TMZ has learned that rapperista/actress Eve was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after she crashed her gold Maserati on Hollywood Boulevard.

Eve (real name: Eve Jeffers) was driving in Hollywood around 2:45 AM Thursday when she hit the center divider, totaling the front of her car. TMZ was on the scene, and observed that after cops arrived, they placed her in handcuffs, and (according to our staffers) she was "visibly upset" as they led her into a squad car. We've learned that there were two people in the car with Eve at the time.

The multiplatinum-selling Grammy winner starred with Vin Diesel in "XXX" and had her own self-titled sitcom on the UPN.

Eve LeavesTMZ is standing by at the Hollywood division, Los Angeles Police Department.

UPDATE: TMZ has confirmed that Eve has just posted $30,000 bail and was released from Los Angeles County Jail. The rapper covered her face, as she was picked by yet another Maserati.

what the hell? why did they have to charge her so much money to get out? they dont charge average people like that. is it just because she has a little bit of money? i think that is totally unfair to her. she should get treated and fined just like any ordinary, average person.

Why do these people have to get behind the wheel of a car after drinking? Can't they call a limo driver or a damn cab?

All it would take is for ONE judge to throw the book at one of these celebs, then maybe they would get the hint.
