging Justin Bieber to get in touch with them about an unpaid bill for his former pet monkey Mally.

Bieber failed to produce the necessary vaccination and import papers for the monkey when he arrived for a European tour in March.

Mally became the property of the German government in May when the Canadian singer failed to claim his pet.

A spokesman for the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation says Bieber has one week to pay 1,130 euros ($1,500) for the monkey's care.

Franz Boehmer said Tuesday that otherwise customs officials "have ways of making him pay" next time he enters Germany.

Bieber is already on the hook for a separate 5,000-euro bill from Munich customs.

Actor apologizes for conduct

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) -- Actor Wes Studi is apologizing for his conduct toward police during his recent arrest for aggravated drunken driving in New Mexico.

A Santa Fe police officer's report says Studi was loud and vulgar toward officers. But Studi's statement of apology says officers "remained very professional" despite his behavior.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports Studi's statement issued Monday through a public relations firm also said he couldn't comment on his legal situation but that he was sorry for hurting family, friends and supporters.

Studi has pleaded not guilty. He was arrested early Friday after he was found with a car with two damaged tires in the middle of a street.

The Santa Fe resident appeared in "Dances with Wolves" and "The Last of the Mohicans," and has had roles in several TV shows.
