The 28-year-old artist, real name is Danielle Leigh Curiel, was taken into custody around 8:15am Tuesday at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center near Miami International Airport after allegedly trying to flee the scene of the crash.

According to a police report obtained by DailyMail.com, DaniLeigh, who began her career as a backup dancer, was allegedly speeding and swerving in Miami Beach early this morning before striking a motorist on a moped.
