people need to think about how this person started drinking, why was she allowed to go to these clubs and drink before age 21 these clubs would serve her and no ? asked, but if a non-star would come in they would not get in the club to begin with. I think that the law should start breaking down on these clubs real hard. not to mention start taking their liquor permits away for serving to minors. I guess money can buy averything

Under the Influence of Fame

The famous such as 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.

Why do all you people keep posting that "she should have stayed in jail", "why did they let her out?" , etc. They did not "let" her out. She posted bail!!! Which ANYONE in that situation would be allowed to do (Even murderers can post bail) Just that most of us could not afford it. She is innocent until proven guilty. there has to be a TRIAL!!! People Then, if she is found guilty the judege can ORDER her to prison. Am I the only one who took 8th grade Civics class and understands the way the legal system works. Jesus!

how come we haven't heard from her mom yet? where is she to defend her? i can't wait to here this excuse, that she is misunderstood and young... that's what happens when you have a coked-up momager who brings her daughter to club underage and pushes her into the spotlight - such a shame, a waste of another young potential talent....

WHAT A LOSER!! Did her PR people ever get the message that addicts have to WANT to get clean....you can't shove it down their throats. It is obvious that she just goes through the motions to please her agents and movie producers. If she wants to be a broken down, addicted, space queen, let her do it. She can't act, anyway, so let her lay face down in the gutter if she wants to. She gives real recovered addicts a bad name.

And to whoever said 'growing pains...' No. It's possible, hard as it is for some to grasp, to grow up without becoming a drug addicted moron. I somehow managed, I've seen others manage, & I expect others to continue to manage. Make a few mistakes, yes. Drink too much, feel sick, learn... That's normal. Obliterating your brain cells, reworking your chemistry by alcohol you're not legally supposed to get at your age, or stuffing in 'fun, rec drugs' that you're never supposed to have, is not 'growing.' It's 'I grew to this young age despite being too stupid to live.' It also means you're a serious & genuine risk to the rights of others to live through THEIR growing pains, which may not be quite so hazardous to the well-being of others as these collossally stupid females we've been subjected to over the last few years.

Standards are badly needed.    

Explanation of Lawyerese (spin):

'Relapsed' = got caught again, either DUI or under the infuence/in posession of controlled substance or both, and/or driving on suspended licence, probably.
