ATLANTA, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- R & B singer Faith Evans, once married to slain rapper Notorious B.I.G., has been arrested in Georgia on drug charges.

CNN reports Evans and her husband-manager Todd Russaw were charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine, with Evans also charged with having an improper vehicle tag. They were arrested in Hapeville, south of Atlanta, near Hartsfield-Jackson airport.
