Brett Favre's sister faces charges after Mississippi meth bust

By Cindy Boren

Brett Favre's younger sister, Brandi, will be arraigned today in a Mississippi court on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine and generation of hazardous waste, both felonies.

Matt Karl of the Hancock County, Miss., sheriff's department, said officers are "very familiar" with Brandi Favre. According to the Associated Press, Favre was charged with unlawful use of a weapon in connection with a drive-by shooting at a motel in Slidell, La., in 1996. Three years later, she and two other women were booked for felony shoplifting. Upon completion of a program, her charges were erased.

Seems like little Ms. Favre has quite the history. Guess football at least took Brett away from that lifestyle, onto better things like sexual harassment.

You never want it said that the local authorities are "very familiar" with you.

Anyway, doesn't it seem every week we get one of these sad stories about an athlete's parent, sibling, child or other relation? Not sure what this accomplishes. It doesn't do anything for me. I prefer to base my Favre schadenfreude on the man himself.

Brandi Favre is a punk and a thug.

With a face like that she was destined to be a meth manufacturer.
