American Idol, and her only recorded song is her rendition of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" on the Idol finalist disc from that season, and until now she's been best known as the target of a stalker who showed up at her grandma's house-- so the fact that she was arrested over the weekend for smashing a cocktail glass on a guy's head probably isn't worth the international attention it's receiving.
But damn, that Jessica Sierra sure makes for a stunning mugshot, doesn't she?
(The mugshot's on the right...)
Poor Jessica, who reportedly has been working as a Hooters waitress in Florida, was busted early Sunday morning by police in Tampa. Police say she was "uncooperative"when they led her away-- and that they had to threaten to shackle her legs because she threatened to kick out the windows of the patrol car.
Jessica was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and cocaine possession. And we've got to feel bad for a performer whose mugshot looks better than her publicity still. It could be a Fergie album cover, no?
(FUN FACT: Hooters and American Idol have a strange affinity this season. Sanjaya Malakar's sister Shyamali was a Hooters waitress in Tacoma, Washington, Top 6 finalist Chris Richardson worked his way up to kitchen supervisor at a Hooters restaurant in Chesapeake, Virginia, and Haley Scarnato should consider a career at one close to her home.)
