U.S. Reality TV Star Nicole Richie Charged with DUI



Nicole Richie was charged Friday Feb 16, 2007 with misdemeanor driving under the influence.

Nicole Richie was on Friday Feb 16th charged with misdemeanor driving under the influence (DUI), stemming from her arrest in December 2006 when police said she was driving the wrong way on a Los Angeles freeway.

The case, additionally, also alleges the star had a prior misdemeanor DUI conviction in 2003 and according to California law, if convicted of a DUI twice within 10 years a person faces a sentence of 90 days to a year in jail, a fine between $390 and $1,000, and a suspension of driving privileges.

Police arrested Richie on December 11 when her car was found blocking a freeway car pool lane and she failed a sobriety test. Police said Richie told them she had smoked marijuana and taken the painkiller Vicodin.

Arraignment was scheduled for Feb. 21 in suburban Glendale Superior Court. And since the case is a misdemeanor one, Richie will not have to attend the hearing.
