Benaissa, 26, was set to perform at the nachtleben club on Sunday evening when police arrested here around 11 pm, the paper reported.
“Ms. Benaissa has appeared before the custodial judge,” southeast Hessian police spokesperson Michael Rösch told Bild, though he refused to provide details of the charges against her. “She has been imprisoned on remand.”
The manager for the four-girl band also refused to comment on the incident, the paper said.
Benaissa, who has a past with addiction and theft, joined No Angels after the band was formed during a television talent casting show in 2000. The band has since sold some five million albums, but tanked at the Eurovision Song Contest in May 2008, taking 23rd place out of the 25 countries that participated.
