Enrique Iglesias Charged For Obstruction Of Justice And Driving With A Suspended License

Enrique Iglesias was arrested in Florida as he was driving with a suspended license in May. The singer was accused for obstruction of justice and driving with a suspended license after a traffic stop in Miami-Dade County.

ET reported that Enrique Iglesias is in legal trouble and faces misdemeanor charges after a Florida Highway Patrol officer caught him for obstruction of justice and driving with a suspended license in Miami-Dade County, on May 6.

The Florida Highway Patrol officer told that the 40-year-old singer was driving a white Cadillac Escalade in the closed express lanes on Interstate 95 in Miami-Dade County when he was pulled over, reported the source.

The source reported that Iglesias jumped into the passenger seat at the back of the vehicle, while his tour manager Abel Tabuyo moved to the driver’s seat.

“It was Mr. Iglesias that was the initial driver, yes,” the witness Lt. Julio Pajon confirmed to the local news channel – NBC 6 South Florida.

“Both Iglesias and Tabuyo were taken into custody and released after signing court-appearance commitments. They are to appear in court on July 10 and have entered not guilty pleas,” reported the source.

It was also reported that Iglesias was severely injured at a concert in Tijuana, Mexico, just a few weeks after the arrest in May. He was injured when he grabbed a drone during his performance at the concert. Following the injury, the singer also underwent a reconstructive surgery in Los Angeles.

E! Online reported that Iglesias invoked his Miranda rights and was charged of obstruction without violence and driving with a suspended license, immediately after Iglesias and Tabuyo were released after signing notices to appear in the court.

Enrique Iglesias is in legal trouble after the arrest. The “Hero” singer has been facing a tough time for the past two months.
