Jessica Sierra arrested and charged with intoxication, resisting arrest, violating parole

Jessica Sierra, the American Idol 4 finalist who was arrested in April for cocaine possession, has been arrested again. She “was charged Saturday with disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest and violating conditions of her parole on earlier felony battery and possession charges” and is “being held without bond,” the AP reports.

Late in November, “she pleaded no contest to charges of battery and possession of cocaine” and a judge “sentenced Sierra to 12 months probation and random drug screening,” the AP says.

Amusingly and ironically, Jessica is the only one of the nine quasi-celebrities that VH1 will confirm is appearing on the network’s upcoming series Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew in early January. Last week, clips of two participants, Jeff Conaway and Crazy Town’s Seth Binzer, appearing to use drugs surfaced on YouTube. The clips came from the series, and in one, “Conaway simulates snorting cocaine. Another shows a man ‘free-basing’ cocaine — or pretending to,” FOX News reported. Conaway, however, says, “By the way, this is pablum. I don’t want you to get the wrong idea.”
