"I see drunk people..."

Okay, so he probably didn't say that in court...'specially since he didn't even show up.

I wonder if the average joe would have been treated this leniently. I have a friend in Ron's home state who was riding a go-kart in a cul-de-sac (with four other guys, one of whom owned the kart) and was a bit over the legal limit. He lost his license for a year, had to do a month in jail, plus all the community service, etc. and probation. With a fine of $1,800 if I remember correctly.

The cop had the audacity to tell him he was lucky, he could have been cited for operating an unlicensed vehicle as well. Sort of like punching someone in the face as hard as you can and then telling them they're lucky, since you were able to not step on their foot while doing so.

Osment pleads no contest to charges

GLENDALE, California (AP) -- Haley Joel Osment pleaded no contest Thursday to misdemeanor drunken driving and drug possession charges resulting from a July accident in which he crashed his car into a mailbox.

Superior Court Judge John Doyle sentenced the 18-year-old actor to three years probation and ordered Osment to spend 60 hours in an alcohol rehabilitation and education program, as well as attend at least 26 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings over a six-month period.

Osment, who didn't attend the court hearing, also must pay $1,500 in fines.

The actor's attorney, David Wood, entered the no contest pleas on his client's behalf to one count each of misdemeanor driving under the influence and misdemeanor marijuana possession. Two other charges -- another misdemeanor DUI and a vehicle code infraction -- were dropped by prosecutors.

Messages left for Wood and Osment's publicist were not immediately returned Thursday.

Osment fractured a rib and injured his shoulder when he crashed and flipped his 1995 Saturn in La Canada Flintridge on July 20. No one else was in the car, which hit a mailbox mounted on a brick base.

Authorities said the actor's blood-alcohol level was measured after the accident at .16 percent, twice the legal limit.

Osment's movie credits include "The Sixth Sense," in which he was nominated for an Academy Award, and "Pay It Forward." He recently finished work on the film "Home of the Giants."

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

Ahh Hollywood. The lights, the glamour and the ticking lifters of a 95 Saturn?

I was thinking the same thing. He should have at least been in a Civic.
