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, ET can confirm. 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.
