'American Idol' finalist arrested for cocaine and battery

A former "American Idol" finalist was arrested Sunday on felony battery charges after she allegedly hit a man on the head with a heavy glass, police said.
Jessica Sierra, 21, a top-10 contestant on the hit show in 2005, was booked in the Hillsborough County Jail on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

She was also charged with possession of cocaine and introduction of contraband into a correctional facility after booking officers found a "small amount of cocaine" while searching her, Tampa police spokeswoman Andrea Davis said in a statement.
Davis said the incident happened at a Tampa cafe about 1:52AM Sunday. The victim suffered a cut over his eye, but the spokeswoman offered no further information. Sierra, of Tampa, was freed on $11,500 bond Sunday afternoon. Article here.
