Xzibit Charged with DUI Just Hours after Saying “I DO”

This past Sunday, Xzibit married the love of his life, Krista Joiner, near Laguna Beach, CA.  The groom, Xzibit, real name Alvin Nathaniel Joiner must have been feeling the love in the air because the rapper, actor, and TV host allegedly enjoyed one too many glasses of champaign at his wedding reception… when he and his bride drove off into the sunset, Xzibit was pulled over and arrested for DUI.  Wedding night bummer!

Police claim the, “Pimp My Ride” MTV show host was speeding in Laguna the night of his arrest.  When pulled over, the arresting officer said Xzibit reeked of booze.  After a short DUI (driving under the influence) investigation the officer arrested the 40 year-old american rapper and hauled him into the local police station for DUI.

The following day, Xzibit wrote about his memorable wedding day saying, “There was a time I thought I would NEVER get married,” he continued. “I thought that being single was the only way for me, not knowing that I was giving up more of myself to people who didn’t care about me or love me unconditionally. I had to do a LOT of growing up and over time came the maturity I needed to be able to make a commitment stronger than anything that I have done in my life outside of being a father to my two beautiful sons. Yesterday, I made my family complete.”  Xzibit made no mention of his DUI arrest… smart move on his part, if he mentioned his DUI arrest he could have potentially written some incriminating statements.  DUI defense attorneys are more likely to get better case results for individuals who do not incriminate themselves.
