TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Former ``American Idol'' finalist Jessica Sierra was arrested in Tampa today after a drunken confrontation with police and onlookers. Authorities charged the 22-year-old with disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest. Sierra is being held without bond.

This comes less than two weeks after she pleaded no contest to charges of battery and possession of cocaine. She's now facing charges for violating her parole on these earlier charges.

Sierra was supposed to be completing a drug-rehabilitation program to be televised nationally.
