O.C. 'Housewives' Star

Pleads No Contest to

Cop-Punching DUI Charges

EXCLUSIVE

0128_lindsey-knickerbocker_gettyThe daughter of "Real Housewives of Orange County" star Tammy Knickerbocker won't spend another second behind bars after being convicted of drunkenly smashing into a bunch of cars and punching a cop.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsey Knickerbocker got popped in one of the craziest DUIs ever -- not only do cops say was she insanely drunk (she had a BAC of .32%), but she allegedly committed a multi-car hit-and-run too.

And for the topper, she allegedly slugged a cop in the gut.

Now TMZ's learned Lindsey struck a deal ... pleading no contest to 3 charges -- DUI, hit-and-run, and battery on an officer -- and a 4th for driving with a BAC of .08% or higher has been dropped.

Lindsey was sentenced to 3 years probation, 129 hours of community service and a 9-month first offender alcohol program.

She was also sentenced to a single day in jail ... but got credit for time served.

Are you kidding me?! Someone that is even coherent enough to blow that high and still be driving has a serious problem. She's not even being punished! She will absolutely do this again.

The judge should have ordered her to remove that disgusting fake orange tan. The reality tv brats are useless. Especially Lynn Curtain's. They think they are entitled.
