Ex-Punisher Thomas Jane Punished For DUI Conviction

Thomas Jane, who was charged with DUI earlier this year, finally got hit with his punishment yesterday.

Jane, who pled no contest, must pay a fine of $1700 for alcohol abuse and is sentenced to a year of probation.

Prosecutors dropped two other alcohol charges and two speeding tickets Jane got the same night he was pulled over for drunk driving.

I wonder how The Punisher would have dealt with Jane’s reckless endangerment of motorists.

Kurt Angle Avoids Being Put In Full Nelson with DUI Charges

Last October, a witness called the police saying that Kurt Angle was driving erratically after leaving a bar and may be intoxicated.  Well, Angle was slapped with DUI allegations, but today he was found not guilty.  Either Angle has a heck of a drunk driving defense attorney or it could be the fact that Angle was never seen driving the car by police officers.  That witness better be put in police protection… Angle doesn’t take to kindly to being dissed.

Shia LaBeouf was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of drunk driving, after he tried to make a left turn at an intersection of West Hollywood and instead got into a car crash when he ran into another vehicle. LaBeouf rolled the truck he was driving, injuring his hand and knee in the process.

LaBeouf, star of this summer’s INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL and last summer’s blockbsuster TRANSFORMERS, was booked for a misdemeanor DUI and then released for medical attention for his injuries. A female passenger of LaBeouf’s and the driver of the vehicle he hit were not seriously hurt. Neither their identities or if they have a Los Angeles DUI lawyer for representation are known at this time.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, and his publicists did not return immediate calls made by The Associated Press.

LaBeouf was previously arrested in Chicago last year after a drunken confrontation with a Walgreens guard and was charged with criminal trespass. The charges were later dropped.

Kim and Khloe Kardashian

Way back on March 4th 2007 Khloe Kardashian, the least famous of the Kardashian brats clan, got a DUI and was sentenced to 36 months probation. Khloe, who had a blood alcohol level of .13 ( the legal limit is .08 ) at the time she was pulled over, was also sentenced to pick up trash with Cal Trans.

This month, it has come to light that she has not been complying with the Cal Trans requirements or the alcohol education program, and the judge overseeing her case has ordered she serve 30 days in jail. On Friday, July 18th, she will surrender herself (and thus miss the opening weekend of The Dark Knight) to begin serving her term.

Never one to miss a spotlight opportunity, Kim noted on her blog “I urge people to learn from the mistakes of others. Please drink responsibly and it’s never acceptable to drink and drive!”
