It is being reported by Yahoo! Sports that Brett Favre's sister, Brandi Favre, has been arrested. Brandi Favre appeared in a Mississippi courtroom and was jailed on $40,000 bond only a day after she was arrested during a methamphetamine bust.

Brandi Favre, 34, was in the courtroom just 10 minutes before Hancock County Justice Court Judge Tom Carver Sr. set the $40,000 bond on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine and also generating hazardous waste.

If Brandi Favre is convicted, she can face up to $1 million in fines and can also face up to 30 years in prison on each count.

Favre was among five people arrested in Wednesday's bust.

The raid took place at a condo in Diamondhead, Mississippi, and the Hancock County Sheriff Matt Karl stated that a meth lab was found in the bathroom.

Karl also stated that this was not the first time that deputies had encountered Brandi Favre. In 1999 Favre was booked for felony shoplifting. In 1996, Favre was connected to a drive-by shooting.

Brett Favre has yet to release a statement regarding his younger sister's arresting.

This is just another controversy that the former Vikings quarterback will be forced to deal with.

It has been a tough year on Brett Favre, who had a disappointing season with the Vikings. Favre's consecutive starts streak was snapped and No. 4 was also fined $50,000 dollars for not cooperating in an NFL investigation regarding a Jets' reporter.
