A Mississippi television station is reporting that the sister of disgraced football star Brett Favre was among five people arrested at a meth laboratory in Diamondhead, Miss., on Wednesday.

WLOX-TV said that Han**** County authorities questioned several suspects after they witnessed a drug buy at a gas station. Those suspects led investigators to an alleged meth lab in a condominium complex, where five people, including Brandi Favre, were arrested.

Officials have not yet said what charges if any Brandi Favre and the others arrested at the condo complex face.

The suspects were taken to a nearby medical center for decontamination before they were taken to a lockup. A hazardous materials team removed toxic chemicals from the condominium that house the lab.

This was not Brandi Favre's first arrest: In 1999, she was charged with felony shoplifting after she was accused of stealing clothes from a department store.

In 1996, Brandi Favre was also 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 stricken from her record.

Brett Favre, who has indicated that he will not return to the NFL for the 2011 season, has been mired in scandal this year. Deadspin reported last year that Favre sent X-rated crotch shots to TV and Internet personality Jenn Sterger in 2008, when Favre was the Jets quarterback and Sterger was the Jets' sideline reporter. Commissioner Roger Goodell fined Favre $50,000 for not cooperating with the NFL's investigation into the allegations.

Two former Jets masseuses also filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Favre and the Jets this month.

She's been a criminal since 1996, is this really a surprise to anyone?

But because of Favre's situation, this will get blown out of proportion and probably force him into hiding and not return next year.

I think the media should leave their stories completely to the sole family member that is the celebrity and view the rest of their family as off limits.

She seems to be like many of millions of people caught up in the drug community and having her story plastered all over the local news and papers isn't gonna help her.

Or actually, maybe the humiliation will get her the much needed help she needs.

Who knows? But I say leave the family members be.

I agree, instead of putting his name out there just because it's his sister, leave him out of it! He obviously has his own problems.... :noidea:
