Law enforcement sources told the outlet that she was taken into custody on Tuesday for underage consumption as well as intoxication, and was promptly charged with a misdemeanor.
The charges apparently stem from an incident that occurred back in October, but an arrest warrant was delayed for unknown reasons and was only issued last week.
Her current jail stint is the second time the budding songstress has been incarcerated since her appearance back in 2013 on America’s Got Talent.
