Lindsay Lohan's mother has been ordered to perform 100 hours of community service.
Dina Lohan pled guilty in court in Long Island, New York on Tuesday morning to Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and speeding last September. Along with her community service, Dina must attend a mandatory drinking and driving program, a victim impact panel, and pay the necessary fines and fees.
The 51 year old is also expected to have her license revoked and an interlock device will be installed in her car, according to gossip website TMZ.com. The Lindsay star was initially arrested for driving at "a speed of 77 mph in a 55mph zone" and police then discovered her blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.
Shortly afterwards, her lawyer Mark Heller attempted to blame the paparazzi for the incident. "It is the professional opinion, as stated here by the evaluator, that the circumstances leading to Dina's arrest were largely impacted by ongoing daily stresses caused by you folks, the paparazzi, media attention and distorted tabloid character profiles," he said.
Justin Bieber is close to reaching a plea deal in his driving under the influence (DUI) case.
The "Boyfriend" hitmaker was arrested in Miami in January and charged with DUI, resisting arrest and possessing an invalid driver's license, but all three charges will be dropped if he pleads no contest to reckless driving, TMZ reports.
It was previously claimed the 20-year-old star - who will receive a year's probation as part of the agreement - would refuse a plea deal if it involved being subjected to random drug testing, but the proposal from prosecutors does not include this as a condition.
Justin was driving a rented yellow Lamborghini when police stopped him for allegedly drag racing. Toxicology test results later showed the singer had traces of marijuana and Xanax in his system at the time of the arrest.
Chris Pine has pleaded guilty to drink driving.
The Star Trek actor was fined $93 and had his driver's license suspended for six months during a court hearing at the Ashburton district court in New Zealand today. Chris' lawyer, Marilyn Gilchrist, had applied for the star to be discharged without conviction after claiming he had already suffered emotionally and professionally because of the worldwide negative coverage of his crime. The judge, Joanna Maze, said she accepted Chris was "entirely remorseful" of his actions as he had pleaded guilty to the charge at the earliest opportunity and had complied with the police.
The 33-year-old star was stopped by officers in a "routine operation" in Methven, Canterbury, New Zealand, on March 1 and was arrested after tests revealed his blood-alcohol level was 0.11 per cent, which is over New Zealand's legal limit of 0.08 per cent.
Chris was in the country filming Z for Zachariah and had been out celebrating the end of the shoot, the night before he was arrested.
Justin Bieber has been offered a plea deal from the Florida State Attorney.
The 19-year-old star, who is scheduled to appear in court in Miami on March 3 after being charged with driving under the influence (DUI), driving with an expired license and resisting arrest last month, will have most of the charges dropped if he agrees to plead no contest to reckless driving and submits to random drug testing for up to nine months to avoid facing a stint in jail. A law enforcement source told gossip website TMZ.com that prosecutors will drop the DUI and resisting arrest charges if the "Baby" hitmaker also completes 40 hours of community service, attends an alcohol education course and a "victim impact panel" to hear relatives of DUI victims share their stories.
Police officers want Justin Bieber to face felony charges for throwing eggs at his neighbor's house.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department passed the case on to the L.A. County District Attorney (D.A.) on Thursday and strongly recommended that the "Baby" hitmaker be punished to the fullest extent of the law for allegedly causing $20,000 in damage to his neighbor's house in Calabasas, California last month.
"I went to the D.A.'s office today with the paperwork, and I want a felony. Of course I want a felony," Lt. Dave Thompson told gossip website TMZ.com.
The D.A. is expected to make a decision on the case, which was originally filed as a misdemeanor but could become a felony due to the extent of the damage, in approximately one week.
Selena Gomez left rehab four weeks early.
The "Come & Get It" hitmaker checked into The Meadows in Arizona last month and spent two weeks having treatment before departing the facility, but it has now been revealed she had been enrolled in the six-week long DAWN program and staff at the clinic advised her to see out the whole course of treatment.
Selena - who was reportedly being treated for alcohol, marijuana and prescription drug Ambien use - checked out to attend the Sundance Film Festival in Utah to promote her movie Rudderless and told her advisers she would return to the clinic afterwards. However, according to website TMZ, she then decided she was "cured" and had no reason to return.
The 21-year-old star - whose on/off relationship with Justin Bieber is said to have contributed to her problems - felt completing the initial "survivor's week" was enough as that is regarded as the hardest part of the program.
Justin Bieber is to appear in court next month.
The 19-year-old singer has been given a trial date of March 3 by a Miami-Dade County judge over charges of driving under the influence (DUI), resisting arrest and driving with an invalid license.
The troubled star was detained on January 23 after police allegedly caught him drag racing a rented Lamborghini in Miami. Police officers claimed Justin, who is more than a year under the legal drinking age in the US, reeked of alcohol at the scene but his blood alcohol level was barely measurable at .014. However, it has been reported a toxicology test detected the presence of marijuana and Xanax in his system.
Justin Bieber's record label boss thinks the star needs to be the subject of an "intervention."
Universal chief Lucien Grainge admits he is "concerned" for the 19-year-old singer - who was arrested last week for driving under the influence (DUI), driving with an expired license and resisting arrest - amid reports of his drug use and is urging him to take a break and get help for his problems.
Speaking at the official Universal Music Group Grammys aftershow party at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, he told the Daily Mirror newspaper, "I'm very concerned about him. I've been concerned about him for many months. And Scooter Braun [Justin's manager], who I work with very closely and is supposed to be here, but is with him at the moment. The management, us... This has nothing to do with the business or records or releases, this is to do with the young man. He needs help. He needs an intervention. We are going to give all the support as a company to take as much pressure off him so he can look forward."
Justin Bieber's manager insists he loves and cares for the singer following his arrest on Thursday.
Scooter Braun - who discovered the star in 2008 - has reached out after the "Baby" hitmaker who was charged with drunk driving, resisting arrest and drag racing in a rented yellow Lamborghini was apprehended in Miami Beach. "@justinbieber love you and i will act in the manner of someone who truly cares. that is all I have to say. thanks for all those concerned... Been a long day. Bottom line is we are defined by how we handle adversity. Be there when it counts. Love fully in good times and bad [sic]," he wrote on Twitter.
The 32-year-old music manager also posted a cryptic message on Instagram which has since been deleted. "What defines us is how well we rise after falling," he wrote.
Scooter and other people close to Justin are said to have warned him to "get help" or they would not continue working with him.
Justin Bieber was charged with drink driving, resisting arrest and drag racing.
The "Baby" hitmaker was arrested in Miami Beach yesterday after being stopped for allegedly drag racing in a rented yellow Lamborghini and soon after he failed a sobriety test, is accused of disobeying officer's orders and was found to have an expired license.
According to reports, the pop star's entourage used their cars to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive at 26th Street, near the Miami Beach Hebrew Academy, so Justin could race his car.
Speaking at a press conference, Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez said Bieber "had been smoking marijuana and he did consume a beer." He added, "During the arrest Mr. Bieber made statements that he had consumed alcohol and had been smoking marijuana and had consumed prescription medication." According to police reports which Miami Beach Police posted on their Twitter account the officer "immediately smelled an odor of alcohol emanating from the driver's breath" and noticed his "bloodshot eyes" and he had "slow deliberate movement and a stupor look on his face."
