Mischa Done With That Whole DUI Thing

4/10/2008 2:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mischa bartonMischa Barton pleaded no contest in Beverly Hills court today to DUI -- and in return got the marijuana charge against her dropped. Everybody wins!

As we reported, Mischa's lawyers drew up the deal on Monday, which also had a driving without a license charge reduced to an infraction. The former star got three years probation, nearly $2,000 in fines, and has to complete a three-month alcohol education class by September 17. She seems pretty well educated about alcohol to us!

Mischa was busted last December after cops saw her "straddling two lanes of traffic and failed to signal when making a turn."

I am so sick and tired of all the celebrities getting off so easy for putting that many people's lives in danger by driving drunk. I absolutly DETEST drunk drivers, and the thought of getting basically a slap on the wrist is apalling to me. What do these "celebrities" have to do to actually get in real trouble?

Is it plead, or pled? As in, pled guilty?

Can't stand her! She's overrated and completely useless. Plus it's just another celebrity thinking they are above the law. Damn stupid b*tch.

If she got just an infraction for driving without a license. why would the LA DA still want misdemeanor charges against Britney Spears? Because she's Brintey? Double standard?

what gets me mad is that, it doesn't matter in some places if you're famous or not. My brother was almost killed by a THIRD OFFENCE drunk driver.

He had a valid drivers license, and he still had insurance. How do you have insurance and drivers licence when you're going 0 for 3 in bodily harm causing accidents?

we need to start getting tougher drunk driving laws, starting with hollywood who glamourizes, then gets away with it.

I laugh at other's misfortunes    

And she wasn't in court during the proceedings. Can us normal Joe's ditch out on our hearings. or is it just a celebrity thing?

Once again more press for the has-been. She should be happy that she made the news again, cause its really all she has. What'll her next step be, probably commenting on this incident with a tactful no-comment and 'just want to move on' or she'll wear another hideous outfit so that she knows people will talk? This 'never-was' knows how to work the media.

Now it seems that everytime I see Mischa Barton, that horrific picture of her picking her nose pops up in my head. Thanks, TMZ.
