Dina Lohan pleaded guilty to charges of aggravated drunk driving and speeding Tuesday, earning herself 100 hours of community service before her sentencing hearing comes up in early June.  "I'll never be back here again. You can quote me," the 51-year-old told Newsday on her way out of court and into a silver Rolls-Royce.  It was all part of a deal that come June 3 will see Lohan's license revoked for a year and an ignition interlock device installed in her car. The judge also said he would sentence her to alcohol-education classes, and she'll be paying $3,100 in fines.  She'll have to play by the rules for a year, the judge said, as a condition of her discharge.  Lohan, mother to  is-she-still-sober  actress Lindsay Lohan, was arrested last September in Long Island, N.Y., going 77 mph in a 55-mph zone, according to police.

DWI officials said the proposed deal calls for DWI to issue 17 million new shares of its stock and use them to buy Otec's real estate assets.

Recently a relative was sentenced to 6 months in jail for drunk driving (DWI) and although this upset me, it was tempered by the fact that I'm also upset by DWI. Even though I miss her, I felt 6 months was appropriate. Then I read about the "gypsy" cabbie's 15-month sentence and I thought it was odd that a gypsy cabbie received a longer term than a DWI. The next day I read of an actor plea-bargaining a charge of car bombing to avoid jail (and possible further charge reduction to a misdemeanor)

"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn's death in a fiery crash when his Porsche ran into a forested area at high speed raised questions as to whether alcohol was involved. Though the toxicology results may not be released for weeks, Dunn apparently tweeted a photo of himself having a beer with friends shortly before he and passenger Zachary Hartwell died. Film critic Roger Ebert soon tweeted, "Friends don't let jackasses drink and drive," which drew nasty responses from fans and friends. It's a sad story, and one that is all too common.

This is a story of young lives changed in an instant, of bloodied bumpers and broken bodies, grieving parents and tearful classmates. It is a story not of those who died, but rather those who lived, knowing their actions were the cause--however accidentally--of another's death. In August, four Anaheim High School athletes died when the Chevy Suburban they were riding in crashed near Victorville. Police found more than 40 empty beer cans strewn about the wreckage.

Jason Kidd will have to wait a little beyond the start of the regular season to experience his first real games as an NBA head coach. The Brooklyn Nets have suspended their former player and new coach for the first two games of the season after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drunk-driving charge in July, the league announced Friday. According to Nets General Manager Billy King, the suspension “is consistent with what the league has done in the past and we look forward to Jason leading our team versus Orlando and the rest of the year.” Kidd played for the then-New Jersey Nets for six-plus of his 19 NBA seasons, leading them to the NBA Finals in 2002 and 2003.

Police have reportedly confiscated convenience-store surveillance footage of singer Randy Travis, who allegedly walked naked into a Tiger Mart in north Texas on Tuesday night, demanded cigarettes and then left in frustration shortly before he was arrested on the side of the road on suspicion of DWI.

Rick Springfield has wrapped up his DUI case by pleading no contest to reckless driving, thereby avoiding time behind bars related to a 2011 arrest in Malibu. The "Jessie's Girl" singer, who was pulled over May 1 of last year for speeding on Pacfic Coast Highway, will serve three years' probation and attend a three-month alcohol-education program, the district attorney's office said. Springfield, who did not attend Thursday's hearing, was allegedly driving with a blood alcohol content of .10%, which exceeds the legal limit of .08%.

The 911 caller didn't know he was describing Randy Travis. “I just found a guy lying in the road,” he told a dispatcher just after 11 p.m. Tuesday, adding that the country singer was crumpled on a highway 60 miles north of Dallas. “I'm kinda spooked out," the caller said. When authorities arrived, the scene grew stranger: 53-year-old Travis was naked, bruised, reeking of alcohol. He'd apparently run his Pontiac Trans Am off the road and into construction barricades, scattering the cones.

Tears drip on this patch of hardscrabble central New Mexico desert land -- tears in steel, tears in concrete. A mother's tears. This is Sonja Britton's field of shattered dreams -- a unique national memorial to victims of drunk drivers budding from four acres of scrubby grass dotted with cholla cactus and yucca. Victims like Britton, who lost her only son when a drunk driver motoring down the wrong side of a road near Durango, Colo., plowed head-on into a car, which in turn struck the motorcycle her son was driving.
