*A mistrial was declared in Da Brat’s civil case because one of the jurors was found to have lied about his immigration status.

The rapper is being sued for allegedly smashing a rum bottle over the head of a former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader.

According to TMZ, one of the jurors is a legal resident of Atlanta but not a U.S. citizen. The man lied to the judge and swore three times under oath that he was an American citizen.

The irate judge berated the juror as he declared a mistrial and held him in contempt. He then ordered him straight to jail.

According to TMZ, the bogus juror cost the county $25,000.
