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.

There are certainly two types of justice - one for the rich and famous and the other for everyone else.

She's the result of someone born to parents who had (past tense) money, lost it, and never taught their daughters to read a book, or be competent at anything. She got off easy this time, but probably learned nothing. Sad place that Orange County!

For some reason this story made me think of Beverly Hills Cop, Eddie Murphy and The Pointer Sisters

Wow, this girl's got a serious drinking problem. She has that look that serious boosers get and she's way too young for that. A .32 BAC is insane. Most of us couldn't get that drunk if we tried. I hope she gets help. The life of an alcoholic is not a happy one.

I thought DUIs could never be dropped from someone's record, and .32? She was surely blacked out drunk, thank God no one was killed, but next time how many killed in Newport Beach/Balboa area where she lives? She did not receive sentencing strong enough to prevent ongoing behavior.
