Those crazy wanna-be Idols of America.

Perhaps you remember Antonella Barba. Heck, many guys are still probably searching for Antonella Barba nude photos today. That sexy singer is a tough one to forget.

So is Olivia Mojica. This former American Idol star has taken Barba's antics a step further and filmed a sex tape with an ex-boyfriend. It hits the market on Thursday.

Now, yet another past Idol contestant is in the news for less than pure reasons: Jessica Sierra was arrested on drug possession and felony battery charges early Sunday in Tampa.

Sierra, 21, allegedly hit a man over the head with a heavy glass at a café and was booked at the Hillsborough County Jail on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, the Associated Press reports.

The ex-American Idol hopeful was also charged with possession of cocaine and introduction of contraband into a correctional facility after officers found a small amount of the drug while searching her, a police spokeswoman told the AP.

The victim of the alleged battery suffered a cut over his eye, but no further details were available. Sierra was released Sunday afternoon on $11,500 bail.

This isn't the first time the singer has faced legal trouble, although she was in the Hilary Duff-like position of victim last time: a 59-year-old California man was charged with stalking Jessica after police said he left voicemail messages telling her he loved her and was willing to go to jail for her; he also sent her jewelry and dozens of long-stemmed roses after seeing her on Idol.

Aside from oral sex photos, love-making videos and now drug possession and assault, other American Idol crimes against humanity include the singing of Sanjaya Malakar.
