Brett Favre's sister arrested at Meth Lab
DIAMONDHEAD, Miss. — The sister of Vikings quarterback Brett Favre faces drug charges after she was arrested Wednesday in a raid on a condo where people were making crystal methamphetamine, authorities said.
Brandi Favre, 34, was among five people arrested in Diamondhead, Miss., and was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and generating hazardous waste, said Hancock County Sheriff's Maj. Matt Karl.
The four other suspects ranged in age from 25 to 53.
About nine grams of the drug — worth about $1,000 — was recovered and hazardous materials teams had to clear the condo, Karl said.
Brandi Favre was in custody and has an initial court appearance scheduled Thursday morning.
The arrest was first reported by WLOX-TV in Biloxi.
It is not the first time Brandi Favre has been in trouble with the law.
In 1999, Favre, her sister-in-law and another woman were booked with felony shoplifting. In 1996, she was charged with unlawful use of a weapon in connection with a drive-by shooting at a motel in Slidell, La. At the time she was a student at Southern Mississippi, where Brett Favre played.
She completed a program in Louisiana that allowed her criminal charges to be erased.
Karl said officers are "very familiar" with Favre. "She's always in trouble," he said.
Looks like both the Favre siblings are making money.
