NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - A former contestant on "American Idol" and "Fear Factor" is accused of distributing heroin.
News outlets report 31-year-old Antonella Barba was arrested Thursday by authorities in Norfolk, Virginia, and charged with distributing more than 100 grams of the drug. She's set to appear in court Monday. Barba, of New Jersey, reached the top 16 on "American Idol" in 2007 and competed on "Fear Factor" in 2012.
