'Final Destination 3' Star

Booze Class Express

2/7/2012 11:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ryan Merriman
"Final Destination 3" star Ryan Merriman has just been sentenced to a fate worse than jail in his DUI case -- alcohol education classes.

TMZ broke the story ... Merriman was charged with two counts of DUI last month after his boozy November arrest in Newport Beach. The actor pled no contest today to driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or more, and the remaining DUI count was dismissed.

Showing no mercy, the judge sentenced Merriman to an accelerated alcohol program -- and 3 years informal, unsupervised probation.
 
Merriman also has to pay $390 plus fees. THE HORROR.

I'd rather go to jail. When I did that class one of the guys turned up late and was about to offer an excuse when the instructor asked "couldn't find a park?". Said moron answered yes.

There is an error in the story. Count 1 was dismissed; he only pled to count 2.

slap on the wrist. one dui gets you 30days and 12 month suspended license. two would give you 1 year and 10 year suspension. especially with 2 in in less than a month, on top of another alcoholarrest 3 months ago. when he drives drunk and kills someone the judge should be arrested for negligent homicide.
