Enrique Iglesias Arrested For Driving With a Suspended License

Enrique Iglesias is in trouble with the law after an arrest that occurred back in May.

The 40-year-old singer is facing misdemeanor charges of obstruction of justice and driving with a suspended license after he was pulled over by a Florida Highway Patrol officer in Miami-Dade County on May 6, NBC Miami reports. According to the officer, Iglesias was driving a white Cadillac Escalade in the closed express lanes on Interstate 95 when he was pulled over. The "Hero" singer allegedly jumped into the back seat of the vehicle as the passenger, Abel Tabuyo, slid into the driver's side.

"It was Mr. Iglesias that was the initial driver, yes," Lt. Julio Pajon confirmed to the local news channel.

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.

Iglesias has been having a tough couple of months. A few weeks after his arrest, the musician was badly injured at a concert in Tijuana, Mexico when he grabbed a drone during his performance. He underwent reconstructive surgery in Los Angeles.
