Barbra Streisand's Receptionist Busted

5/10/2009 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Barbra Streisand's receptionist needs people -- like criminal defense lawyer Blair Berk.

We've learned Tina Fortenberry was arrested for allegedly possessing cocaine and methamphetamines. She was also busted for possession of a dangerous weapon and for driving on a suspended license.

It happened Wednesday on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. Fortenberry was stopped for expired tags. After Sheriff's deputies stopped her they found the contraband inside her car.

The dangerous weapon in her car was a sap -- similar to nunchakus.

At the time of her arrest Fortenberry was carrying some mail for Babs that she was supposed to take to the post office. Someone who works for Barbara had to go to the Sheriff's department to retrieve it.

No word on who is answering Barbra's phones, but we hear Lily Tomlin needs work.

Barbara Streisand sure has a pretty mouth. Nice and wet. And warm too. I like the way she does it.

A sap is a weighted leather weapon that loops around your hand or wrist that cops used to carry. It is weighted with lead shot. You use it with a slapping motion, but it's nothing like Nunchukas which are two sticks connected with a chain that you swing at people.

Why oh why Babs do you need an enforcer with drugs and a slap sap, hmmm. Smug looking, expired tags...Babs will have her out in a couple days all charges will be gone. I let only close associates, those I trust, bring my mail to the post office. This broad looks like the go to gal, will get you anything you want...escorts, drugs, beat someone around the face for ya.
