Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre’s sister, Brandi Favre, was arrested Wednesday in a drug raid on a Mississippi condo. She was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and generating hazardous waste.
Nine grams of the drug were discovered in the condo and Karl described the chemical smell as “overwhelming,” according to CBS News. Hazardous materials teams cleared the condo and officials evacuated seven neighboring units.
Brandi Favre, 34, is currently in custody and scheduled to make a court appearance Thursday, the Washington Post reports.
“We bought some meth off of an individual and that’s what led us to this location here,” said Hancock County Sheriff’s Maj. Matt Karl, who added that authorities are “very familiar” with Brandi Favre because she is “always in trouble.”
Brandi Favre was charged with unlawful use of a weapon in connection with a drive-by shooting in 1996, but she completed a program that allowed the criminal charges to be erased. In 1999, Brandi Favre, her sister-in-law, and another woman were busted for felony shoplifting.
Brandi Favre’s meth-related arrest took place two weeks after Brett Favre was fined $50,000 by the NFL for his failure to comply with the league’s investigation into his communication with Jenn Sterger in 2008. Favre was accused of attempting to seduce Sterger by sending inappropriate text messages and photos of his genitalia.
