Judge to Wahler: You Can't Handle Your Liquor!

6/8/2007 5:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

While a judge sent Paris Hilton back to the big house for violating probation for driving with a suspended license, across the street at another probation hearing, a different judge let "Laguna Beach" badass Jason Wahler walk!

Wahler was arrested for criminal trespassing and assault in Seattle earlier this year, which prosecutors claim violated his probation from a September, 2006 battery arrest in Los Angeles. The judge denied the prosecutors' request to violate him, but reminded Wahler, who was dressed like an extra from "The Sopranos," about the seriousness of his alcoholism. The judge told Wahler that he "shouldn't drink" because "you can't handle it." Well, that and the fact that he is underage!

The 20-year-old must continue attending AA meetings and 36 more hours of anger management classes. Wahler will also have to continue with intensive rehab counseling at least four days a week. To avoid a 60-day sentence in L.A. County Jail earlier this year, Wahler attended what he called "straight up rehab." No Lohan day passes to the gym for Wahler!

The judge did warn Wahler that if (if?!) he messes up again, he'll be ordered into custody. Unfortunately, his track record isn't exactly exemplary. In the last year, Wahler has been arrested four times ... in four states.

Reading back on his arrests, I love the fact that he gets his ASS KICKED in every one of them. He drunkenly swings at someone [one time, a cop] who then proceeds to whip his punk ass.

Hilarious.

Driving Under the Influence of Fame The famous—Paris Hilton, Lindsay
Lohan, Nichole Richie, Mel Gibson, Ty Pennington, Vivica A. Fox, Tracy
Morgan, Haley Joel Osment, Michelle Rodriguez, George Michael, Ray
Liotta, Mike Tyson, rap artist Eve and players in the NFL, NBA and
MLB—all have one thing in common: driving under the influence. And
the public outcry over Hilton’s release and reincarceration only
underscores the fact that—famous or not—the nation wants
something to be done about it. Find out what MADD has to say and the
simple solution that could put an end to drunk driving. In the last
year, a great number of celebrities and high-profile sports figures
have been arrested for committing drunk driving offenses. Among them,
Paris Hilton has gotten the most attention—and public outrage. And
for good reason. Hilton has not taken responsibility for the fact she
drank before getting behind the wheel, drove on a suspended drivers’
license and then appealed to the governor for leniency in her sentence
for that offense. MADD believes she should accept full responsibility
for her actions, especially since a vast young audience is watching
her every move. MADD also believes that Hilton should have an alcohol
ignition interlock installed on her car so that she cannot drive drunk
again. In fact, through our Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving, we
are advocating for an ignition interlock to be placed on every car
for all convicted drunk drivers. The reason why people continue to
drive drunk is because they can. And Hilton is a good example. She,
like many others who have had their license suspended, continue to
drive. Ignition interlocks would put an end to this as an interlock
device prevents the car from being started if a measurable amount of
alcohol is in the driver’s system. Courts across the country are
too lenient on those who drive on suspended licenses due to drunk
driving. In addition to jail time, fines and other sanctions, MADD
would like to see at least a one-year interlock provision for those
who drive on suspended licenses. Armed with new data from the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which shows that
drunk driving fatalities are higher than they have been in 15 years,
MADD’s National Board met with Congressional leaders in June to ask
them for an increased focus on drunk driving across the nation and to
support MADD's Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving. In addition to
ignition interlocks on all convicted drunk driver vehicles, the
Campaign also calls for the exploration of new technologies to
prevent a vehicle from being driven by someone who is drunk as well
as increased enforcement and public support

This is not right. This guy violated probation, he's under 20 and an alcoholic. And he walks free? I'm not saying that what Paris did is alright, but where is the justice in this case? Assult, that's a whole other deal. Why didn't they offer Paris Rehab instead of the slammer? This guy hurts people, and he's walking free and attending AA meeting... That's crap!

You've got to be kidding me. He's UNDERAGE! This just goes to show that Paris was just sentenced because the judge was unfair. How can a guy who's been arrested so many times, violated probation and be underage not go to jail? And how is Paris, who was charged with reckless driving, and violated her probation for a traffic offense going to jail? Does that make no sense to anyone else???

It has been too obvious since watching him on LB and The Hills...that this jerk is a misogynist with a seething anger problem. Anyone who finds this attractive in a man, or boy in this case, needs therapy.....FAST.

What he failed to say is that Jason is Jewish and is being given preferential treatment and is being pampered by Jews of the neocon-ruined court system.
