A former “American Idol” and “Fear Factor” contestant was arrested in Norfolk for distributing heroin.
Barba, 31, was arrested and charged with heroin distribution of more than 100 grams in Virginia on Thursday, according to the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office.
She is being held in jail without bond, and is scheduled to appear in court Monday morning.
The Norfolk (Virginia) City Jail’s website shows Barba was arrested for selling or intending to sell 100 grams or more of heroin, a charge that carries a minimum of five years in prison and as much as 40, according to Virginia law.
TMZ reports Antonella Barba was arrested Thursday and is currently in jail until her court appearance next week.
She was also arrested for shoplifting in New York City in 2011.
She was charged with two misdemeanors at the time.
Barba’s latest national television appearance was on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on May 21 when she took part in an all-Idol contestant spoof of 1985’s “We Are the World.”
