Richie Got Off Easy

April 22, 2008 / Posted by:

Richie Sambora was charged with DUI today, but was not charged with a misdemeanor child endangerment count. Richie was arrested last month in Laguna Beach for driving drunk. His 10-year-old daughter with Heather Locklear was in the car.

TMZ reports that Richie plea bargained his way out today. The driving under the influence charge was dropped and he pled no contest to driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher.

Richie will pay around $1,600 for fines and penalties. He’ll be put on 3 years probation and must complete a booze ed course. He also can’t drink or do drugs while on probation. Well, he can’t get caught at least. Switch the piss!

TMZ also claims the prosecutor on the case is some softy who didn’t file child endangerment charges, because he wanted a little PR.

I think I would rather do hard time for a few weeks than have to not drink for 3 whole damn years. How is that even possible! I mean, what do you drink with dinner? Water? Sick!

Well, Richie got off easy. He’s the one that still has to look himself in the mirror every day. Seriously, that’s a major punishment, because his face is fug.
