On June 7, 2012, Kina was involved in a criminal incident in Lima when she was pulled over by a police patrol after she was leaving a nightclub called "El Dragon" in the district of Barranco. It was later determined that Malpartida had twice the amount of alcohol level permitted by Peruvian Law while operating a motor vehicle. She was subsequently charged by the D.A. office with a driving under the influence offense for which her driver's license was suspended for 12 months. After entering a guilty plea, she was also forced to pay a fine of 1.800 Nuevos Soles (around 600 U.S. dollars) and do community service hours.
