Judge to Vivica: You Booze, You Lose!

8/8/2007 5:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Vivica FoxYou won't be seeing Vivica A. Fox gettin' her drink on anytime soon -- one sip could bring the burpy DUI queen back in front of the judge.

TMZ was in L.A. County Superior Court earlier today, where a judge ordered Fox to stay stone sober until her September arraignment, but didn't, er, bar the actress from associating with drunks in Tinseltown. "She can be around it [alcohol] because of the nature of her work" the judge said, adding "but she cannot consume or possess it. I am not permitting her to consume alcohol." If she does drink, she could be forced to hand over thousands in bail money, due to the fact that she was originally released on her own recognisance.


The former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant was popped for DUI in March, after she whizzed past cops on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles. We're told Fox blew a .09 on a Breathalyzer test, just over the .08 legal limit. If convicted, Fox faces a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

ahhhhhh hello, what about the racist crap she said to the cops? when tmz reported call the stuff she said about the Mexican cop, and "her brother" help her out? did she say sorry? or did Jesse and AL set her straight ? because we all know that racist remarks are wrong, right? oh wait, she's not white, so it's no big deal. my bad!

What makes these judges think that they have any control over these hollywood twits?
They will continue to disregard the law, and continue going to expensive do-nothing spas, er, rehabs... down the spiraling path to self-destruction until they hit rock bottom or die.

Really now    

If it is accurate that she blew a .09 on the breathalyzer test (barely over the legal limit) the Judge's order is excessive and ridiculous. If Nicole Ritchie can get 90 hours in jail for driving on the wrong side of the freeway and under the influence and Paris Hilton get a few days for violating probation a few times etc something is clearly wrong here. With the notable exception of the Lane Garrison fiasco, it now seems that since the highly publicized Hilton sentencing every Judge wants to see his /her names in lights with their controversial show boating admonitions and rulings. DUI is a serious issue but this order is ridiculous.

Didn't she play the race card when pulled over, asking the black officer to "help a sister out." Pathetic.

This is crazy!! How fair is this:

1. Paris Hilton - young, rich, white, reckless - DUI = 45 days in jail commuted

2. Nicole Ritchie - young, rich, white, reckless - various charges stemming from and including DUI = 4 days in jail

3. Vivica A. Fox - early 40's, rich, black, reckless - DUI = 90 days in jail and a fine?

Where is the justice? Eve, watch yourself girl, there are two kinds of justice in Hollywood just like everywhere else, one for white defendants and one for us.
