Daniel Baldwin's Wife Sentenced to Jail for Drinking

7/20/2011 2:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joanne Baldwin -- the estranged and troubled wife of Daniel Baldwin -- has just been sentenced to 10 days in jail for drinking while on probation.

0720-joanne-baldwin-bn2

Joanne is on probation for a DUI.  Last week, Daniel called cops after Joanne allegedly made obtuse threats to kill him while extremely drunk.  He also claims during the relationship she has punched him and even pulled a knife on him.

Joanne's probation prohibits her from consuming alcohol.  When cops observed she was drunk, it triggered the probation violation. 

Joanne -- who will get credit for the week she's already served in jail -- is scheduled to be released tomorrow.

The judge ordered her to wear a SCRAM bracelet indefinitely -- until he orders otherwise.

Maybe she had to listen to Alec's politics at close range a bit too often and could no longer cope.

What a beautiful lady. Sorry she's having so much trouble in her life. It's got to be Daniel's fault. If I see him on TV for two minutes, I want to down a bottle of Jack Daniel's myself.

Looks like Abraham Lincoln didn't read the story before commenting.

I was going to say that's a pretty good-looking mug shot for a drunk, but then found out she's only 41 years old.

OK, I'm not condoning her, but if it was Lindsay Lohan, she wouldn't have been put in jail, or, she would have served "5" hrs. due to overcrowding. Why is that? Does she not have a good lawyer?

Maggie, it's because this happened in my state, Oregon, not California. They'll lock you up for any probation violation here, no second chances.

This lady isn'tjust an alchologic, she's dangerous. If I were her husband, I'd be prepared to leave with the kids until she remains clean and sober for a long period of time and is evaluated/treated for any mental problems she may have.

I don't think you meant "obtuse" TMZ. If the threats were hard to understand, how do you know they were threats? Or were they annoying threats? Either way, probably not the best use of obtuse!
