The Orange County District Attorney's office just issued a statement on Richie Sambora's charges related to his March 25th arrest.
Richie Sambora managed to avoid child endangerment charges stemming from his arrest in Laguna Beach, where he failed a field sobriety test after being pulled over with two minors (including his 10-year-old daughter Ava) in his car.
But every rose has its thorn (I know, I know, that's a Poison song!); He's still facing two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of alcohol and being over the legal blood alcohol limit of .08 (he blew a .13).
UPDATE! Richie pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor of driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 percent or more, reads the press release X17 received. He's sentenced to three years of "informal probation" (during which he's not allowed to have drugs or alcohol) and must take alcohol awareness classes.
Damn - considering he was charged with two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence, this is a slap on the wrist!
How did he avoid the child endangerment charge after the LB police recommended it?
